Latest bizarre Silicon Valley $60 'raw water' trend could quickly turn deadly

Quote:
When food-safety expert Bill Marler saw The New York Times' trend piece on Silicon Valley's recent obsession with raw water, he thought he was reading a headline from The Onion.

According to The Times, demand for unfiltered water is skyrocketing as tech-industry insiders develop a taste for water that hasn't been treated, to prevent the spread of bacteria or other contaminants.

In San Francisco, "unfiltered, untreated, unsterilized spring water" is selling for as much as $60.99 for a 2.5 gallon jug. Startups dedicated to untreated water are popping up. People including startup Juicero's cofounder Doug Evans are gathering gallons of untreated water from natural springs to bring to Burning Man.

I’ve been hooked on the stuff for years, but I call it ‘well water’.

I'd rather die from natural bacteria than from the liberal government poisoning the water like they did in Flint.

Crazy their paying $60 for it. I guess living in such a liberal state the government has a monopoly on water.

Been reading about this Doug Evans. Quite a con man - excuse me - socially-conscious entrepreneur. Sounds like he made a killing on that Juicero, and he's doing the same with this super water, plus selling decorative "orbs", aka high-priced jugs, that really make a statement.
