    Really irresponsible segment. I can’t believe Madelyn Fernstrom didn’t address BPAs in bottled water. The science is well established by the CDC and there is actually an alarming amount of scientific evidence that BPA may be highly toxic.
    To mention that water is regulated by the FDA is only half the story, and suggests that it is safe. What about the toxic chemicals that leach into the water from the plastic bottle???
    I think this warrants some research by your staff and its own segment – unless of course you are more concerned about angering sponsors than getting the facts out to consumers.

      Gloria, you raise some interesting points. The FDA hasn’t always done the most thorough job in its regulation and enforcement, and the quality of tap water varies depending on state and local regulations.

      Though the Recapo team isn’t associated with the shows we cover on the site, I agree that the Today Show could take a closer look at our water supply. Thanks for reading!

    Madelyn Fernstrom said that filters don’t get rid of the bacteria that could be in water, but some filters do get rid of them. There are filters that filter down to .02 Microns and bacteria is from 1-8 microns.
