The soft drink giant Pepsi has been forced to make an embarrassing admission: Its bestselling Aquafina bottled water is nothing more than tap water. Last week, Pepsi agreed to change the labels of Aquafina to indicate the water comes from a public water source. Pepsi agreed to change its label under pressure from the advocacy group Corporate Accountability International, which has been leading an increasingly successful campaign against bottled water.

Not every water treatment facility uses Flouride in their water and Flouride in such small amounts has minimal effects to people, and with flouride peoples teeth keep looking good and stay hard.
The fluoridation of public water is something that has been highly debated for decades -- and yet the practice continues today, despite the growing body of evidence showing that fluoridation causes untold human suffering and disease. Some of the research presented at the conference showed, for example, that fluoridation damages the brain, increases levels of lead in children's blood and therefore leads to behavioral disorders and brain damage. It also showed that humans are accumulating fluoride in their bones, that fluoride's toxicity is systemic in the human body, and that the current safe drinking water standards for fluoride were fraudulently authored by officials at the Environmental Protection Agency who were pressured.
I have taken to drinking distilled water to avoid the chlorine and fluorine in my city's water. There is evidence that drinking chlorine treated water can lead to the thyroid gland having iodine displaced, causing a potential iodine deficiency and possible health risks associated by the lower iodine levels in the thyroid and upsetting the autoimmune system.

I also thought everyone already knew this. I've heard this for years. I drink both Aquafina and Dasini bottled water all the time knowing it's filtered tap water. The reason is I have a well with seriously crappy water.
