    In the past...not today in the modern Westernized world. There are still people in the world without access to clean drinking water, though. There are charities devoted to it.

    well, sure, i know that.
    but it slipped my mind that that would have given us natural aversion to drinking water.

    Damiana is right - Beer was the primary drink -watered down - but that's what everyone drank because it was safe. Water was sketchy.

    Hi Cookie, I know what you're saying because I don't really care for straight tap water either. A home seltzer maker can be a real help here. I mostly drink it plain & chilled but often add an ounce or two of fruit juice...instant fruit soda! Also there's a lot to be said for trusting your own thirst (or lack thereof) instead of blindly following the "8 glasses a day" mantra.

    Is there a resource that grades the tap water in specific cities? Anyone know how the water is in Newark, NJ? Is there any point in using a filter? I've read that grocery store filters add more to the water than they take away.

    Not to mention the drinking pits/rivers were usually occupied by larger animals.
    I don't think Grok drank that much.

    Drinking water is very important to our human body because it is very good for health and the person make perfect and fresh who drinking water more and more, i also used drinking water more and more and my health is very good and perfect i always sharp.

    And let's not forget coffee. The myths are untrue. It is effective to hydrate with coffee, providing it's free of mycotoxins.

    Primarily because you had to boil the water to make the beer which sterilized the water but they didn't make the connection. The Chinese discovered tea to be safer than water for the same reason, but didn't make the connection for years.
