Is tap water as safe as bottled water?

Excerpt from;cbsnewsSectionsArea.3

Yes. It is a total myth that bottled water is cleaner. Drinking bottled water creates a ton of garbage because bottles are not recycled and take thousands of years to decompose. Tap water is just as safe - and often safer - than bottled water. The only difference is if you have your own well. The only place you shouldn't drink tap water is on an airplane.

  • Just buy a good filter and use tap water. I have been drinking filtered tap water for years as well as using my own bottles.

  • I disagree. Ppl recycle. And one MAJOR difference between tap and bottled water is that tap water is treated with flouride, which crystalized the pineal gland. Not good considering its the master gland of the body.

  • I have heard mixed reviews on bottled water. It seems that the brand also matters when it comes to how pure the water is.
