is drinking distilled water bad for you?

because it doesnt contain salts it damages the kidneys?
First of all, let me review for the record what distilled water is 鈥?it鈥檚 water that has been turned into steam so its impurities are left behind. The steam is then condensed to make pure water. The process of distillation kills and removes virtually all bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, and other organic and inorganic contaminants. Once distilled, the water is as pure as water can reasonably be. For reasons I don't understand, any number of myths 鈥?some quite extreme 鈥?have grown up over the years about distilled water. A quick Internet search today will take you to sites that put forth such views as "distilled water leads to early death." Nonsense. One claim holds that distillation removes all of water's beneficial minerals. While it鈥檚 true that distillation removes minerals as well as various contaminants from water, we don't know that the human body can readily absorb minerals from water. We get our minerals from food, not water. By one manufacturer鈥檚 estimate, you would have to drink 676 eight-ounce glasses of tap water in Boston to reach the RDA for calcium. Your question as to whether distilled water leaches minerals out of the body reflects another persistent myth. While pure water helps to remove minerals from the body that cells have eliminated or not used, it does not "leach" out minerals that have become part of your body's cell structure. Neither does distilled water cause your teeth to deteriorate, a false claim made by a filter manufacturer looking to boost sales. As far as acidity goes, distilled water is close to a neutral pH and has no effect on the body鈥檚 acid/base balance.I hope I've set your mind at ease. Distilled water not only isn't dangerous, it鈥檚 the purest form of water. It鈥檚 also the kind of water I drink.
but it has no minerals in it either, which the body needs.
No not at all, its not bad for you but its also not good for you, as it will have lost the important minerals however it is not harmful in any way.
yes it is - add some scotch to counter balance it
some what it does
Not bad for you as such but just to make sure that you kill any bacteria or baddies in there then try adding some Malt whisky in approximately 70% whisky 30% water
well dat depends i mean yes n no it can hurt u it depends how much water u drink if u drink a lil of it then its fine if u drink like a gallon from all day then i guess it can hurt u
not harmfull at all. how do you think we mix our black ink to tattoo light shading ? thats it. distilled water. if its safe enough to under your skin its deffinatly safe enough to drink
Drinking distilled water is not bad for you in any way. It has no effect on the kidneys. The only thing is that because it doesn't contain natural salts and minerals it doesn't taste as good as undistilled water. There is a large article about distilled water on Wikipedia. I suggest that you read it for information and reassurance.
I would look into that cause I don't have an answer
vat did your mozer tel u wippiin heed chab
Human beings survived (and still do) without distilled water for millions of years.You are not going to make any difference.But, distilled water is best-suited for wet-cell batteries right? :-)
what i know is that it is not bad for your organism, but it is useless for it because of the lack of the salts and other components that are essential to the body. Including some bacteria and microorganisms.
It is stripped of its mineral content. Once or twice it may not hurt you, however over the course of time is a different story. If you continually drink distilled water instead of regular water, your body will lack the essential nutrients to stay healthy. If you choose to drink distilled water then supplement your diet with the essential minerals that your body needs.
Distilled water is pure water and if this was all you have ever drank, there would be no effect on your body. The problem is our bodies are not use to pure water, as the water we drink has minerials and chemicals in it. Drinking distilled water would not harm you, just make you sick. Similar to the effect you get when drinking water abroard.
no its not bad for you to drink ,but mineral water is much better
