July 24th, 2008 - 5:47 pm ICT by ANI  

London, July 24 (ANI): A new study conducted on bottled and tap water revealed that half of all Brits could not discern the difference between the two.

The survey further revealed that one in five people said they prefer the flavour of tap supplies.

A massive 84 per cent surveyed by a consumer group think tap water is better for the environment.

The group says it costs 0.22p a litre compared with 31p for Evian mineral, 141 times cheaper.

Nearly a quarter said they drink less bottled water than a year ago. Sales fell nine per cent, the Sun quoted a spokesman as saying.

Brits spent 1.68billion pounds on 2.3billion litres of bottled water in 2006.

Brits have a billion headaches a year, 20 per cent up in a decade due to PC use, but 245million are hangovers, says a study. (ANI)
