Re: What kind of water do you drink?

There are combined filters which can solve problem mentioned by Jamie. One part is active carbon to filter large impurities and second one is UV lamp to kill viruses and bacteria. It is on market long enough (more than 10 years), so you should have enough to choose from.

Re: What kind of water do you drink?

Luckily I live in area, with high quality tap water. But the topic is very interesting.

Distilled water should be safe given person is getting enough minerals by other means (food, supplements).

Re: Why is it unethical to use leather derived from animals who are not killed for leather?

A key question here would be whether the meat industry gets money for leather, or whether it gives it away. If the meat industry gets NO money at all for the leather, then it is fair to say that using the leather doesn't cause suffering directly (except a little bit in the type of way Jebus mention...
