Is there really a difference in water?!

Question: Is there really a difference in water!?
spring, purified, filtered, tap i mean all water taste the same right!? If not then what is the best water!?!?!?!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

It is all different!.

Tap water is given minimal treatment to make it safe!. But since most of it is not consumed then treating it further would not be economical or reasonable!.

Filtered water is a basic process where a filter just removes a few more basic things!. It only improves taste and odor of water!. No other health concerns are usually fixed with these basic filters!. Pur and Britta fall into this catagory!.

Purified water addresses many health concerns!. Some are a little better than filters some are extremely better!. This can be from a multi stage filtration system to a distillery!.

Spring water comes from a spring rather than from a tap!. Some is filtered, some is purified, and some has nothing done to it!.

The best water is purified!. Look for it if you buy bottled water!. The best two are Aquafina and Deer Park!. They both have impressive purification systems!. The best home system is called eSpring!. It is the highest rated system available and only a distillery can get water cleaner!. It has been used on Extreme Makeover Home Edition and has won top awards or gotten top ratings from Consumer Reports, the NSF and the WQA!.

The system costs more than a basic filter but it lasts all year!. By year two it is cheaper per gallon than Britta and Pur is!. It isn't available in stores but I can get them if needed!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Distilled water is the best because it actually has no impurities in it!. Spring water comes from the spring that they say it comes from but still via tap water, think about it water companies are not going to simply dip a bottle in some untouched spring as they say!. Drinking water is just tap water from wherever!. Some people think spring water is best because it can have certain minerals in it, if you need those minerals which is doubtful then you should be taking a vitamin pill!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

According to Paul Harvey!.!.!.!.he personally did a test of 103 types of water!.!.!.

Research involving 103 different brands of bottled water reveals that 1/3 of them are no more pure, no more healthful than the water out of our kitchen faucets!. So Congress is now contemplating what, more strict labeling standards!?

Further more!.!.!.I read this too!.!.!.

Glug, glug, glug--that’s the sound a ginormous number of us make as we sip bottled water in our cars, at the gym, behind our desks!.
The sound you DON’T hear is the thwack of 60 million bottles a day being tossed into U!.S!. landfills, where they can take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade!.
If that’s not enough to turn your conscience a brighter shade of green, add this: Producing those bottles burns through 1!.5 million barrels of crude oil annually--enough fuel to keep 100,000 cars running for a year!. Recycling helps but reusing is even better!. Invest in a couple of portable, dishwasher-safe, stainless steel bottles like Klean Kanteens that won’t leach nasty chemicals into your water!.(Don’t get into the habit of refilling the water bottle you just emptied; the polyethylene terephthalate it’s made of breaks down with multiple usings!.)
1!. Tap water is tested daily
Under the Safe Drinking Water Act, water suppliers are required to provide an annual report on the quality of your local water and to test tap water daily!. By comparison, the FDA examines bottled water only weekly, and consumers can’t get the agency’s results!. You can easily get the lowdown on your state’s drinking water quality at http://www!.epa!.gov/safewater/dwinfo/inde!.!.!.
2!. Tap water is a bargain
Bottled water costs about 500 times more than tap!. If you’re into really fancy labels, up to 1,000 times more!.
3!. Tap water is a tooth saver
It has more fluoride than bottled water, which helps prevent tooth decay!.(Yes, you never outgrow your need for fluoride!.)
4!. Tap water is often tasty
Some places (New York City for one) have delicious water, but if you don’t love the flavor of yours, the solution is simple: Run your tap water through a Brita or Pur filter to remove most tastes and odors!. The average home filter goes for $8!.99 and produces the equivalent of 300 large (16!.9 ounce) bottles of water!. That’s about $0!.03 cents a bottle, versus the $1!.25 or so you’d pay in a market!.
One last thing: Don't just think about making this switch; actually do it!. Today!. It does the world and you good!. Plus, allowing nagging, unfinished tasks (known as NUTs) to go undone can make your RealAge 8 years older!

sorry but there is to many cheimicals added to water now a days!. The Health Authorities are adding to the water all the time
Flouride makes your body absorb aluminum!. The aluminum then goes to your brain in turn you get what is called now Alzheimer's Disease!. Just like cigs!. They are putting chemical in everything!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Some tap water is really nasty!. As far as bottled water, I don't like Nestle or AquaFina!. I do like Dasini, Deer Park and some others!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

i think filtered is the best water because it gets all the bad stuff out and the others don't!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

i personally like dasani they put a couple minerals in there so it tastes alot better!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Spring water is the best!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
