Water.Water. Everywhere.

AdvantagesVery cheap. Aid to health.

DisadvantagesTaste at times.Boring to some.

" (Before some pedants comment that this opinion should be in the health category, it was after submission to ciao that it be included together with other waters in the beverage category.) .................................................................................... Few of us realise just how important water is in our diet and even less of us will know that a shortage of it can lead to so many health problems. We all get thirsty and have ..." Read review

Water or Coke...



"This was sent to me by e-mail, so I'm not sure just how accurate some of the "facts" in it are, but I thought it might be worth posting anyway... Frankly I'm fairly unlikely to post another "Member Advice on Drinking Water" anyway! WATER 1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half world population.) 2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger. 3. Even MILD dehydration ..." Read review

Hell and High Water

AdvantagesImproved concentration, better skin, higher metabolism, etc etc

DisadvantagesYou have to wade through this op in order to read about the benefits!

"Drinking water isn't the most exciting of things, I admit, but it is vital, and I am trying to encourage you into drinking more of it. I read in a newspaper today that 42% of people in Britain are dehydrated - absolutely shocking, and I'm not being sarcastic! But so what, why is being dehydrated bad for you, I hear you say? Do you want a list?! Oh, go on then... Being dehydrated: • slows down your metabolism, meaning you burn off fat less quickly • ..." Read review

It not only maintains your kidneys at a high standard by flushing them through, but also helps in keeping your ..." Read review

Water way to go.

AdvantagesHelps to keep you healthy.


"As a nurse, I am fully aware of the benefits of drinking plenty of water. And in my own personal experiences, drinking 2 litres a day is the best thing that I ever started doing. Not only does it keep your kidneys in shape (meaning that you won't have to spend years on dialysis as a renal patient!), it also has more beneficial sides to it. It helps to keep you in shape (believe it or not), and also helps to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy. ..." Read review

Member Advice on Drinking Water

AdvantagesYou are now aware

Disadvantagesyou can die of drinking impure water

"If you think of your health, the first thing you should know is that what goes into your stomach should be the very first thing to care of. Especially drinking water. There are a good number of diseases you can get from drinking impure water like what the people of Zimbabwe are facing today from the Cholera epidemic because there's lack of good water and it really kills. If you are not able to buy bottled water, try boiling water in your home and ..." Read review
