    So far, nobody has determined if micro plastic in water is a health hazard. It has gotten the bottlers attention, though.

    It's been an alleged health hazard for sea life. I dont imagine it being any better for human life.

    If your bottled water is reverse-osmosis filtered, it "should" be clean of micro plastics. Reverse osmosis filters down to individual molecules. Turns salt water to fresh water by filtering out the larger salt molecules. The smallest microplastic molecules are still way bigger than an H2O molecule, so they should be filtered out.

    Take only photos, leave only bubbles, kill only time.

    I wonder if the new clean plastic bottles might contain microplastics as an artifact of the manufacturing process before they are filled.
