Is organic food worth the price? What about filtered water? Just hype?

Is organic food worth the price? What about filtered water? Just hype?

Maybe: Organic food, if truly organic (no pesticides, no fertilizers, compost only for the soil) may have slightly less toxins but regulation is poor in this arena and some organic foods have higher bacterial counts and debris like insect body parts, etc. Most municipal water is pure while bottled water is not standardized and probably is municipal water anyway. Filtering just removes solids, not toxins. ...Read more

What is " triple filtered water" in the ingredients label? Does anyone know? Thanks.

Marketing hokum: P. T. Barnum said you would never get poor on under estimating the gullibility of the American public. Above is another example of same. A good water filtration system will purify the drinking water for you. That that particular system uses three sets of filters presumably of different sizes to do the job is fine.
