    I work in the municipal water treatment industry. What we call “raw water” smells like fish and it can give you hepatitis and cholera. It’s green because it has algae in it.

    “The government puts fluoride in the water to prevent tooth decay.” I stop listening to anyone who says this, because I have yet to meet anyone whom keeps their jaw closed to filter the water through their teeth when they drink.

    I'm actually shocked that this is even legal to sell, seems like the FDA should step in. Imagine what would happen if Dasani just sold untreated water from a random spring in the woods.

    Dr Nestle???...the Nestle family has a horrific relationship with fluoride poisoning (truly manufacturing waste)...look up Nestle stealing community water or decades convincing impoverished countries nto to nurse their babies and buy formula....All for science, but from that line of human's...Hell no!

    I once drank from a mountain stream. I'd been told by a Girl Scout troop we'd met while hiking that the stream was safe to drink from because it had water striders walking on top of it. I now realize that I'd been playing Russian roulette with my health.

    Getting sick from "raw water " is the reason China and Asia in general drink tea and Europe and Britain drink beer and wine. Fermentation and boiling water for tea made drinking safe, otherwise you could die. Ancient peoples didn't drink raw water if they could help it. I'll take mine cooked, thank you.

    These white people are coming up with trends that people all over the world were already doing. It's funny how they like to profit off of another culture. I'm born and raised in Ocho Rios Jamaica and I can tell you that we have been doing this water thing for many years.

    Raw water can and almost always carries all kinds of nasty surprises like giardia, if you every have it you will never want it again. There are some that are life threatening like cholera and typhoid fever. Also don't forget that those cute little forest animals go to the bathroom somewhere which always ends up in the creek or spring. This guy reminds me of Mordecai Jones the flim flam man. Only an idiot would follow this nut job.
