High arsenic levels in two bottled water

Earlier this year, Consumer Reports released findings that two brands of bottled water contained nearly double the federal limit of arsenic in water.

Now, Consumer Reports‘ findings are confirmed by California’s non-profit Center for Environmental Health.

HeathDay News reports, via Medicine Net, June 21, 2019, that these two bottled water containing levels of arsenic higher than tap water in violation of federal and California guidelines, are sold at Whole Foods, Target and Walmart:

  • Penafiel, owned by Keurig Dr. Pepper.
  • Starkey, owned by Whole Foods.

High levels of arsenic can cause reproductive damage and cancer, as well as hormone disruption and organ damage, especially in children. Products that violate recommended state levels of arsenic must carry a warning, according to California law.

Michael Green, CEO of the Center for Environmental Health, said in a statement: “Customers typically purchase bottled water at exorbitantly high costs with the assumption that it is safer and healthier to drink than tap water, unaware that they are ingesting an extremely toxic metal linked to birth defects and cancer.”

But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not recalled either brand of bottled water.

Most “spring water” that is sold commercially is actually well water. There’s a big difference. There are numerous springs where I live and people have been drinking the water from them for generations. Lately The State has been shutting them down one by one. There is one on the AT called “Pete’s Spring”, a small pool about 6 inches deep, where hikers fill their canteens, the best purest water I’ve ever tasted. The last time I was there a sign was posted warning that the water hadn’t been tested. So Pete’s Spring is next on the list. I guess they’ll… Read more »

When I can, I only buy Fiji and Gerolsteiner water, Fiji water has high levels of silicon which helps detox from aluminum (it binds to aluminum), which is present in vaccines, bakery products and in the air and water (chemtrails) as well as pharmaceuticals, deodorants and God knows what else. Aluminum (and fluoride) are suspected for causing dementia/Alzheimer’s disease. Arsenic is high in rice too, even “organic rice” because rice plants absorb it if present in soil, which it is due to past exposures to pesticides and herbicides used years ago. Sunflowers naturally pick up lead if present in soil.… Read more »

Seems like the only good thing in Miami is our water, delicious! To drink, to wash, to clean. Why throw my money away buying water when I’m paying the county my water bill.

I know that Nestle got their water from the Sacramento Municipal Utilities District (SMUD) for years. That’s the same water everybody on their mains drank. During the “drought”, Nesltle was allowed all they wanted. They had not paid their meager fees for decades.

My personal approach is to consider everything a scam until proven else wise. People in California are getting ridiculous ration quantities while Nestle takes what it wants. There oughta be a law!

I use an Alexapure 2-gallon filter. Water never tasted so pure & fresh. Even coffee/tea tastes better with filtered water.

I dare say, most people would think that anything that they purchase from “Whole Foods,” is 100% healthy. Doesn’t Amazon own Whole Foods, or am I confused?
