Bottled Water Is Good!
I was surprised to see a rebuttal in the Eureka Reporter to Susan Morton's op- ed the other day about bottled water. Not that I didn't expect someone might have something to say about it. I just didn't think the reason would be chlorinated tap water.
I've been even more surprised that chlorinated tap water wasn't brought up in any of the debates over water fluoridation, either here or anywhere else. Being opposed to water fluoridation- not for health reasons but as a matter of choice- I was expecting a comment from fluoridation proponents any minute:
We chlorinate water to make it safe. Should we take chlorine out of our water as well....
I don't know about that. I do actually have a Multi- Pure water filter that removes chlorine from the water, although I don't believe it removes fluoride. I don't know what to think about the supposed ill effects of chlorine Ms. Lewis refers to, although I've heard some of them from way back when.
Interesting ideas she brings up about using ozone or ultraviolet light for treating water, though. Maybe we should take a look at those options? I don't know.
One thing I'm wondering is how much of the bottled water being sold is chlorinated? After all, I'm told a lot of bottled water comes from a tap somewhere.
