On Wednesday, November 6, 2013, IBWA participated in the local “Which Way L.A.?” segment of the national NPR radio show To The Point, hosted by KCRW's Warren Olney. The segment was related to the 100 year anniversary of the Los Angeles Aqueduct, celebrated this year.
Recently, a Twitter meme about a German study on endocrine disrupting chemicals has been making the rounds with headlines like – “Bottled water found to contain over 24,000 chemicals, including EDCs.” While dramatic and scary sounding, these claims are not actually accurate. In fact, many of the Tweets and social media posts are misleading and false, such as those claiming that PET plastic bottled water bottles contain BPA.
So, what did this study’s data actually show?
The International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) is proud and excited to be a supporter of a collaboration between the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) and PHA Honorary Chair First Lady Michelle Obama to encourage Americans to make an easy choice to help improve their health and well-being every day: drink more water.
