[Cdt-l] Water Treatment

I want to pose a question to this group because I think it's a
well-moderated forum and it seems like mostly experienced hikers here. I
DON'T want to open (re-open!) a can of worms about the best way to treat

I'm looking for some hard data about the relationship between treating
water (or not) and hikers getting sick. I'm NOT looking for annecdotal
evidence or manufacturer's claims. I hope someone here can point me to an
actual study that shows, conclusively, that not treating water leads to
sick hikers.

Any information is much appreciated. Thank you!
