Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There was a time when carbonation, alcohol or boiling used to be the only way to drink water without risk of gastroenteritis...

But nowadays, with steel and concrete water treatment plants, drinking carbonated water, soft drinks, beer, wine or tea are a lifestyle choice as far as hydration is concerned.

The peak-to-trough part of the business cycle is an outlier. Carnot would have died laughing.
