Does the type of water you drink really affect your health?


Even drinking water has evolved. I see distilled, purified, deionized and alkaline water. Do they really make a difference in one's health or are they just another ploy to get consumers to buy?

    I'm pretty sure our water here is clean. But the problem is the pipes that they run through. Some are too old and some may have cracks. That's A risk I won't take.

    I agree. The only time I buy bottled water is for emergency purposes..like a natural disaster : hurricane which may affect the ability to get water from the tap. I use a filter for tap water and don't need to change as the manufacturer claims!
