Boiled drinking water is safer for health than raw. To doubt the truth of this statement no one comes to mind, but the modern ecological situation corrects any axioms. A group of researchers has recently carried out a quite extensive work, which showed that by consuming water, we along with it absorbed and plastic. It concerns any water and not just bottled.
How to explain the presence of plastic in natural sources? We already know that the decomposition of the century. But discarded fifty years ago bag, utensils, bottle, clothing made from synthetic fibers and other products have already been found in nature. All of this day by day is decomposed and deposited into soil and then into the water. Incineration of this kind will not help. Because emissions combustion, caustic vapors, falling to the earth with precipitation.
The researchers say that more than 80% of drinking water sampled on all continents, have toxic plastic particles. In other words, drinking a glass of water, and you absorb all kinds of synthetics. During the digestion of these substances have a very negative effect on your body.
It would seem that the size of these particles is negligible (the study found plastic particles larger than 2.5 micrometers, or even if the smaller instances, can only show a new more detailed study), but if you calculate how much each person annually consumes water, drinking 2-2.5 liters per day, plastic will be typed decently. Modern filtering techniques are currently not able to clear fluid from such microscopic threats.
When ingested, the substances resulting from the processing of plastic, can affect the functioning of the endocrine system and internal organs, and the whole organism. Interestingly, after boiling, the situation is only growing worse. Significant temperature, affecting the plastic, force it to allocate a lot of toxins.
