    Lightbulb Is distilled water safe?

    maayung gabie istoryans,

    i have been drinking distilled water (absoute) for years na but karon pako naka research about ani niya

    Water is distilled through a process in which the water is boiled, evaporated and the vapor is condensed.

    The distillation process does remove many unhealthy contaminants in source water, but it also removes naturally occurring minerals.

    Drinking Distilled Water May Increase
    Body Acidity

    In its healthiest state, the pH of the body should be slightly alkaline. In fact, the body will do everything in its power to maintain the pH of the blood between 7.3 and 7.4 pH (slightly alkaline)
    As you may remember from high-school chemistry, the pH scale has a range from 0 to 14. Neutral pH is 7.0. Anything below 7.0 is acidic and anything above 7.0 is alkaline.
    Many doctors and health advocates around the world are convinced that the accumulation of acid waste in the body is the primary cause of most degenerative diseases and premature aging. Numerous clinical and scientific studies support this theory.
    The primary cause of accumulated acid waste in the body is attributed to poor diet (especially animal-based foods, alcohol, tobacco, sugar, all processed and fried foods, and soft drinks) as well as other lifestyle factorsmost notably, stress (which is highly acidifying in the body).
    The best drinking water is mineral rich and will thus have a higher alkalinity, between 7.0 pH and 9.5 pH, depending on one's diet and other factors. People who have a higher level of body acidity will benefit more from drinking water with a higher pH.
    Drinking Distilled Water May Contribute to Mineral Loss in the Body

    Even though distilled water is “purified” and thus enters the body pure, it does not come out pure. Some believe that drinking distilled water can cause a mineral imbalance in the body.
    Nearly 30 years ago, Paavo Airola, ND, PhD, advised against the prolonged use of distilled water for this reason.

    Water filtered through a solid charcoal filter is slightly alkaline. Ozonation of this charcoal filtered water is ideal for daily drinking. Longevity is associated with the regular consumption of hard water (high in minerals). Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of distilled water

    Airola wrote: “Distilled water is totally devoid of all minerals, and prolonged use of it may leach out the body’s own mineral reserves and lead to severe mineral deficiencies and such diseases as osteoporosis, diabetes, tooth decay and heart disease.”
    More recently, Zoltan P. Rona, MD, MSc, concurs, “The longer one drinks distilled water, the more likely the development of mineral deficiences and an acid state.”

    unsa inyo masulti ani? salamat daan

    We need minerals in our body... It is mostly the bacteria that we do not need.

    Better drink mineral water... Or boiling tap water is good enough.

    pedia's recommend distilled water (absolute/wilkins) for making formula milk on babies.
    distiiled water is also recommended for people who experienced kidney stones.
