Every day, millions of people turn to bottled water as a clean, convenient, and purportedly safer alternative to tap water. Yet, recent studies suggest a lurking danger within these clear plastic bottles—PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances). PFAS are a group of synthetic chemicals that have been in use since the 1940s and are found in a surprising number of everyday products.
PFAS In Your Water
PFAS are popularly referred to as “forever chemicals”, and this name comes with good reason. Their unique chemical structure makes them incredibly resistant to degradation, allowing them to persist in the environment, and consequently, our bodies, for an alarmingly long period. These substances have been linked to adverse health impacts, including liver damage, decreased fertility, developmental issues in children, and an increased risk of certain cancers.
Now, you may be wondering, “How did PFAS make their way into my bottled water?” The answer lies in their ubiquitous presence in our environment. PFAS have been used in a wide array of consumer goods, from non-stick pans and stain-resistant fabrics to fire-fighting foams. Over time, these chemicals have leached into our soil, air, and water, contaminating many sources of drinking water in the process.
How Much Is Too Much?
According to a report by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), numerous popular bottled water brands contain detectable levels of PFAS. The FDA has currently not established a maximum contaminant level (MCL) for PFAS in bottled water, which raises concerns about the purity of this commonly used water source.
