Should Water Bottles Be Banned?


Recent studies have shown that it is 1,000 to 2,000 times more likely for a person to get sick from drinking contaminated water in the United States than by being exposed to Ebola. This means that while there are many other ways people can get very sick and die besides from drinking dirty water, the risk of death by drinking dirty water is much higher than what we’re currently frightened of when it comes to Ebola.

Further, paying attention to which way you hold your drink during hand washing will greatly reduce any potential contact with bacteria or viruses on your hands and most importantly – without relying on an antibacterial soap . There’s no evidence that household items like counter tops and toilet fixtures carry enough disease.
