Hare Krishna Prabhuji, Your articles on cows are very inspiring. In one of your article you had advised us to avoid the usage of bottled water or reverse osmosis water. However, one of the acquaintance, I came across did not agree to this point.

He proved it by showing a meter which indicates the level of contamination of the water. Meter shows that purified water has 30ppm salts whereas ground water has 900ppm salts.
