  • Well i don't think you can ALWAYS believe what everyone else does. It may be true but it may not be. I don't think tap water is good for you.

  • I think you can go to home depot, get a kit, and send it in to have it tested. it costs like thirty dollars.

  • check out this H2O experiment


    sure water's bad:



    1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting

    2. it is a major component in acid rain

    3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state

    4. accidental inhalation can kill you

    5. it contributes to erosion

    6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes

    7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients


    "it's in the water" is just a saying! Like when several women are all pregnant together like at work or something "don't drink the water! you'll get pregnant" Of course you don't get pregnant from water! LOL


    if you think it's the water, check with your local water board, they have to test water regularly. My city sends us out a report of the findings when they do it.<

  • I think tap water tastes funny so I filter it. Maybe the UFO's are poisoning your town's water.

  • Think about that movie Erin Brockovich. Not all tap water is bad, but if lots of bad things are happening to people around you its a good thing to check. Just remember though that bottled water has NOTHING in it: no fluoride (keeps teeth healthy) and no minerals. Sometimes drinking tap water is actually healthier for you.

  • My tap water comes out of a well, and I've had it tested. It tastes great and I love it!
