Bottled water costs 1,000 times more than tap water and is generally considered safer than tap water. However, new research suggests the opposite after scientists found that pricey bottled water is subject to far less stringent testing than tap water.
Researchers found that companies that make bottled water are only required to do monthly testing at source and that bottled water is significantly more likely to be contaminated or become a source of infection, according to a new study.
Scientists explain that tap water contains trace amounts of disinfecting chlorine that can stop the spread of harmful bacterial infections.

In Genesis 6:19-21, it is written:
And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.
Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.
And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.
In Genesis 7:2-3, it is written:
Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
