Can water go bad?

Really, water cannot degrade. Or at least that’s what we tend to believe after consuming it nonstop for several days from a big bottle. It’s unclearness is the problem. The safety of drinking water is influenced by a variety of factors.
Water cannot spoil because it lacks any components that bacteria or fungi could require to develop, such as carbohydrates. These are the factors that lead to food spoilage. However, if it’s not stored properly, it could be harmful to your health. Even though it may alter how food tastes and smells, you should still eat it.

Water shouldn’t be kept in a warm or bright area, such as a car during the summer. Particularly in the case of bottled water. Due to the high temperature, more dangerous compounds from the plastic bottle enter the water.
According to studies, plastic packaging causes compounds that are dangerous to enter the water. This type of water consumption may cause hormonal imbalances or the development of cancer. Therefore, water must be carefully stored and consumed before the date indicated on the package.
