Heavy metals, including iron, lead, and chromium, are found in bottled water across several countries, posing health risks. Sun exposure and temperature fluctuations exacerbate metal leaching. Ingesting these metals can lead to severe health consequences, including stomach cancer, nervous system toxicity, and increased cancer, heart disease, and diabetes risks. To minimize heavy metal intake, be mindful of storage, purchasing precautions, filtered alternatives, label scrutiny, and water source awareness. Stay informed and vigilant to safeguard your health.
