Refreshing Stuff

27 February 2012

So, up until recently, I thought that Strontium was pretty much only common as part of radioactive fallout.

I was not expecting this

What is this crazy chernobyl run-off water I’ve been drinking? Well, after a little web searching, and a conversation with a collegue who is part owner in a Swiss spring, it turns out that Strontium does occur in nature relatively often. Maybe this isn’t news to most people, but as a fan of the old Strontium Dogs comic in my youth, it seemed interesting to me.

Mind you, the Nitrates listed directly below means that the water has been contaminated by farming fertilizer, so I think I might switch to a different brand.
