Not me! No way! I don't drink water any more. I drink dihydrogen oxide. It's much better for you, plus it's organic, too.

Leave it to people to come up with a solution to a problem they don’t have.
PT Barnum would be proud, and laughing his way to the bank of the inanity of things like bottled water and “Organic” food.

Reminds me of a friend who was buying the wonders of “Oxygenated Water” for the health effects of getting more oxygen into your body.
$12 bucks for 3 ounces. Sohhhhh Stoopit!
I told her she could buy club soda for $.50 cents and there’s plenty of O2 in that.

I only drink what comes out of the tap or garden hose.

That's why I drink Brawndo. It has electrolytes.

"Perhaps its the fault of Gatorade, that Technicolor concoction of salt, sugar, and water people guzzle to replenish their electrolytes. "
There's no doubt that Gatorade is overpriced -- but, having low electrolytes is no laughing matter. Electrolyte supplements save millions of 3rd world children, suffering from diarrhea, every year (and millions others die).
I know what that feels like. I once had very low electrolytes; and I truly thought I was dying. When I finally figured out what was happening, I took a couple of packets of electrolyte powder, and recovered very quickly. There are cheaper alternatives to Gatorade -- but, if your electrolytes are low, you do need to replenish them. STAT.
If you wants some serious levels of ions in your water drink pond water.
I’m guessing here a bit, but this marketing stragety is born out of using ion exchange units to clean the water they sell. One problem with deionizers is they tend to make water taste like crap. So water bottlers started added ions back into the water to make it taste normal. At some time they figure this was a good marketing strategy to differentailte their products.

I used to work with a guy long ago (back in the eighties) that sold ionized water products - he sold for a company called Bio-line IIRC. He talked me into trying it, but I never noticed any positive (or negative) affects from it. I just assumed it was a scam and never bought any more. I remember the look my mom gave me - “You paid HOW MUCH for WATER?” Mom knew best, it seems. Nothing is new under the sun.
