FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A new report by the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) released this month is exposing our looming health crisis lurking right in front of our faces, bottled water. In particular, single-use plastic bottled water. The go-to health drink, the one thing you offer guests that implies your hospitality, it's diminishing everyone's health, unnecessarily.
Until recently, most reports about the health implications of using single-use plastics concentrated on environmental impacts. As of late, research is revealing that the entire lifecycle of plastics is posing serious health threats. From oil drilling that contributes to failed air quality killing millions, to the microplastics readily available in product packaging that is poisoning billions. Research is providing us with studies that warn us about plastics, as the exposure to them through their entire lifecycle is toxic, has estrogenic (read toxic and fattening) effects, and take away from the health effects of drinking bottled water.
Cancer, neurotoxicity, reproductive toxicity, developmental toxicity, impairment of immune systems, impacts on the skin, eyes, nervous and gastrointestinal systems as well as the liver, brain and sensory organs have been documented to originate from the 170 fracking chemicals used to make plastic. Gastrointestinal issues brought on by bacteria commonly hosted on the surface of microplastics are being discovered and researched further.
The report points to carcinogenic substances released during manufacturing that have led to reproductive and developmental problems, cancer, and leukemia.
