Penn and Teller think that bottled water is bullshit. Great video

John Stossel did some investigative reporting on bottled water last year for 20/20, including a blind taste test. I watched the report at the time, but the results are also still listed on the website:

http://abcnews.go.com/2020/Health/st...=728070&page=1

The cheapest bottled water (American Fare, which is KMart's brand) came in first place, Aquafina was second, NYC tap water (from a public fountain in central park) tied for third with Iceland Spring, Poland Spring came next, and Evian came in last place, by a huge margin, with most people saying it was disgusting.

Personally, I think tap water tastes better, but then again, it also depends on where you live, as I've visited cities that have terrible tasting tap water. But as long as I'm here, where the water tastes great (and I don't know why, maybe it's the flouride or whatever the hell else is in it), I'll stick with the tap water. The only thing bottled water really has going for it is convenience. Then again, you can always refill the bottles with tap water, if you want to carry them around.

The tap water here tastes awful here too, but I bought a filter pitcher and all the water I drink or cook with goes through that. The last place I lived though didn't have city or county water -- we had cisterns. And for the last couple years I was there I never had to buy water because the rain kept the cisterns full. That water was excellent! I still miss it (even though the filter does a pretty good job).

the tv says that tap water put through a carbon filter is best as you get rid of heavy metals, but leave the fluoride.

i think it's a carbon filter, anyway.

Uh, my tap water comes from Lake Michigan and it's pretty good.

At work, the people in my department pay for a water cooler. I usually buy a bottle of water and then fill it up. At home I drink tap water but I do buy cases of water from time to time.

I woke up with a stomach virus, so I pretty much don't have a choice. I have to enjoy bottled water today.

Water generally all tastes the same to me. In restaurants, I always take free water instead of the bottled water because I'm cheap...and it's just friggin water.

However, I like bottled water because it's easy to transport. And it comes with a resealable cap. And you can refill the bottle with tap water.

i had a gaggle of thirsty teenage girls in my backyard last week.

i told them to drink out of the hose and they wrinkled their noses and said "ew, yuck!"

it's unnatural. an entire generation that doesn't drink out of the hose.
