Yes and Not Really: The water portion of it is healthy and fine to drink. The vitamin (or other additive) portion of it is neither healthy nor unhealthy, because it can be obtained in our food or in a daily multivitamin (which covers most of the recommended vitamins); or because it is an additive that is advertised as helpful but may actually be unnecessary and unproven.

Formaldehyde has been found to cause migraines, cancer, heart palpitations, gastrointestinal and neurological problems.
