Every day, more than 100 million plastic bottles are used worldwide. 90% of the cost of a plastic water bottle is due to its packaging and not because of its quality. In Pakistan, 35% of people do not have access to safe drinking water. Majority of our population uses bottled water because it is considered a safer option. But is the case?
It has been found out that bottled water is one of the leading causes of male infertility, cancer, diabetes and even skin diseases. What we reckon to as safe water in lucrative packagings is actually destroying our healths.

In this article, we’ll take a look at how bottled water leads to male infertility, cancer, and other problems.
Infertility in Men:
40% of all infertility cases have no apparent cause. However, one that is currently detectable is an increased use of plastics in everyday lifestyles, causing an increase of infertility worldwide. Most plastics contain toxins that have a negative effect on the body’s immune system and even hormone regulation.
Researchers have found that exposure to chemicals from plastics might be to blame for low sperm counts in young men. The chemical known as Bisphenol A can is found in plastic containers and water bottles, till receipts, on the inside of cans and bottle tops and in plastic packaging and tubing, and has similarities to female sex hormone estrogen. This leads to decreased sperm count.

Can Lead to Cancer:
Plastics used for bottled water contains Bisphenol A (BPA). BPA when exposed to heat, leaches into the water and creates many bad estrogens. When the high levels of bad estrogen circulate into the body, it can cause breast, ovarian and prostate cancer. Also, if water has excessive levels of arsenic in it, it can lead to skin diseases, diabetes and other diseases.
Adding Pollution to the Environment
Plastic bottles are not biodegradable. What we consume and throw away in minutes might just stay on the planet for more than a thousand years. This ultimately contributes to the destruction of the environment and also pollution.
We as a society don’t understand how exposed we are to chemicals and plastics. We need to stop using water bottles as if they are a luxury and understand how big a health hazard they are for us. Never drink from a plastic bottle. Instead, you should use and carry a non-BPA bottle with filtered water every time.
