    So what is the verdict when it comes to distilled water anyway? I've found sources saying it's highly absorbant, leeches minerals from your body, ups body acidity, and leads to diseases. As well as other sources which say it is inert and actually acts better to hydrate the body. So.... what's the deal?

    it's reg water that's boiled, the water vapor rises into a thingy dingy and is then re-cooled (condensed) and now you have just the water, and not the other particles that were in the water, they are left behind.

    you'll be fine drinking distilled, its just like drinking any purified water. and just cuz theres no particles in it its not supposed to work? i think its funny that that would even cross someone's mind, your drinking water. shit all that means is theres a minutely higher concentration of water in a given amount. there is nothing you can do to water to change it from being water and doing what every other particle of water does unless you split it into hydrogen and oxygen or add something to it by some form of chemical reaction.

    Tap has so much shit it that you would be suprised! Even knowing that I wouldn't drink distilled, just get a Brita with activated carbon. It will take care of a lot of McNasties in your local tap water and instead of make trip's to the store to buy all that distilled water(unless you do it yourself and then you have to much time and equipment on your hands) it will save you money!

    yeah i just have a pure water fillter keg in my fridge to make my water taste better. city water tastes blahck. so i filter it so it tastes better. otherwise if the water tastes good....im fine with it from the tap. you can get minerals and shit from it if its from and underground well like at my parents house.
