GMA: Water Taste Test – ABC News

The booming sales of bottled water suggest that a lot of people think bottled water is better for them than tap water.

But a recent study from the Switzerland-based World Wildlife Fund International may be throwing some water on that belief. The study finds bottled water is no safer or healthier than what you get when you turn on your kitchen faucet.

But does the expensive stuff at least taste better? Good Morning America’s

studio audience didn’t think so. In fact, in a taste test administered by Olympic medalist and GMA contributor Dara Torres, the audience picked tap water

as the clear favorite.

In any case, the report notes that the bottled water industry uses 1.5 million tons of plastic annually to package the water, and the manufacture and disposal of the plastic sends toxic chemicals into the environment.
