Bottle it..!

I'm just curious about the mineral water companies in Bahrain. You see these firms transporting water bottles in open trucks. I'm referring to disposable plastic water bottles.

The sun passes through them and does not alter the plastic, and does not release toxins.

The danger is that it heats the water into the perfect temperature for bacteria to multiply, so that when you drink it again, it can cause problems like food poisoning, etc.

The other problem is with re-usable plastic water bottles that are made with bisphenol A (like those unbreakable nalgene bottles, some baby bottles, etc).

As time passes, this substance leech into the water, and are a known carcinogen. This effect is amplified when the bottle is filled with hot water, as a lot more of this substance is released.

The same bottles are being used everywhere in Bahrain schools, ministries and institutes, etc PLEASE!!!!!
