Harmful Bacteria on Reusable Plastic Water Bottles

If you drink water through an average reusable bottle, you should know how dirty and full of germs it can be. Recent germ study on disposable water revealed their uncertainty with being too germ-full. Drinking water during exercise with such bottles may actually make you sick.

Doctors have proven that when it comes to drinking water, stainless steel is much better than plastic because it has lesser chances of bacteria on it. Bacteria on water bottles can cause skin infections, pneumonia, blood poisoning, etc. Most of the disposable water bottles have a slide-on cork. This slide-on cork contains more bacteria than you can imagine.

Doctors have also proven that half filed bottles in bags can get more bacteria on them. These bacteria go into the stomach as soon as you gulp on the water inside. Reusable water bottle distribution has become one of the most popular local businesses in Pakistan. In bigger cities, such as, Karachi and Lahore, reusable water bottles are being manufactured and distributed. However, authorities seem to be unaware of the health risks of plastic disposable water bottles.

Besides authorities and the government, people also seem blind when it comes to health hazards caused by these bacteria on disposable water bottles. They seem to buy all the local plastic reusable water bottles very often without even checking on the safety of the water. It is high time people should realize that bacteria on plastic water bottles can cause serious health problems.
