#2 But, but. These are people who embrace "science." They understand water chemistry much more thoroughly than any "denier..."

#5 Yet people who drink well water generally have fewer diseases than those who live on city water; the presence of some microbes grants some immunities... works until you have a major bad bug like diphtheria.. Like that German fella said "That which does not kill us makes us stronger."

#6 "It's a no-brainer," said Lee Sayer, a musician in San Francisco and anti-fluoride activist who has been drinking raw water for months. "You have water that's processed through the earth through natural processes ‐ it's cleaned. And being that water has memory, it has a memory of tumbling through the rocks. It has micronutrients and I believe it's alive."

The first bolded statement was spot-on, for reasons unclear to the "musician"

#7 #5 cont'd - that being said, paying $8+ a gallon, even for "free-range, artisanal water" is just plain stupid...

Some of them may not kill you, but they will make you poop your ass off.

I only drink only Brawndo. It has electrolytes.

#12 #5 Yet people who drink well water generally have fewer diseases than those who live on city water;
Correlation does not imply causation. It takes a critical number of people, about 40,000 living together, for a disease to become a constant presence. Anti-Vaxxer's drinking untreated water are throwbacks to the Dark Ages.

#15 Umm, I've got my own well no additives or nothing. Anyone want to offer me $X where X is > $10 per gallon?

filtered through rocks and everything

And I'm sure it's at least as smart as that Oregon water at remembering tumbling over rocks.
