Four different bottled water brands sold in Greece in the winter of 2001-2002 were analyzed for a wide range of chemical elements,
using neutron activation analysis (NAA). The elements Na and Br were determined instrumentally (INAA), whereas the other metals
and trace elements radiochemically (RNAA). The results indicated that the mean level of all the elements determined in the
samples were well within the European Union (EU) directive on drinking water and accomplish the drinking water standards of
the World Health Organisation (WHO) as well as of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
