Well, that's reassuring

by VM Brasseur on July 22nd, 2007

On the way home from the gym today I dropped by the store. One of the things I picked up was a bottle of peach-flavored O Water. It’s sitting here next to me as I try to get some work done and my eyes were drawn to what is printed on the bottle:

  • NO Sugar
  • NO Sweeteners
  • NO Arsenic
  • NO Bromate
  • NO Nitrates
  • NO Cholrine

Excuse me? “NO Arsenic?” What the hell? I’d like to think that pointing out a lack of arsenic in the food I buy to be about as useful as pointing out that it doesn’t contain a Chevrolet.

I mean, really people. That is just silly.

    This comment contains no information about Potter’s name Harry.

    This is likely because of the Bush & Arsenic thing from when he first became the current occupant.

    The short summary is he reversed a EPA mandate that required no more than 10 Part Per Billion of arsenic in your water, back to an older standard that limited it to no more than 50 ppb.

    For a more information on this you can read more here:

    Harry Potter dies from arsenic poisoning on page 50!
