    Distilled water and myths.

    One reason I posted this is what seems some question on distilled water,my daughter mentioned the idea that distilled water could leach minerals from the human body,there is some notions of this on the web,but by scientific fact this seems very stupid . distilled water is safe for people to consume,and i wonder where this idea came from,water might not be good for you if it contained to MANY minerals,but pure water is pure water,right?

    So,look here about these myths.
    MAGIC is MAGIC,black OR white or even blood RED

    all i ever wanted was a normal life and love.

    Distilled water is recommended for spider plants, if I remember right, because their leaves are sensitive to minerals. It's NOT recommended for parrots, and I'm not sure about other animals, but neither is most tap water. I have a Culligan filter system on my kitchen sink which is the only water I use for cooking & drinking. My water here has a lot of lime. In NJ it had a lot of iron.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    I use distilled water for my c-pap. So I don't think it would be bad for your health if they recommend it for your c-pap.

    Re: Distilled water and myths.

    depends on how it's distilled. or how much I guess. when I hear distilled water I think of the kind we use in a lab, and that's safe to drink but really not ideal at all... you can drink it, but if it's all you drink and you don't get enough minerals from other sources it could be dangerous for you.

    You'd have to drink a lot of distilled water, and getting no minerals from other dietary sources before getting to toxic levels.

    Hard water is bad for kettles. but it is good for your heart.

    It's a dietary source of calcium and magnesium. From the paper linked above:

    The mechanism by which hard water may provide protection against cardiovascular disease remains a matter of debate. The extra calcium it carries could help reduce blood pressure, whereas low serum magnesium concentrations—common to people living in soft-water areas—appear linked with arrhythmias. “Couple this with the fact that many of today’s refined foods are low in magnesium, that many people in developed countries either do not cover or only barely cover their magnesium needs, and that magnesium in drinking water is more bioavailable than that in food, and you can see how [even the relatively small] extra supply of this mineral to people in hard-water areas could be beneficial,” says Frantisek Kozísek, head of the National Reference Centre for Drinking Water in Prague, Czech Republic. “Cooking food in soft water also tends to remove magnesium, calcium, and other essential elements from food, making matters worse.”
