Bottled Insanity: How our Bodies are being Poisoned by Drinking Water from Plastic Bottles

We have added a 7½ minute must-see video to the end of this article

The Daily Mail

A plastic bottle dumped in the sea, polluting the planet and marine life for centuries . . . also  poisoning all who drink the water with plastic microparticles now found in every human body.
It’s the greatest consumer con of all — a mass addiction to drinking ‘healthy’ water from plastic bottles that are destroying our planet … and now polluting our bodies. Last year more than £3.1 billion ($4.0 billion) was spent on buying 4,000 million litres of bottled water.  Experts predict we will be buying nearly 10 per cent more bottled water next year and every year after. And new research has confirmed for the first time that our bodies are becoming ‘polluted’ with plastic.

Mankind’s love affair with plastic bottles filled with water represents the pinnacle of human irrationality.

Despite rising awareness of the global environmental plastics disaster we have created, the trend for consuming vast amounts of an expensive product we don’t need (what’s wrong with tap water?) and then discarding the container, is growing rapidly.

Last year in the UK we spent more than £3.1 billion ($4 billion) buying nearly 4,000 million litres of the stuff. That’s 100 times more than we did in 1980. And new research has confirmed for the first time that our bodies are becoming ‘polluted’ with plastic.

It seems we can no longer venture out without clutching a bottle to protect ourselves against imminent dehydration. And experts predict we will be buying nearly 10 per cent more bottled water next year, and every year, for the foreseeable future.


All of this is despite a welter of warnings about the impact on the planet — and now on our health. As the Mail revealed yesterday, new research has confirmed for the first time that our bodies are becoming ‘polluted’ with plastic. We are eating, drinking and inhaling microplastic particles, some of which are derived from plastic bottles.

So how and where did the madness begin — and why does it persist?

This modern plague had beguilingly innocent beginnings at a time when sources of clean drinking water were limited. The first documented example of a bottled non-alcoholic drink being sold was in Boston in the United States in the 1760s, when a company called Jackson’s Spa started selling mineral water for ‘therapeutic’ uses.

Other companies followed suit and a market was born.

But the glass bottles used shared a problem: the metal caps imparted a foul taste to the content. In 1917, American inventor Webster Byron Baker made the first plastic bottle cap, by heating Celluloid and crimping it around the mouth of a bottle.

It was the start of the plastics revolution that really took off in 1941 when British chemists at the Calico Printers’ Association who were researching a new textile product, developed a form of plastic called polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

Within 25 years, scientists working for the American chemical giant Du Pont had found a way of making PET strong enough to contain carbonated (fizzy) drinks without bursting. It was cheap, lighter than glass and virtually unbreakable.

In 1978, Coca-Cola introduced the two-litre PET plastic bottle, which rapidly became the standard bottle material for fizzy drinks in all sizes. But there was a product that was far cheaper to make than sugary pop, and thus infinitely more profitable — fizzy water.

The French spotted the potential and first perfected the trick of selling H20 at hugely marked-up prices — by marketing it as a ‘natural’ miracle — initially in a green glass bottle. In 1977, a £4 million advertising campaign across America used Orson Welles to trumpet how ‘Deep below the plains of southern France, in a mysterious process begun millions of years ago, Nature herself adds life to the icy waters of a single spring: Perrier’.

Suddenly, Perrier was the only drink to be seen sipping. Sales in the U.S. increased from 2.5 million bottles to more than 75 million bottles by the end of the following year — helped by the burgeoning craze for aerobics and healthy living — followed by rising sales in Europe.

In 1985, Time magazine declared that ‘water snobbery has replaced wine snobbery as the latest noon-hour recreation. People order their eau by brand name, as they once did Scotch’.

Within five years these two agents of the environmental apocalypse — water and plastic bottles — were being combined, and the big brands jumped aboard. PepsiCo launched Aquafina in 1994, Coca-Cola’s Dasani emerged in 1999, and Nestlé’s Pure Life in 2002.

No matter that nearly a quarter of the bottled water being sold in America was actually filtered tapwater, the marketing departments were in hyperdrive, creating a liquid gold-rush.


Any environmental worries were squashed underfoot. For example in 2008, in a masterpiece of ‘greenwashing’, Nestle declared that: ‘Bottled water is the most environmentally responsible consumer product in the world.’

It added: ‘Most water bottles avoid landfill sites and are recycled.’

Such claims were vigorously challenged by environmental groups, but to no effect.

Over the past two decades, bottled water has become the fastest-growing drinks market in the world. The global market was valued at £120 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach £215 billion by 2020.

Here in the UK we use about 38.5 million plastic bottles every day, driven largely by the bottled water craze, although other fizzy drinks and juice in plastic containers are a factor, too. And rather than being recycled, more than 15 million of these bottles are, each day, either incinerated, dumped in landfill or discarded on the land or seas where we know they can enter the human food chain via contamination of marine life.

