on Toxic Water?
@jacob: Americans are over medicated as it is. The last thing we need is to start "introducing very tiny amounts" of other medications. Our water should be WATER, plain and simple. It should not be a cocktail of drugs including Prozac and Aspirin. Prozac has side affects such as; headache, insomnia, and nausea which can cause sufferers to misinterpret symptoms of anxiety or other conditions and cause anxiety to be exacerbated.
EXERCISE is the most powerful medicine know to man.
At LEAST 68% of adults in America (20 years and older) are obese or overweight. I'm proud to be in the 32% although it is VERY hard work in this culture. (years ago I was 60lbs heavier)
The conditions you spoke of can be avoided or cured by exercise. The answer is NOT medication. The drugs you mentioned will only cause dependency amongst the population.
Did you know that if you exercise, eat well, and are a slim person, you have avoided 3/4 of the most common cancers? Add green tea and we could be nearly invincible :)
PS Don't get me started about the disaster that bottled water is. It's a totally F%$#ed up industry!!
