GAINESBORO, TN. -- For some people bottled water is a luxury, but for six-year-old Wyatt Trisdale, it is a life necessity. He uses it in anything he ingests, for cleaning any cuts, even for brushing his teeth.

Give me a freaking break. Quackery anyone? Of coarse over the past 4 years you've seen a difference in him, the kid was two when this was started! It's called AGING, you know, a normal life process.

Shame on you Nestle for falling for this crap. Nice to know prices on MY bottled water and other stuff go up to help support retarded causes like this.

It's only quackery for some of us. For Nestle, it's cheap PR.

It also reinforces false medical myths, and perpetuates fear in parents whose children have special needs. Shame on Nestle for implying (while not actually stating) that their water can treat autism.

Nestle's also the same company who is known for their lack of ethics vis-a-vis promotion of infant formula. So if they're pushing snake oil cleverly disguised as bottled water, it's not exactly a big news day in Corporate Ethics Land.
