Yahoo! News: Bottled Water vs. Tap
Getting tired of us talking about bottled water yet? Well, since this topic is starting to hit the big news outlets, we thought we’d bring it up again. This time it’s Reuters (via Yahoo! News).
Bottled water is not necessarily healthier or safer than tap water, Tampa, Florida-based sports nutritionist Cynthia Sass told the American College of Sports Medicine 11th annual Health & Fitness Summit in Dallas. Twenty-five percent of all bottled water is actually repackaged tap water, according to Sass. “Bottled water doesn’t deserve the nutritional halo that most people give it for being pure,” she says. “If you’re not an exclusive bottled water drinker, you may find it worthwhile to check into filtering your tap water to save money.”
