True enough. But many of the now available filters do indeed filter out
Giardia. I use Pur Plus specifically for that reason. However, I think
Brita's newest filter also does. I won't drink my tap water - it smells like
chemicals to me and I don't like it. So I filter the fuzzies water too - and
oddly enough, since I started doing that, they do have better coats.
Coincidence perhaps, but true.
