Most people will drink bottled water in the car especially if it’s a long ride and if the weather’s hot.

However, we tend to forget to take out the bottle out of the car and we drink from the same bottle water the next day.

Did you know that it has an adverse effect especially on women?

It is the number one killer and cause for breast cancer.

The hot air heats the water in the bottle (plastic material) producing a chemical mix that can cause cancer.

The hot air turns plastic into poison when it mixes with the water.

Doctors found this poison in the breast tissue of those affected.

According to research, 93 per cent of the water in the bottle shows microplastic contamination.

The average microplastic particles found in bottled water are 10.4> 100 um for every liter of bottled water.

In short, there are about 10 plastic particles wider than human hair in every liter of water.

Scientists also find that bottled water contains two times more plastic particles (> 100 um) than regular tap water.

So when we drink one liter of bottled water a day, we will consume hundreds and thousands of plastic particles in a year.

Just imagine how dangerous drinking bottled water can be.

And imagine how dangerous water in a plastic bottle is for women who are susceptible to breast cancer? -/TISG
