The weight will come off slower, but you won't have heart trouble to deal with. ...Read more

Fiji natural artesian water...Good or bad?

Neutral: Bottled water is convenient to carry around. But the health benefits are not exactly confirmed. In a number of cases, the municipal water is purer than the bottled water. And in some cases the bottled water contains arsenic and lead. There is no agency supervision of this and much bottled water is just tap water anyway.
