    I appreciate Paltrow as an actor, but if she sells something, it likely is bogus.
    That list doesn't include "artificial flavors". Obviously it has artificial lemon flavor.
    Small microclusters give you lemon flavor. Larger ones make grapefruit.

    Really small ones taste like tangerine...

    Yeah. I flipped from sweeteners to flavors.

    A quick and easy way to find out if something is a scam is to peruse the aisles at Whole Foods and see if its stocked on their shelves.

    I’m talking about a water filter for a water container, not a bottled water sold in stores.

    Their filter actually adds alkaline metals to the water to make it basic. I was confused by the ‘shrinking’ of water molecules statement (that shouldn’t be possible forget verifiable) as well as why would basic water be better. The science says it isn’t.

    I was surprised this was a think to begin with. I ponder who came up with the idea and how they knew people would buy into it, like a $400 Apple watch.

    Oh wait... nevermind.
