Twelve to fifteen thousand years ago, snow untouched by industrial pollution was compacted to form large glacial walls.
These walls eventually became icebergs and were subjected to modern air pollution thus, they may be contaminated, especially on the surface.Advertisers try to convince us of icebergs’ unspoiled purity, but such claims are worth examination (especially in light of recent studies that found bacteria in glacial ice).
Today, icebergs are melted and bottled after they’ve been towed from the North Atlantic toward the Newfoundland shore and broken into pieces.
Not surprisingly, Iceberg Water is an example of this type of bottled water.
