Should advertisements like this even be allowed? How do we stop it?

What's wrong with it? To me it just looks like a whole bunch of bullshittery and big words. It's just water. Your product is basically exactly the same as every other company.

It's bullshit that people may believe (the health benefits of alkaline water is already a big thing) and promote anti intellectualism by pandering to these anti science people. It has a social consequence.

Philo 0316, I didn't think it was that much of a big deal.

­čĄŁJDaniel Richer­čĄŁ, spreading misinformation to make more money isn't a big deal?

Philo 0316, it isn't if no one buys it. I don't buy this. I wonder how their business is doing.

­čĄŁJDaniel Richer­čĄŁ, and you realize there's a sizeable group of people who believe this?

Philo 0316, I didn't know this, no. Do you have data?

­čĄŁJDaniel Richer­čĄŁ, for this brand in specific, this is the best I could find. https://www.bevnet.com/news/2018/essentia-water-closes-2017-record-revenue "Essentia to be able to double its revenue in 2017, ending the year with approximately $124MM in retail measured sales" I'm not sure how trustworthy this article is, so I'll look into this stuff further. But there is this pseudoscientific health movement with alternative therapy and whatnot.
