Fake Zamzam Water = Cancer Risk
The water is advertised as coming from the sacred well of Zam Zam in Mecca, which is the most holy city in Islam, and demand increases during Ramadan.
Westminster City Council said the water cannot legally be exported, so any on sale is unlikely to be authentic.
The tests, carried out by the London council last year during the Islamic festival of Ramadan, found Zam Zam also contained twice the legal level of nitrates, which can affect infants.
