Are you concerned about the chemicals in your bottled water? You should be. In September 2020, Consumer Reports found that numerous carbonated water brands contained measurable levels of PFAS chemicals. PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) have been linked to adverse health problems.
The Consumer Reports identified measurable levels of PFAS chemicals in over 40 bottled water brands. The study revealed that over 40 sparkling water brands, especially Coca-Cola brand Topo Chico, had significantly higher levels of toxic chemicals than still water.
While further research is needed to determine the full extent of the risks posed by PFAS chemicals, there is evidence that they may be linked to cancer and other health issues.
