Distilled Drinking Water is Dangerous ?


This article bothers me. “Early Death Comes from Drinking Distilled Water”.  I am not a fan of distilled drinking water.  Our water comes from spring. It is clean and taste good so we use it as drinking water.

How come that distilled water would bring us early death. Distilled drinking water undergo the process such as filtration, distillation, reversed osmosis, etc… to ensure the safety of drinking public. Generally it is free from harmful substances and microorganisms. Everybody would agree that it is safe.  Why does distilled drinking water become unsafe. The article states the following reasons.

When water is freed from minerals, it becomes active absorber. It absorbs body minerals and take it out of our body. This may lead to various diseases.

Diet with distilled water can be dangerous because of the rapid loss of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride) and trace minerals like magnesium. Deficiencies of which can cause heart beat irregularities and high blood.

Calcium may also be absorb and can lead to osteoporosis.

Consumption of distilled water is related to some cardiovascular diseases.

It absorbs carbon dioxide in air . The result is a more dangerous acidic water which is not good for our body.

Is this true ?
