<<I won't even mention the nasty things that may be leaching out of that plastic bottle and contaminating your "pure bottled water" (which may well be Cleveland municipal tap water run through a simple filter).

Not to mention, the water has gone through an industrial process. Yeah, it was filtered, but what else happened to it?>>

Typically, water for bottled water, soda pop, beer and such goes through a process of reverse osmosis that is otherwise used to turn seawater into the tap water you (correctly) think is fine.

You don't want to drink bottled water? I'm not aware anyone is forcing you to drink it.

But bottled water is often a FAR better choice than no water at all, or other beverages.

I often made plastic bottles of water available at Cub Scout Outings, because boys and adults often drank it. FAR better than many other choices.

I will infrequently pack a lunch with a bottle of water if I'm going to be away from home. Without the bottled water, I would probably still eat lunch but might well drink less water.

Again, bottled water is a FAR better option than no water or less water.

It's unfortunate that there are so many water bigots who discourage healthy practices.
