Bottled Water More Popular With Minorities

Is bottled water better for you? The experts say bottled water is no safer than tap water, but a new survey suggests that minorities are not getting the message.

According to CBS News, the survey was based on responses from  632 parents who visited a hospital emergency department in Milwaukee-showed that Black and Hispanic children are three times more likely to drink bottled water than their white counterparts.  They asked the parents why they gave their kids bottled water.  The parents said they thought bottled water was safer, cleaner, better-tasting or more convenient. 

But the experts say most bottled water is just purified tap water with no real advantage. Unlike tap water, bottled water may not contain significant quantities of fluoride, which helps prevent tooth  decay.  The bottom line—the verdict doesn’t look good for bottled water.
