Do you drink water? Congratulations: you drink plastic
Boiling water makes it safer for health. It would seem that this claim is not in doubt, but the current environmental situation is different. According to a large-scale study conducted by a team of scientists on a daily basis, along with drinking water we consume and plastic. And it concerns not only the bottled water as you might think, but the water "natural".
If on the origin of the plastic in bottled water, to explain hardly necessary, but with all the natural sources of much more interesting! As we know, plastic is decomposed several hundred years, which means that the package is ejected, say, 50 years ago, already "paid" part of themselves naturally. Pile landfills with disposable tableware, plastic bottles, plastic wrap and other plastic products annually decompose gradually getting into the soil, and then in water. Moreover, the burning of plastic waste here is not saved: corrosive vapors and combustion products falls as precipitation with rain. According to research scientists, more than 80% of the drinking water, which samples are taken on five continents contain harmful toxic plastic particles. Thus, with each drunk a glass of water a person drinks and synthetic substances that are digesting, have an extremely negative effect on the body. Moreover, the size of these particles may seem insignificant (less than 0, 1 micrometer), but at the rate of consumption of 2-2, 5 liters of water a day for a year of plastic "accumulates" a lot. Plastic products processing, getting into the body, can cause disruptions in the endocrine system work, deterioration of the skin, hair, nails and internal organs work. But this is not the worst: boiling water only exacerbates the situation. The fact is that under the influence of high temperature plastic allocates a bunch of toxins that can not be filtered by conventional methods.
