Save On Gas, Drink From The Tap.

From the New Atlantis (7th item):

"Bottled water has for some time been criticized by the American Dental Association because of its lack of fluoride. Now there is reason to believe that bottled water is bad for the environment, too. According to a recent study by the Earth Policy Institute, more than 1.5 million barrels of crude oil are used to produce plastic bottles for water in the U.S. alone each year—enough oil to fuel perhaps 100,000 cars for a year. The transportation of bottled water, far less efficient than the distribution of tap water, expends even more oil. The vast majority of the bottles that hold all the water—almost 7 billion gallons each year in the U.S. alone—turn into garbage. And the concentrated extraction of water near bottling plants has reportedly caused water shortages in some regions, like Texas and the Great Lakes, which can affect farmers and fishers."

Actually, if fluoride chemicals were removed from public water supplies, less people would be drinking bottled water.

Silicofluorides, untested and impure waste products of phosphate fertilizer manufacturing, are the fluoride chemicals most used to fluoridate public water supplies. Silicofluorides are linked to children's higher blood lead levels. And higher blood lead levels are linked, among many ill health effects, to higher rates of tooth decay. This is one of the reasons that dental health crises are occurring in most, if not all, of our large U.S. fluoridated cities.

If you care about the environment and your health, you'll lobby legislators to stop fluoridating the water.

Besides, fluoride is neither a nutrient nor essential for healthy teeth.

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel Saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved. Search engine optimization, Try to Be happy
