Is Bottled Water Any Better Than Tap Water?

Chemicals, schemicals.... the reason I (and most people I know) drink bottled water is because it TASTES better than tap water. It also tastes better than filtered tap water, which I have tried to like many, many times. If I couldn't get bottled water I would probably drink more sugary drinks like soda or juice instead, which wouldn't be nearly as good for me. Some cities do have good-tasting tap water, but I don't live in one of them. I deal with my "environmental impact," which I do care about, by having water delivered to my home instead of buying the individual bottle packs. And I use a stainless steel bottle for "portable" water. I agree with the guest --there are a lot more plastic-packaged products in our cupboards that clog up our landfills AND make us fatter and less healthy. So why all the picking on bottled water?
