  1. I think we also need to make recycling more readily available, but that’s a whole ‘nother issue…

  2. I heard that if people drank tap water (where it is safe to do so) and donated the money they spent on bottled water then every single person in the world could have safe drinking water.

    Something to think about.

  3. i agree

  4. Glad to know that I’m not the only “old fart” still doing what the article suggests!

  5. What about those of us who get sick drinking tap water?

    When I was young, tap water was fine.

    In 1985, I had the flu after drinking tap water and was given intravenous fluids at a clinic. Since then, I drink bottled water.

    Would buying a filtered water device for the tap taste better? We have a refrigerator filter, but I don’t like the taste of that water.

  6. The flu is caught when someone else who has the flu coughs, sneezes, or speaks. While you could possibly catch the flu from handling something someone who has the flu has handled, you cannot catch it directly just by drinking plain tap water.

  7. Dr. Grohol,

    Could there be something in the tap water making me sick?
