From Michigan, USA:

At 5 feet, 4 inches and 117 pounds, our 11-year-old son is an outstanding athlete and an "A" student. He played football for the first time this year. He was the youngest on the team, but was relied on the most to win. He also has played basketball for three years and is the lead player for his team. We are very proud of our son. My question is about hydration. Would reverse osmosis water be as good as mineral water (spring water)?


In reality, despite what many may think, there is no difference in whatever water you use. If you live in a city that has a reliable water system, save some money and drink tap water! Don't believe everything you may read about any health benefits on an expensive bottle of water.
