    Bottled water often does not contain fluoride.If children drink it exclusively theyare more likely to develope dental decay.Not that this was mentioned but a reason to stop the sale.Recently a friend suggested to me that Coca Cola’s biggest growing competitor is the bottled water industry.

    Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to assist me in this my necessity. (Mention your request here).
    There are none that can withstand your power. 
    Oh, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who find strength and hope in thee. (3 times). 
    Holy Mother, I place this prayer in your hands. (3 times). amen
