    These quizzes are great, but it's too easy if you make all the answers the same letter! The pointing system works, but cheating doesn't help you learn anything.

    Bottled water is far inferior to tap water. No matter how small the molecular loading, Bisphenol leachinf occurs in plastic. The water in te botle is of course the same, but the chemical leaching the "rides" along is most harmful. Drink TAP water!!!!!!!!!!!!!
