Bring on the smelly water!

2006 update: this wasn't a sincere request, really. Please bring the good water back.
On Eurekalert yesterday, Natural compound from 'pond scum' shows potential activity against Alzheimer's:
A compound isolated from a cyanobacterium, a type of blue-green algae known as Nostoc, shows promise of becoming a natural drug candidate for fighting Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases...

Cyanobacteria being the blue-green algae, which are the ones in your energy pills and the ones responsible for hepatotoxins* and neurotoxins in drinking water.

So, is the glass half empty or half full*?
