we drink pur filtered water but carry around bottled water priced usually at $.10 per bottle or less, and RECYCLE....what ever they make with the recycled plastic would have to be make from something so
it's not a waste and by having the bottles with us we replesh our body when we need to with water.

I drink bottled spring water to avoid added fluoride in public water systems. I am sensitive to fluoride and it causes mouth sores. I would prefer to drink tap water and have done so except for the last 5 years. Is there a way to filter fluoride out of tap water?

I drink tap water when I'm home, and bring my own water with me to work in a thermos bottle. I sometimes buy bottled water if I run out of my water when away from home. The water supplied to me at home tastes good. Every morning I fill my reusable water bottle and drink from it throughout the day in addition to other liquids.

We drink water from our well, it tastes wonderful. Cart it around with me in bottles to hydrate while out and about.

My family (my 2 boys and I) stopped drinking tap water a few months ago cexause of water flouridation. We drink bottled water and recycle our bottles. Typically I try to buy Spring Water, however, I will also buy water that has been filtered by reverse osmosis, which is the ONLY true filtering system that will remove flouride from your water, unless there is something out there that I'm unaware of which may he the case. I also use bottled water for cooking and making coffee. Flouride is a a waste biproduct of the aluminum industry and.it is a complete government conspiracy as to.how it has gotten into 904 of.Americas water supply. Flouride, along with Aluminum Zirconium products (antiperspirants) are a neuro-toxin and are linked to alzteimers and dementia, as well as cancer-tumors and other deceases. With that being said, I will gladly pay the money and recycle my plastic bottles, rather than give myself, my Boys (8 and 9), or even my dog dirty contaminated poisonous water!:) We are all accountable for what we know!

I almost always drink tap water. Sometimes at a meeting there is no other choice but bottled water so I have to drink it then. I keep a bottle of tap water in my car to quench my thirst while driving. Why waste what little bit of money I have to spare on something that is easily available without cost through out the U.S.?.

Fluoride is perfectly safe. Speak to medical professionals about it. This fluoride is bad for you thing is a myth made up by some nut in Oregon. It's like the anti-vaccine movement. Funny how people will ignore the entire medical community, but will believe a couple of online articles. Same people who are saying don't vaccinate your kids or give them fluoride are the same people smoking pot, even though there are tons of studies about the ill effects.
