Tiny annoyance number four-thousand and twelve: Campuses (or other such locations) with exclusive Pepsi contracts. Because it means the only bottled water they’ll carry is Aquafina. Which is demineralized water. Which is bad. Or at least I think so, and there are some people who’ll agree.
There are two camps on this: one says that minerals clog up our bodily functions and we should drink demineralized water to avoid them. The other (which I’m more inclined to believe – this is also the side the WHO stands on) says the minerals in water are a part of healthy human function, and drinking demineralized water actually leeches existing minerals out of our bodies without replacing them, leaving us with deficiencies.
Unfortunately, it seems that Aquafina is really dominating the bottled water market these days (it being the only water I can get at work and at school on the days I forget my own bottle to replenish from the interoffice filters and drag around with me), and I don’t like it. Where can a girl get a good ol’ bottle of Evian or other regular spring water these days?
