Independent water purifiers (including ones manufactured by Dasani) and water purifying tablets are not recommended for most residential water use.
They can increase your risk of exposure to microorganisms, and are often not recommended in commercial environments.
Water purifiers also may not work properly when used in a hot or humid environment, and may not adequately remove chlorine, a chemical commonly used in cleaning products.
In addition, many water purification products contain chlorine-containing additives that may also reduce the effectiveness of the disinfectant.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued an alert that warns that the use of certain types of water purifications is likely to increase the risk of cancer and other illnesses.
The EPA also said that some of the most commonly used water purifers, including Dasani’s, are not the safest for residential water usage.
Some of the chemicals used in the Dasani water purifies are chlorine-based and may cause skin irritation.
These chemicals are found in some other consumer products, including disinfectants, soaps, cleaners, detergents and disinfectants used in household plumbing.
The chemicals are also known to cause cancer.
In recent years, the EPA has issued more than 1,500 safety alerts for chemicals used to clean water, according to the EPA.
These alerts have been issued for chlorinated hydrochloric acid, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), benzene and toluene, among others.
These chemicals are known to have been linked to cancer, respiratory and reproductive problems, and birth defects.