It is ironic that a product initially marketed as a boost to health has, through its association with plastic, become a threat to health. Even before the new findings by scientists at the Medical University of Vienna were published this week, the World Health Organisation (WHO) had announced a review into the potential risks of plastic in drinking water.

This followed an analysis of some of the world’s most popular bottled water brands which concluded that more than 90 per cent contained potentially harmful microplastic particles.

Yet still we buy the stuff, proof that the power of marketing can trump the concerns of world-renowned scientists. According to Stephanie Cote, an environmental scientist at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, bottled water is positioned as the ‘elixir of youth’, with which we can salve our instinctive fear of ageing and death.

It might sound far-fetched but in her study, published earlier this year, she cites a 2013 Evian marketing campaign in which people are seen walking past a window and seeing themselves as babies in the reflection. Nestlé, meanwhile, used the phrase ‘Drink Better. Live Better’ in its Pure Life campaigns.

The peddlers of bottled-water are also shameless in their use of pristine shots of snowy mountains and glacial lakes, implying a lack of pollution and ignoring the evidence of the harm that their products wreak on people and the environment.

Other research has shown young people are influenced by advertising that associate bottled water with ultimate convenience — so convenient that they ignore the alarming reality, such as the fact that research shows 90 per cent of teenagers have gender-bending chemicals from plastic in their bodies.

If ever there was a time to take stock, then it’s now. But be in no doubt, there is a long way to go before we kick this expensive, pointless and lethal habit.

  1. There are thousands of pollutants in what we eat and drink. But some of us manage to live long and healthy lives. I am 85 year old despite being ignorant of healthy foods. Genetics contribute a major portion to our longevity, But avoiding Nazi extermination or auto accident deaths has helped me live a long and safe life.

    1. ¿Don’t? you eat Kosher, Melvin, Mega-Jew-Supremacist that you are. I thought Kosher food was supposed to be the healthiest food around [ as per the joo propaganda ] . How can be it that a Mega Jew Supremacist like you is ignorant of the healthiest food around, joo kosher food. You can’t possibly be ignorant of the healthiest food around, joo kosher food, so why do you disdain healthy joo food for unhealthy garbage NON-jooish food? What, by the way, what does “glatt” mean”? As in “glatt” kosher. What the hell does “glatt” mean? I like cinnamon raisin bagels, especially with cream cheese, bagels are jooish. Is cream cheese also jooish? I think cinnamon raisin bagels are the apex of joo “cuisine”. I like borscht and I even like matzoh ball soup. I tell you that so you’ll like me mo’ betta’. Thank you, TROJ.

      1. To: Therealoriginoljoe.
        Happy to hear that a Goy loves Kosher food and is interested in Jewish culture. Glatt Kosher means that the animal is examined by two Rabbis before being given approval for slaughter. Any sign of disease in the animal will be rejected by the inspection.
        In that way Glatt Kosher becomes more healthy.
        Your inquiry about my eating habits is that I don’t prefer Rabbi approved foods. My dietary habits include junk foods like potato chips or candy and I eat pork. Thanks for calling me a Mega-Jew and Supremacist. Hitler would have gassed me. Jews do have more than their share of financial experts plus achievers-nothing to feel guilty about. I repeat my longevity is due to genetics and avoidance of Nazi Jew spotting dogs.

  2. Recycling plastic is relatively a simple procedure to collecting it, because PET cannot be commingled with LDPT before it reaches the furnace. There is, also, “extruded”-type plastic, which is found in vehicle manufacture, etc. For this reason, any plastic containers must be segregated BEFORE they are granulated – which requires labor intensity at a “shaker line” (or during the collection process). Ergo, it is, mostly, not recycled.
    Container glass is the ONLY container material which can be 100% recycled, relatively cheap.
    Rather than a “deposit” being charged on glass bottles, there should be a consumer deposit charged on plastic beverage containers. (Same for steel, which recycling process produces “dross” when furnaced.)

    1. LDPT is “low density” polyethylene. PET is “high density” polyethylene. Coke and other soft drinks are vended in LDPT bottles. Milk and stuff like orange juice are usually vended in PET containers.

  3. The only bottled water safe to drink is Evian and preferably from a glass bottle than plastic that is probably why it is so expensive. They say there is no fluoride in it. There is a plastic island in the middle of the ocean the size of Texas so they say.

  4. It was gruesome watching that female biologist cutting open those dead birds using her bare hands. Who knows what diseases they might be carrying? But I guess she doesn’t use gloves because they, too, are made of plastic!

