I grew up drinking well water from a deep aquifer. Nothing quite tastes like that, but I do realize that the high iron and lack of fluoride didn't exactly make the best water. Now my tap water comes from a lake and I swear I can taste the fish poop.

When I was kid I was amazed and appalled by the tap water when I visited family who were living in the city, it seemed about as plausible for drinking as gasoline would.
It amuses me now that I live in the same city and don't even notice the chlorination.

Deionizers/reverse osmosis/filters that remove organics do the same thing.

/distilled water isn't bad for you but if you drink it all the time it will deplete your body of essential minerals in regular water.

Mr. Titanium: Distilled water is produced by filtration? WTF??? Wouldn't it be produced by DISTILLATION?


In a word.  Yes

You have to boil it and then let it drip off of a non- pourous surface. to distill it.

And no Mr Revenuer, My GranPap never did have no still in them hills.

Mr. Titanium: Distilled water is produced by filtration? WTF??? Wouldn't it be produced by DISTILLATION?


Nowadays it's much cheaper to remove impurities via reverse osmosis (which is not the same as filtration, but I'm sure that's what they meant). Actual distillation takes a ton of energy.
 
2013-01-12 10:09:02 AM  
Never use a filter for your city tap water. You take out trace minerals like Co Mo and Cu
 
2013-01-12 10:12:22 AM  
Animatronik is correct, you could by reverse osmosis do a similar thing. Either way you are leaching the minerals. So take your vitamins, Extra B vitamins and lotsa water in the early morning.Or maybe that's just us drinkers. Oh well.

I have a friend that won't drink water at all because fish fark in it and it has no taste.

I use dechlorinated tap water for my fish. Turn out that the cats prefer it also and don't use their Drinkwell any more.

I've been drinking well water for 12 years with no holes in my teeth. Maybe if you brushed them more then once a week?

Nature did get it right distillation is natures hydrologic cycle. The sun turns the ocean to steam and distilled water falls as rain. As for the lack of minerals, its trace inorganic minerals that your body doesn't absorb too well. Look at a mineral supplament and you will see they put it in the organic form just like when you eat plants or animals you get the same minerals in their organic form which allows your body to absorb at a much better rate. I've been drinking distilled water since I was a kid with no problems. With all the shiat they put in water and all the shiat that you don't know is in your water, distillation is the best way to keep your water completly safe... or you could just not give a fark.

Water? Like out the toilet?

Wait, so this woman had "a newborn at home drinking a bottle of formula every three hours" and she decides to research water, head down to the store to buy bottled water, lug it back home, mix up the formula, heat the formula etc. rather than simply whipping out her bewbs and feeding the kid that way?
 
2013-01-12 11:26:43 AM  
i discovered a fun experiment everyone should try at home. the heater had been off when i came in in the morning, it was very very very cold in the apartment, and the heater is barely adequate for maintaining warmth. to help it along and to keep some moisture in the air i put some pots of water on the gas stove and kept them boiling for hours, adding more (tap) water as needed. after many hours of this i turned them off. the water level was pretty low in the pots, and the stuff in the pots that wasn't water was absolutely disgusting.

so - take some of the water out of your tap water and see what's left.

You know how I know you don't know the meaning of "mineral" and "organic"?
 
2013-01-12 11:42:42 AM  
The biggest problem in water isn't flouride or arsenic or even allowable poop levels (yes there is an allowable level). One of things not being measured is the amount of hormones including growth hormones in most water sources. It comes from agricultural run off and human beauty products funneling down the showers. Its not measured for by any tests on tap water or spring water.

Drink distilled. No it isn't bad. It's cheap too, sometimes you can get them for 15c a gallon on sale.

Of course then you get the BPA from the plastic so you're pretty much farked whatever you do.

Probably looking for 'bioavailable'. Eating green stuff is a much better way to get your minerals. Especially if you eat them with some fat. Hence, salad dressing.


/do you have the minerals?

OK, that makes sense, thank you.

staggerwing is talking about mineral supplements. I thought minerals in supplements were inherently not bioavailable, that food was a much better way to get the minerals.
