University Of Arizona To Study Consumers’ Water Preferences

Editor’s Insight: Does the University of Arizona need $40,000 to understand why people prefer bottled water to tap water? Why doesn’t the TV station reveal who donated this grant? If it’s a public agency, it wasted taxpayer money.

Consumers everywhere have voted with their pocketbooks on bottled water. They prefer the superior taste of bottled water to tap water. University research is not necessary to understand this. 11-28-11 By Elliot Maras