  5. Since March 11, 2011, I have become increasingly concerned with the quality of foodstuffs from the oceans and seas. As I began noticing “sea salt” in lists of ingredients in processed foods — even “organic”, non-GMO kinds — I have wondered about the purity — and the degree of radioactivity! — of the sea salt added. I learned a couple of days ago that “unrefined sea salt” has substantial amounts of microplastic particles; three “refined sea salt” products did not evidence that contamination. To use yourself as a food additive, buy refined sea salt. I skip any product that lists “sea salt” per se on its label.

    However, this theme (or meme) of “plastic pollution” certainly diverts attention from the plutonium, strontium, and other radionuclides likely partnering up with the microplasticity of our food. Anyone see a test for radioactivity in sea salt, let me know!

    1. RADEX RD1503+ (2018) with Dosimeter: High accuracy geiger counter, radiation detector.

      Geiger counter for everyone: Simple, Reliable and Affordable.
      This model is the next version of RADEX 1503 model upgraded in 2018.

      RADEX RD1503+ can be used by non-professionals for quick and reliable measurement of radiation background.

  6. About as apropos a symbol as you might find for our modern Iron age Kali yuga societies. Crude and unrefined, like the petroleum they come from. Thanks be to the individual exceptions who are always and forever welcome, no matter caste, creed, race. (aka) The dwindling minority.

    1. HP

      Considering the school of thought saying that the planet has been moving outta the Kali Yuga since around the time of the Magna Carta, it puts things in an interesting perspective, don’t it?

      Maybe this is how these Yuga’s phase out, kind of a “darkest hour before the dawn” thing 🤔

      1. BH, I don’t consider the modern re-arranged by westerners stuff in my ciphering.
        That just mucks things up, royally.
        Of course that’s just me, how I roll..

  7. Looks like unless the birds and fish turn out to be smarter than the humans and figure out which items are off the menue, we’re all doomed. Because there’s not much chance of corporate humanity getting the right handle on this problem in time, if it’s not too late already..
    If all plastic dumping was stopped right now and every bit of the stuff recycled, some way would still have to be found to clean it all out of the oceans, because there’s probably enough there already to do the job on the biosphere.
    Meanwhile most of the world still dumps its trash. When by now there should be no such thing.
    When the birds die and decompose all the plastic junk inside them washes back into the water to be eaten again.
    The stuff gets into the fish too, and everything that eats them…
    Larger sea animals that use sonar to hunt are disabled by the big explosions oil companies set off, the sound of which travels far underwater. They can’t find their food normally. . So the hungrier they get – the less discretion. They’re found deadline all over the world with tons of plastic in their guts. ..
    What a terrible way to die..
    Humans now have ‘morgellons’ disease, where weird fibers are oozing out from under their skins in itchy blisters.. I’ve seen it all over people.
    There’s a good chance the fibers are microscopic plastic particles..
    And it really is amazing how dumb the average consumer is about the plastic pollution crisis.
    I know all kinds of people who will tell you they absolutely hate environmentalists..
    Of course the typical establishment religious indoctrinate actually thinks none of it matters, since earth is doomed to the apocalypse anyway.
    God’s plan..
    Well, it may be sooner than they think…

    1. I note that this plastic bag/bottle issue is suddenly on the forefront. Why? It been around for more than 40 years and has been getting steadily worse, why all the sudden interest now? We have a local vote coming up on the ban-the-bag issue.

      From its inception, recycling was a hoax. All it accomplished was to allay concerns of using ever-increasing amounts of plastic, obviously it worked. Has anyone stopped to consider the amount of energy it takes to recycle, and more tellingly, where that energy comes from and who pays for it? I didn’t think so. What about oil spills? Why have they slipped down the memory hole? What about Fukushima radiation or chemtrails? If you think plastic is a problem, look around a bit more.

      Whenever one of these issues rises up from a quiet grave to loom large and menacing, me thinks it is yet another yid diversionary tactic. Not that the problem isn’t very real and very alarming. But then, what isn’t these days. Rest assured, this too shall pass. The really, really big question is which problem will actually lead to our demise? What we need is a Wheel – Of – Disaster! Step right up folks and spin the wheel to find out which disaster will wipe us off the planet. And remember, if the wheel stops on Jews you win the grand double dose of disaster!

      The problem with “environmentalists” is they are not out to save the planet, they are out to promote an agenda, often working behind the scenes with the very groups they are supposedly opposing. Groups like The Sierra Club and Greenpeace have been exposed for the shams they are. The agenda? Placate the dissatisfaction and guilt generated for that very purpose. To make the touchy-feely, urban mushrooms think something helpful/useful is being accomplished when nothing is being accomplished. Witness the featured article above.

      The same holds true for the disaster and food relief organizations out to help the poor, oppressed people in places like Africa. What happens is vast amounts of money change hands in the administrative process, while all those starving African children with flies swarming around the honey painted on their faces, never get fed. One food relief group was sending boatloads of food to Zimbabwe, (get that? When it was white Rhodesia, it was called “the bread basket of Africa.” See how “help” works in this world?) Mugabe and his cronies would drive down to the docks and cherry pick what they wanted, then left the rest to rot on the docks. Negro leadership at its very finest. So who do American dimwits elect as president?

