    Can you drink distilled water safely? - Medical News Today

    I am not a doctor and I am not suggesting that people should drink distilled water. Do your own research before doing so.

    I have thought about the water I drink for years as I almost always drink tap water. I don't think most bottled water is any better than tap. People spend money to filter their tap water and take other measures in effort to drink "pure" water. Sometimes, passing through the water aisle at the grocery I see the distilled water and and think of drinking it.


    I posted this in the conspiracy thread but I think it's worth a separate thread.

    Excerpt:
    The main risks of drinking only distilled water are associated with the lack of dissolved minerals, such as magnesium and calcium.
    Some of the adverse effects of drinking just distilled or low mineral water include:

    • a flat taste that many people find unappealing, leading to reduced water consumption
    • a decrease in the body's metabolic function
    • an increase in urine output that could result in electrolyte imbalance

    Failing to replace minerals lost through sweat
    Replacing the minerals lost through sweat is important to keep the body functioning well.
    When the body loses water through sweating and urine output, it loses sodium and other minerals in addition to water. In order for the body to function properly, those minerals must be replaced.
    However, when people drink distilled water, the minerals are not replaced as all additives have been removed during the distillation process.
    This lack of minerals and additives would only pose a significant risk if distilled water was the only fluid or food that a person consumed.
    As most people eat and drink a variety of food and beverages throughout the day, most people will get the salts and minerals they need from these other sources.https://youtu.be/ZP9DegWHsfU

    One other thing, distilled water is actually recommended to eliminate/remove impurities. Some medical cites warn against drinking it exclusively but I question that. They say we need the fluoride, calcium etc. Never mind the lead, mercury and even nicotine.

    I don't like fluoride in the water.

    Put some apple cider vinegar in that water and you'll be better off.

    Why don't you just get one of those water filters, PJ?

    Like Zero Water.

    I was just researching this yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9K4Es9FNG0

    I drink carbon filtered water but am considering this too. The purer the water the better, just as God intended. Adam (& Eve) drank pure water.

    Yes, that would definitely be better than tap water. I think VOC's still get through though. The video by Watchman seems to be a low priced way to get pure water. This bottom link rates filters and towards the bottom they show distillers.
