WTF is this ?
“Soft drink giant Coca-Cola has admitted it is selling purified tap water in a bottle.” Didn’t the Trotters try this in ‘Only Fools…” ?
What get’s me is this…we all know that water is H2O. That’s all. Two hydrogen atoms, one oxygen atom. Simple. So ‘pure water’ should be just those atoms should it not ? Anything else included makes the water IMpure. Now without getting into the whole flouride debate, we all accept that what comes out of the tap – or even what comes in a bottle – is NOT pure water as I described above. It’s got other stuff in. Look at a bottle of the stuff, and you will see a composition breakdown. Calcium Carbonate is usually in there. Tap water ? Ring up the company, I’m sure they’ll tell you or send you their latest test results. So it’s not pure. It’s not bad for you, it’s not going to do anything for you in particular, but it is not just some H and some O in the glass / bottle / tap / whatever.
That is, unless you work for Coca-Cola.
“”It’s just that Dasani is as pure as water can get – there are different levels of purity.” Yea, right. So now they are redefining ‘pure’.
“before minerals are added to “enhance the pure taste” – so they are actually making it more IMpure then surely ?
Picture the scene in a Coco-Cola Exec’s house … His 16 year old daughter walks in after a party and says “Hi Dad, I’m still pure, but I’ve just had some minerals added by this guy I met”.
It’s either pure, or it is not.
And if you buy this stuff, at least admit it’s for the convenience and not for any other ‘healthier’ purpose. Oh yes, and you’ve more money than sense too.
