Atlanta, Georgia, 01/04/2008 – Department of Research Writing at Acne Home reports using plastic water bottles after single use is hurting to health as it leaches several chemicals substances like antimony and bisphinol. Though these substances may exist before first use of the water, but its concentration is comparatively less. Studies reveal that there may exist other chemical substances but we do not know.
Most of the plastic bottles are made up of polyethylene, terephthalate known as petroleum based materials (PET). When these bottles are refilled again and again several times, their internal surface deteriorates and mixes in water. According to US EPA, Health Canada and Ontario Ministry of Environment, 6 µg l–1 of antimony is equal to drinking water guidelines. Therefore, though bottle water contains less antimony than regulated by water drinking guidelines, the concentration depends upon how long water is stored in the bottle and repeated usage.
As we use bottle water frequently, these substances may accumulate within our body. Your immune system is intelligent enough to recognize harmful substances, it rapidly produces antibodies against the agent. The antibodies stimulate your sebaceous glands to produce more sebum that clogs hair follicles. The clogged hair follicles, you know, must result in reddish bumps, called blackheads, pimples and papules.
Therefore, avoid repeated refilling the bottle with tap water for drinking. Doing so, will surely impact positively for your life.
