TIP from Carole Doherty, MCSP MNZSP Dip APP, Director Sport Sciences and Medicine Department, Administration | Sony Ericsson WTA Tour:
" Avoid tap water, always drink bottled water from sealed tamper proof containers.  Clean teeth, contact lenses and dentures with bottled water.  Remember, freezing water does not kill bacteria. An iced drink looks appealing, but ice cubes present the same problem that tap water does. You can make your own ice if you boil the water first.  Avoid food that may have been rinsed in contaminated water, such as salad and fresh fruit."
