” Bottled water is not as safe as tap water says a report from Telegraph. It goes on: bottled water cost substantially more than what comes from the tap, but is not healthy for consumers a study has suggested.

Researches found bottled variety is subject to far less stringent tests than tap water and is much more likely to be contaminated or became a source of infection.

While tap water must be checked daily under a rigorous inspection regime, by contrast , bottled makers are only required to undertake monthly tasting at source it was claimed.

Tap water also contains trace amounts of chlorine that prevent the spread of anything harmful such a bacterial infection it was reported.

But once filled and sealed a bottle of water might remains in storage for months before it is sold and contains no disinfecting additives such as chlorine.” Finishes the report from telegraph.

The bottled water as business is estimated to be worth £ 1,5 billion in Britain each year.
