Good morning from deep freeze NH. As you can see from the photo that trying to keep warm and in front of the stove. Is your tap water killing you? Our tap water is safe as they say.But was wondering if tap water is killing me? I drink a lot of water.I was thinking could this be the cause of my stomach problem? So I switch to bottled water to see if this make any difference? Well it did not.Which I was sort of surprised by this. We are still working on this. How is your tap water there? photo mine

I already have cancer, so tap water isn't going to kill me any faster than the cancer will! I do drink filtered water, however.

@amadeo I was dx'ed in 2012. It's stage 4, no cure, no chemo, no remission. The way that I look at it...we are all LIVING with something, I just happen to live with stage 4 cancer, I'm not dying from it.. Some live with other ailments/illnesses/attitudes. I'm glad that I'm not living with stupidity! *laughs*

I think our tap water is safe. It is Lake Michigan water. We develop allergies to things were not allergic to when younger because we had stronger immune systems. I wonder if dairy or another food is causing a problem for you?

When I lived in the city - there was a special water filter at my residence - so I felt safer drinking the tap water. There is no filter at my home here in the country, so I boil the tap water before drinking it.

We have safe tap water. I have heard recently that too much water will give you stomach problems including heart burn. So that is something to consider speaking with your doctor about.

I did the same thing, switched to bottled water and didn't have any changes. Our tap water seems to be good, it's city water of course. Mom and Dad always had well water in this home, but the well point went bad. We had to hook up with city water, about four years ago.

Yes, this water is lime water, you know if any droplets are left behind its white spot when it dried and it cruds up the facets after a while with a white scale.

@amadeo it has always been in the water. I assume for disinfectant.....maybe it is chlorine. I should ask the water company.

Our tap water is safe and delicious at home. We drink filtered water and bottled water in Florida. I've read that too much water is as bad as too little.

@amadeo It's worth a shot. I hope it helps. Water is good for us, but not too much. I drink about 4 to 5 glasses a day, sometimes less, sometimes more. I never force myself to drink it. A gentleman here drinks a cup of hot water first thing every morning. I drink a 10-12 ounce glass of water first thing every morning to replenish the organs after sleeping, before I even think of coffee. If your stomach still hurts, let your physician know immediately.
