    Tap water?

    Tv food programme covered this. They said bottled mineral water is good if your local tap water is low in specific minerals you need, but generally tap water is best. Filtered water taste better for some but there are no minerals in. I drink tap water but new houses with the plastic pipes makes the water taste bad to me.

    depends on how much you want to spend. I drink filtered tap water as bottled would cost me too much the amount I drink.

    I drink bottled spring water as I have a Thyroid problem and not supposed to drink tap water as it has fluoride in it.

    do you drink tea?

    Try a berkey water filter for the tap water, expensive but last years!

    Something with H2O in would be good.

    Corporation pop for me.

    Tap water kept in fridge filtered through a Breville. Delicious.

    Depends where you live. I won't drink tap water in some parts of London because the taste is disgusting.

    I know there are several studies that have shown incidences of Hypothyroid problems and several showing incidences of Hyperthyroid problems and several showing no link to Thyroid function. Its seems that mainstream thinking is that the benefits of fluoride far out weigh the negatives, I was Hyper for several years and after radio iodine treatment I have been hypo for several years now. I was never advised not to drink tap water by any of the consultants i have seen, I was advised to avoid iodine rich foods when I was hyper (due to thyroid toxicity) bit that was all.

    exactly, cup of tea contains more fluoride than several liters of tap water

    Unless your a conspiracy nut who thinks the government is trying to kill us with tap water and chemtrails then just stick with that. If you do want bottled water for the convenience then get the cheapest with a decent bottle you can find.
    Its not perfect but neither are any of the alternatives.

    perhaps but noone said they drunk tea
    so no need to shoehorn in that little nugget in a desperate attempt to seem smart

    Depends on your taste preference. None is better than another.

    If you are willing to invest then you can have a borehole drilled in your garden and use your own mini filtration system. Some of the best water I've tasted came directly from springs but these were abroad and in mountainous. areas. Personally I trust tap water over bottled in the UK.

    do you drink tea?


    No don't drink tea but drink 1 coffee a day with spring water.

    you clearly missed the point of my question. I was insinuating that a single cup of tea contain more fluoride than several glasses of tap water. saying that fluoride is bad or you need some special water because of specific medical condition is just plain stupid and waste of money. there is no good quality evidence suggesting that levels of fluoride in water are harmful (quite the opposite).
    But if people are gullible and willing to spend money on useless crap, who am I to stop.
    If I dont like the taste of water I buy sugar free squash

    You do realise there is a massive infrastructure behind it don't you?

    I didn't know tea had fluoride in it thanks

    I moved from Peterborough (you pretty much had to chew the water there) to Leeds a few years ago and the difference in tap water is unbelievable. Yorkshire tap water I drink by the stein!

    I used to be chooses with my water but after living in a poor country for a month, it made me value my tap water.

    Then why are you willing to pay 1000 times the price for bottled water? oO

    You know what people I might just have different types of water tested by experts and take it from there.

    Think you're seing the wrong type of Doc' X)

    I used to work for a Water company, used to meet all the lab people and had plenty of chance to ask these sort of questions. Basic answer is mineral water is pointless and leaving filtered water in your fridge overnight is not really healthy.
    So drink the cheapest water you like but for coffee tap water is as good as any other because the harm the coffee is doing to you outweighs any gain any type of mineral will give you in water.

    BTW where do you live, because if it's Staffordshire the water is supplied 80% by underground springs, wells to you :-)
