Are you drinking plastic?

In recent studies at State University of New York in Florida they found plastic in popular brands of bottled water .

To find these tiny pieces of plastic, scientists at the university used a dye that attaches to the surface of the plastic turning them to a different colour.

Some popular brands that include pieces of plastic:

  • Evian
  • Nestle pure life
  • San pellegrino

Some plastic is only from the lids of the bottle!

Will this stop you from drinking these brands of bottled water?
