We attempt to approach the Ministry of health with a request to ban the high BPA, plastic water bottles and replace it with exchangeable glass ones .
"BPA exhibits hormone-like properties that raise concern about its suitability in consumer products and food containers. Since 2008, several governments have questioned its safety, which prompted some retailers to withdraw polycarbonate products. A 2010 report from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned of possible hazards to fetuses, infants, and young children. In September 2010, Canada became the first country to declare BPA a toxic substance. The European Union, Canada, and recently the United States have banned BPA use in baby bottles." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bisphenol_A
Yet, all UAE local water is bottled win plastic that gets exposed to the very high temperatures making it a ticking bomb for our bodies.
It is the most vital element and a concern to all of us.
