While health studies have produced much data proving that tap water is healthy and sanitary, Black and Latino parent seem to believe otherwise. Instead, minorities are consuming and spending a greater amount of their income on bottled water compared to whites.

A recent study in the Archives of Pediatric Adolescent Medicine illustrated this trend, reporting that Black and Latino parents were three times more likely to give thier kids bottled water than white parents.

At the same time, National Resources Defense Council research found that 17 percent of bottled water contains unsafe levels of bacteria, and 22 percent is contaminated with chemicals, including arsenic.

…authors of the recent study note that the reliance on bottled water may contribute to dental issues in minority children who don’t benefit from the fluoride purposefully added to tap water to maintain the nation’s oral health.
