WA­TER BOT­TLE

Best Health - - WELLNESS NEWS -

You’re do­ing a good thing by drink­ing from a re­us­able wa­ter bot­tle and not dump­ing plas­tic into land­fills af­ter ev­ery drink, but for a clean so­lu­tion, wa­ter bot­tles are shock­ingly dirty. Swabs from the wa­ter bot­tles of 12 ath­letes found that they con­tain 100 times more bac­te­ria than the av­er­age dog toy. Don’t for­get to wash your wa­ter bot­tle reg­u­larly and thor­oughly, es­pe­cially around the mouth­piece where the germs col­lect most.
