Drinking bottled water, which is practically sterile water, is not a good idea. It is free of any minerals and probably more harmful to you than the little fluoride in our tap water. BTW, I don’t think you really mean it when you say our water supply should be chemical free. You should probably research the whole topic with a little more objectivity.
I drink re-mineralized water purified by the reverse-osmosis method. And if it’s not a mineral that could be found in natural water springs/ rivers/ icebergs, then I dont think they should add it to the water either.
Fluoride and Chlorine
Here’s some scary shit to also take in to consideration:
Pharmaceuticals In Our Water Supplies
Are “Drugged Waters” a Water Quality Threat?
Developed to promote human health and well being, certain pharmaceuticals are now attracting attention as a potentially new class of water pollutants. Such drugs as antibiotics, anti-depressants, birth control pills, seizure medication, cancer treatments, pain killers, tranquilizers and cholesterol-lowering compounds have been detected in varied water sources.
Where do they come from? Pharmaceutical industries, hospitals and other medical facilities are obvious sources, but households also contribute a significant share. People often dispose of unused medicines by flushing them down toilets, and human excreta can contain varied incompletely metabolized medicines. These drugs can pass intact through conventional sewage treatment facilities, into waterways, lakes and even aquifers. Further, discarded pharmaceuticals often end up at dumps and land fills, posing a threat to underlying groundwater.
To some scientists the release of antibiotics into waterways is particularly worrisome. They fear the release may result in disease-causing bacteria to become immune to treatment and that drug-resistant diseases will develop.
I think everyone should have access to clean water that has been minimally processed (ie add chlorine, add fluoride) there are other methods of water filtration and purification that dont include continuously dumping in toxic chemicals.
