At least when I hit the bottle, there's Scotch in it!

Is anyone out there still entranced by the myth of bottle water? Do you still believe the water to be crisp and pure and, dare I say it?, healthy?

Then, perhaps, you should read this article. Here's a quote:

Further, while EPA rules specify that no confirmed E. coli or fecal coliform (bacteria that indicate possible contamination by fecal matter) contamination is allowed in tap water, the FDA merely set a minimum level for E. coli and fecal coliform presence in bottled water. Tap water from a surface source must be tested for cryptosporidium, giardia and viruses, unlike bottled water, and must also be disinfected, unlike bottled water.

Mind you, with fecal matter in our meat, what's the fuss???
