Going to church may be bad for your health…

CBS reports that holy water is contaminated with fecal matter and bacteria.

According to Reuters, Vienna University researchers analyzed the water quality at 21 “holy springs” and 18 fonts at churches and chapels and concluded that people should not be drinking holy water.

“Of the holy springs investigated, only 14% met the microbiological and chemical requirements of national drinking water regulations,” the study states. “Considering results from sanitary inspections of the water catchments, no spring was assessed as a reliable drinking water source.”

    All I can think of is the polluted River Ganges. Must be the “holiest” water of all.
