Bottled Water, Straight From the Tap
We all know bottled water is better for you than plain old yucky tap water. Right?
Well, ask Coca-Cola, who have just admitted that their brand of bottled water, Dasani, is just treated tap water (at least when sold in the UK; the BBC broke the story, and no US journalists have followed up yet to see where American bottlers of Dasani get their water from). The irony is that this probably can’t be taken as a knock on Dasani, mostly because most tap water is of pretty damn high quality — unless you live in the District of Columbia, that is.
