When you think of bottled water, you normally think that they’re pure and good for your body.
However, this science project done by a young boy and his mom shows something that you’d never expect.
In the video below, you see Carson and his mother lining up 8 different brands of water bottles on the table.
As they explain, they’re trying to test the pH of each water bottles to see whether they are alkaline or acidic.
The pH scale ranges from 1 to 14, 1 being the most acidic and 14 being the most alkaline. Human bodies are naturally more alkaline, with a pH level of about 7.30 to 7.45.
Although we do not have a 100% consensus among scientists, consuming too many foods with high acidity level is generally known to damage our bodies. Besides, cancer thrives in an acidic environment, whereas they cannot survive in an alkaline environment.
Using pH paper test strips, Carson and his mother test the pH level of all the bottles. “This blue line means alkaline,” said Holly, Caron’s mother, in the video.
And what they found out about these 8 different bottled waters is shocking.
Out of the 8 brands, 6 of them turned out to be acidic. So, contrary to our belief, not all the watered bottles are healthy for you.
After they got the results, Holly decided to share what she found on Facebook – to let others know about the truth about bottled water.
“We just wanted to share this with you so that you know what you’re putting in your body,” said Holly.
