These problems with drinking water are just a few of the reasons
why Americans are drinking more and more bottled water.
But this presents in own set of problems.
BPA is an industrial chemical that enters the water and acts as a synthetic form of estrogen and has been associated with hormone disruption in both men and women.
This can cause breast growth in men and miscarraiges and early menopause in women.
Bottled water manufacturers do not remove metals, prescription drugs, pesticides
and other contaminants that are often found in tap water.
And the environmental effect of water bottles can be devastating.
