Drinking water from plastic bottles can cause depression and cause severe harm to human health. To such conclusion experts in Europe and in Bahrain.
The basis for this concern were the studies professor, he discovered in the drinking water stored in plastic bottles, antimony, which can have a negative impact on human health. Number of antimony in the samples taken are very small and consistent with existing European standards on the content of impurities in drinking water. However, comparative studies have shown that the content of antimony in drinking water that is stored in glass bottles by 30 times less than in plastic.
The fact that antimony is used in the manufacture of plastic used to produce the bottle.Over time, antimony is gradually “washed out” from the plastic and into the water. In small amounts of antimony can cause nausea and depression, and in large quantities, scientists believe, it can lead to death. Number of antimony detected in samples of drinking water is negligible, however, scientists began to conduct research on the possible effects of prolonged exposure of this element on the human body.
Research professor worried experts from Bahrain University, who began to study the effects of antimony. The main objective of this research was the problem of removing antimony from the human body. If antimony is rapidly excreted from the body, then its use in small amounts is not harmful. However, if the body accumulates this element, the need for further and detailed study of the effects of antimony. Given that the majority of the population of Bahrain is using drinking water from plastic bottles it, and studies have not yet brought to fruition, it is recommended to buy and store water and juices in glass bottles.