      The fact is, these are nothing more than money generating outfits, invariably administered by Jews that skim off hefty chunks of profit while throwing a few pennies, at best, to the masses they are supposed to be helping. This is the Jews’ Tikkun Olam – i.e. making a better world for Jews by gathering all the wealth so it can be used against everyone else.

      Well, at my age, now living a relatively comfortable, care-free life for the first time, all I can say is – I GOT MINE! What about you? And what about your children? That’s one of my comforts – I don’t have any to worry about. What about you?

  8. Another aspect to plastic is the chemical additives used for stiffening. These chemicals are female hormone mimickers. To see what I ,mean take one look at “male” millenials especially from Korea and Japan. They also suffer much more because of a significant amount of modern processed soy in their diet.
    Solution: consume unprocessed food.

    95% of plastic in the ocean is below surface. Thus the problem is way larger than at first glance of photos of human abused beaches.

    Solution:if you want your males to be male stop buying junk drinks.

  9. Where I live the water is wonderful. Lake Ouachita quality.
    Fortunately most everyone in the US, even in the metropolis, can still avail themselves of pretty decent water right from the tap with the aid of charcoal sticks, iodine, silver and a couple other slightly more extreme but effective measures.

    Obviously the average bear can’t afford one of the marvelous new filtration systems but fortunately one doesn’t really need to.
    Water is #2 on the ultimate ‘must have’ list, innit..

  10. The finest water in the United States is in the southern Valley of Virginia and the surrounding Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains. It is studied and proven – and the reason PepsiCo and Gatorade have taken residence there. Two of the three largest springs are owned by my family, and we monitor their output for content. We have found that the aquifiers are so interconnected that development and well-drilling within 20 miles of one of them has had a measureable effect on the output – from 3500 gallons per minute, down to 2700 gpm two years ago, within a one-year cycle. Also, the water quality is effected, increasing ppm (parts per million) dissolved solids. Ergo, there is no forever guarantee of water quality, even in spring-fed sources. EVERYTHING we do above ground has an effect upon our water.

  11. the EPA was created by nuke intel generals in the first place.. since then, when the wrong people have acquired office, they’ve staffed it with cynics… a combination of nefarious insiders, typically avaricious corporate media and their degenerate political hacks have managed to put the EPA in the wrong place in the mind of the average citizen… but the fact is – if we do not revolutionize our methodology, we’re going to kill the planet…
    and it might already be too late…
    unfortunately DJT doesn’t get any of that, and the zionist cabal in control of the USA understands no such altruism…
    as long as you’re recycling as much as you possibly can, taking the trouble, following the 3 Rs, at least you’re doing something, proving to the universe your intent… if you’re taking no basic steps at all to save the planet, not recycling, for example, because of whatever excuse you want, then the universe will be less likely to show you another step… and if you’re someone who still throws his cigarette butts on the ground, you’re a moron…
    recycling is only a ‘hoax’ to the extent that it isn’t done enough, while people might think it’s saving us, whereas if all plastic were recycled, which should be the case, we wouldn’t be seeing these gruesome autopsy videos, beaches in the south pacific would be changing colors… that still wouldn’t stop morgellons though, if it is indeed a plastic condition… if you consume food from plastic containers, you’re ingesting micro plastics… in the next decade we’ll probably see increased plastic related internal medical problems… of course the commercial media won’t want to talk about those any more than they do about fukushima…

  12. Couple quick points…

    First, kosher food like everything else jewish, is but another hollow-hoax.

    It’s about ripping off the goy. They literally extort payments from trucking companies and factories for their satanist Rabbis to come and bless the food tankers and storage tanks for OUTRAGEOUS amounts of money each year, and I mean EVERY TANK TRAILER and every tank is charged separately.
    Last I recall it was about SIX HUNDRED BUCKS PER YEAR PER TRUCK AND TRAILER and a few thousand per factory tank and if not paid you can’t put a kosher seal and the kikes will boycott you.

    the kikes are parasites. Or if you prefer “termites” as louis farrakan just called them. He said he’s not anti-Semite he’s anti-termite. Lol

    Next point. Glass is obviously way better and is green, but it is also WAYYYYY heavier, so we would be burning TONS more fuel in planes, trains, and automobiles(trucks) to transport all these liquids in glass which would offset a lot of the pollution savings, as well as I’m presuming that far more fossil fuels are needed to remelt glass as opposed to plastic because of the higher heat required.
    However, I don’t care much about burning more fuel, we just need to put all the jews in Israel and then reverse the 3rd worlds breeding habits and we will be just fine.
