Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Despite being a hub for technological advancement, California’s bay area is also notorious for absurd anti-science health trends such as a new and ridiculous trend – “raw water”.

That’s actually unfiltered, untreated, raw spring water, which, even when from the seemingly cleanest of sources, can spread diseases like cholera, E. coli, Hepatitis A or Giardia.

To add insult to potential injury, this unsterilized water, bottled and marketed by startups like Live Water, is priced at $36.99 per (Approx.Shs150,000) for 10 litre containers.

The water is often out of stock and typically sees a price hike with every restock.
