i started this discussion because,my parents always ask me to drink hot water(cooled)..because they say that cold water may contain germs.. but i cannot drink hot water because,when heated the original taste of water is gone and it is tasting like something.. i always drink cold water(except when i get fever,they wont let me to drink at that time).. so tell me what do you drink?hot water or cold water??

I vote for Cold water as I agree heated water loses its taste. My parents always accepted my tastes

My fiance and I have a filter on our icemaker which is attached to our refrigerator / freezer combo. I know that some countries don't have the luxury of clean water like we do, so I know that hot water is supposed to be healthier as it distinguishes the germs. Have you thought of using ice cubes? I would think that water frozen would also be less dangerous. I hope for the best for you! Have a wonderful and lovely day!

I always like to take direct from my tapped water and put a bunch of ice cube in my glass and enjoyed drinking my cold water of the day.......I cannot manage to drink hot or warm water because of the taste.

Hello,Sri! Actually worm water is good for our health.but most people,including me,don't like to drink hot water as the water losses its original taste.I collect the filter water in bottles and keep in the fridge for use during the day.but drinking cold water is not good for health,specially for the older people.thanx.

I drink boiled water that has been cooled. I actually prefer warm water, so what I do is mix some boiled water with cooled boiled water. I can't seem to be able to drink cold water. I would add some syrup in that case.

We have a filter on our kitchen sink. So I don't think about it. I go to the sink turn on the cold, and get some water. easy as 1-2-3. A boil order would have me using hot and cooling it though.
