[IP] Bottled water/Spring Water

>advocate spring water...know it costs more, but it's instead of SODA!

I don't want to start a fight here about this since its not directly
diabetes related, but in the interests of being well-informed consumers...
If you want to drink bottled water, know that you may not be getting what
you think you are getting. Since the source for many cities' water
supplies is a "spring", companies can directly bottle tap water from that
city and then re-sell it as "Spring Water". Terms like "pure", "healthy", 
and "natural" have no legal meaning and are just another means of
advertising. The bottled water industry is no less capitalistic than the 
soda industry! If your city's water supply is not bad in terms of
chlorine, nitrates, whatever, you may actually be getting worse water from
the bottles than from your tap.
