A new study has found high level of bacteria in bottled water in Canada. The Montreal study showed that heterotrophic bacteria counts, in more than 70 per cent of bottled water samples, exceed the recommended limits specified by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP). Researchers from Ccrest laboratories report their results today at the 110th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology in San Diego. Reading all these news I start thinking that is there anything safe to eat drink. everyday a news research proves something wrong. Take care friends.

isn't there anything that is safe anymore? at times, new researches cause paranoia already. things about the water we drink, the food we eat, the air that we breathe, and etc. =( well, i guess no matter how water is manufactured and distributed, we cannot totally rid it off all the bacteria known to man. no matter how clean we want things to be and no matter how germ-free we want our food to be, there will always be a microorganism that will be present. we cannot totally eliminate this fact. so i guess what can be done is just choose your best brand of bottled water and don't deprive yourself of precious Agua. =)

Maybe boiling water in the home by yourself is the best way.It's not safe to drink bottled water because the process during the bottle's production and transport maybe cause secondary pollution,sometimes the water in the bottle just come from the tap water.
