Is city water bad for you?!

Question: Is city water bad for you!?
i usually drink bottled water, but sometimes i am just really thirsty and sink water is all i have at hand!.!. it stinks like chlorine and doesn't taste very good, and i sometimes get an upset stomach if i drink much of it!. but other people drink their water!.
so is it bad for me!? Www@FoodAQ@Com

No, its just fine, it has to pass tests to be safe you know!. Buy a water filter or your faucet or let it sit out for a few hours, that will get rid of the chlorine taste!. If it is filtered, it will taste better than your bottled water because it still has minerals in it that make water taste good!. Bottled water tastes flat!. I use a water filter!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Here in Canada, municipal water standards are very high!. Tap water is perfectly safe and healthy!.

Personally, I don't get the bottled water thing!. That stuff doesn't taste like anything and it is way more costly than what comes out of the tap!.

When I was a kid (40+ years ago), my grandmother lived in a small town and did not have running water!. The town was serviced by a municipal well!. You've never tasted water so delicious and refreshing in your life! Www@FoodAQ@Com

No joke, the bottled water companies do have high standards for their water but public water distributors really have much, much higher requirements because its inspected by federal and state workers!. My father-in-law is one!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

at times yes!.!.!.!.get a filter to clean it out first!.!.!.!.sometimes small pieces of metal are found in it, and the city has to constantly clean it!.!.!.smh its a shame sometime manWww@FoodAQ@Com

If you knew what was in municipal water you wouldn't even want to shower in itWww@FoodAQ@Com

Yes, in general, but filter it first if you want to be safe!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
