Decaf coffee; that process is full of poisons. Probably no calorie drinks too.

Possibly. Whether your water is poison depends on a variety of factors, including:
-the types/natures of industry that are adding pollutants to it
-naturally present additives that the earth is adding to it (probably ok, but who knows)
-what kind of pipes you use to pull the water from the ground and deliver it to your house (are they food-safe? are they from before circa 1970?)
-in the city, what the city has added to it and what the city has failed to take out of the retreated sewage that they serve to residents as clean water
- oh, and what you and your neighbors are dumping on your lawns (fertilizer, bug poison, etc. - does not go away, and does not get completely filtered out by sand and rock, and ends up, years later, straight in the water source).

I second that, on no-cal drinks. All artificially "sugarfree" products (gum, drinks, colas, etc.) are deadly killers, containing chemical sweeteners that your body can neither digest nor entirely eliminate, contributing to obesity and a variety of physical disorders that we are only just beginning to understand.

We built the house in 1997, we are in a rural area. Our city water had been tested, and arsenic was found (apparently a 'safe' amount). I will take my chances.

Ah, but that dude was right in the end, wasn't he? I don't remember. But 999 people can say I'm wrong about 99% of this stuff, but again, future scientists will agree with me, and will be shocked at how little we knew back in the early 2000s.
I'm not going to argue whether you're right or wrong. I do agree with others who are alluding to the fact that you appear definitely paranoid tho. We all die someday and life's too short to waste it looking over my shoulder and worrying about everything. How about you start a thread about the good stuff in your life instead of another one about all the horrors?

All. City. Water.

The life cycle of city water: flush, down the drain, straight to the sewar treatment plant. Treat it to remove solid particles, treat it again, treat it again, treat it again. Add chemicals. Test it occasionally. Send it back up to the showers, faucets, and sinks.

I think people would not be able to drink it at all if they really focused on the fact that it was in a toilet a few weeks ago.

Well, I don't go complain about all the boring golfing threads, and I do invite all non-OCD and non-paranoid types to feel free not to post or read anything further in this thread.

The quirks and peeves thread were both good things for me. They have helped me understand myself and find several BOL'ers who are so similar to me that I feel much better about these things.

Everything is poison at the right dosage. But then again, so is fear.

Somewhere in the middle
Not sure where you are, but our DRINKING water (Whater in our showeres, toilets and sinks) comes from a well (Actually 9 wells) that is feed by the Muskingum Valley water shed / Aquifer.

The water in the WASTE TREATEMETN Plant gets "cleaned" and put back into the river. Not back up the pipes to my house.

When I go back to Ohio, I always enjoy drinking the well water. And hanging my clothes on the line to dry.

True. However, I don't think it is fear, in my case. It's a logical/rational decision based on evidence. Or in some cases, based on lack of evidence (e.g., lack of evidence that full-body scanners do not cause harm). I'm not "afraid" of margarine. I just don't want it because I have determined that avoiding it is in the best interest of my health and that of my family.

I think it all goes back in the drinking supply eventually, even if a river or reservoir is one of the phases of the process.

well, i certainly find that debatable. because to use your theory on water, as an example...

everything is made with water, all water comes at some point from the ground, that has been saturated with chemicals, so, in essence, we're all going to die if we ingest or use anything that was created by water...

i suppose since you no longer are eating or drinking, you will have the healthiest dead body ever...good luck with that. eek

The air circulating in airplanes I hear is bad. The longer the trip the worse it must be. And then the guy behind me uses the knee defender!

Comply I have a friend with similar concerns to you. He also spends all day worrying about every content in every item of food consumed. The funny thing is, he is always sick with something.

I found that very odd. But last year I came across a landmark study involving antioxidants and free radicals which I will try to find for you. The study is considered to be a benchmark because the sample size was so large. The study concluded that people who had high antioxidants and did not expose themselves to free radicals were much sicker and died earlier than those that did not. They noticed that people who avoided free radicals had a condition in which their body did not produce their own antioxidants. Thus making them much more vulnerable. While people who had constant exposure to free radicals produced their own antioxidants without the need for external antioxidants. IE the body defended itself in the way it was designed to be defended.

Just this year my friend (the one I described above) found out from his doctor that he was about to become diabetic (at the age of 37).

So are germs "free radicals"?

Who made them free? And why are they radical?

Here is a summary of that study but I am having a hard time finding the study now.

I remember them, like Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin and the other Yippies. (That should send the youngters to google.)
