I think the Dasani water engineered by NASA and in a metal can is strangely addictive.

I think the Dasani water engineered by NASA and in a metal can is strangely addictive.

There is something different about Dasani

Yes, there's something different about Dasani alright.

There are three ingredients that make it the absolute worst bottled water you could possibly drink, but let's just talk about one of them - potassium chloride. Ever heard of death row? The final of the three injections is potassium chloride, which causes cardiac arrest. And people are drinking it in amounts far greater than standard bottled waters in Dasani.

If you value your health and drink Dasani Water, you should seriously consider stopping.

I'll wager the concentration is way different in the lethal injection case. Potassium chloride is even used as a medication for low potassium.

Interesting. I've often thought the same thing. There is something different about Dasani

Unfortunately, like mercury, potassium chloride accumulates in the bloodstream,

I highly doubt that happens in a significant way. Regulating salts is part of what the kidneys do. Sodium chloride is bad for the heart, too, but it isn't considered a poison.

It's also worth noting that Dasani is considered plain water and not even mineral water. The concentrations of the minerals it has are so low as to be medically insignificant or it would be pulled off of the shelves.

Excellent point. However, there is also less mercury in a tuna fish than in concentrated industrial spillage. Unfortunately, like mercury, potassium chloride accumulates in the bloodstream, and as a result, consistently ingesting unnecessary amounts of it over a long period of time carries an elevated risk of heart issues.
