I don't think that anyone really knows what causes this. You may never know.
I am using a Brita water filter. I have no idea if it does any good at all, but the water tastes really good.
After my diagnosis, I was afraid of tap water, coffee, wine and microwaves.
My doctor gave me good talking to and said that tap water was fine(as was coffee, wine and microwaves)
If the tap water wasn't fine, I guess everyone in the family would get BC...especially the people who had smoked all their lives. But, it didn't happen that way. I, who have always been so careful about everything that I touch or put in my mouth..I'm the one who got it...

I have low grade superficial non invasive BC. (ta). I have no risk factors whatsoever so when I was diagnosed with it I was quite shocked to say the least. All I have ever drank is bottled water assuming that it was better then tap water, and after reading various articles I am starting to have my doubts. I see where some bottled water actually has traces of arsenic of all things in it. I can't help but wonder if all of my drinking bottled water and nothing else had something to do with BC??
Does anybody know what brand bottled water is the safest to drink for someone with BC?? Or am I just going nuts about this??
