Special Consideration:

The below link purportedly shows a video review of the Lifestraw filter. While the title of the article asks whether you can really trust this filter, there is no objective, let alone scientific, review of the filter unit. I mostly include it as a ‘laugh of the day’ type of thing, particularly when she drinks her own urine. However, I’d also like to ask the prepping community to stop posting click-bait tripe like this, as it wastes our time. We have more important things to do.
