ap water would be just fine except for one major problem: Fluoridation. Why is fluoride added to municipal water?... Google "The Fluoride Deception" and watch the video. The biggest problem with bottled water is the carcinogenous plastic being used to bottle water. When is the general public going to wake up?

If you can't drink bottle water how can you trust a simple filter? What makes you think, a filter will stop all the chemicals in water. What about well water, chemicals are there too. Distilled is the water I drink, nothing ihn there..... Hello....

One big problem with distilled water: It is devoid of all vitamins and minerals. The body needs more than just pharmaceutical vitamins and minerals!

I have never been a big believer that bottle water was better for you than tap water. Now that I know the industry sucks up 10 million barrels of oil annually, I will certainly drink even less bottled water. Americans are spoiled by conveniences, plain and simple.....

I never believed bottled water was better than tap water. Although I drink bottled water, I drink bottled water because it taste 100% better than tap water. I live in Fontana, California and supposedly the water here is very good. But whenever I drink tap water or even my children drink the tap water they always say it tastes horrible. The water is clear, fuzzy when you first turn it on but it surely does not taste as good as bottled water.

I have been using a Brita Pitcher for years for my water. Very cost-effective and definitely tastes better than any plain, unfiltered tap water I've come across. I will buy a small bottle of water every so often just to have a new bottle to re-use for my filtered water. As I live in AZ I need to stay hydrated!

Filtered tap water for me - take a big bottle (stainless steel) with me everywhere. My golf course won't allow plastic water bottles.
