New High for Bottled Water

For those of you looking for a new standard of silliness for bottled water, we offer Oxyshot- deionized water containing a little salt and lots of "bio-available diatomic oxygen"- at sixty bucks for 250 ml, smaller than a can of pop. It's promoted as a pick-me-up for athletes, stressed workers, old folks and hangovers. However, as one doctor said: "The idea of getting extra oxygen through a drink doesn't add up. People get oxygen through their lungs, not their stomach." From Australia, where we know water is in short supply but surely this is a bit much. Female readers should be proud of Treehugger for not gratuitously using pictures of scantily dressed female bodybuilders from the Oxyshot website. ::Oxyshot via ::Guardian
