Bottled Water May Contain Tiny Particles Of Plastic, Study RevealsA new study claims a lot of bottled water may contain tiny pieces of plastic.

The research was conducted by a non-profit journalism organization called Orb Media.

Scientists ran tests on more than 250 bottles from 11 different brands sold around the world, and identified plastic in 93 percent of the samples.

According to the study, the global average was 325 particles per liter. Particle concentration ranged from zero to more than 10,000 likely plastic particles in a single bottle.

The World Health Organization tells the BBC it’s launching its own review into the potential risks of plastic in drinking water.

“Samples came from 19 locations in nine countries on five continents including Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Lebanon, Mexico, Thailand, and the United States,” said Orb Media in a press release.

The press release went on to state, “Ninety-three percent of bottled water showed some sign of microplastic contamination.”
The study was supervised by Dr. Sherri Mason, Chair of the Department of Geology and Environmental Sciences at the State University of New York at Fredonia.
