Your Mercola report is all wet. Most doctors do not agree with that NONSENSE.
As I said, we get all the minerals we need from the foods we eat, and any supplements that we take. Dr. Williams agrees and says this:
@@@@ I've read that distilled water leaches minerals out of your body. Is that healthy?
A) This assertion is made because distilled water doesn’t have any minerals of its own. However, most of the minerals we take in come from food, not water. And the fact is that your kidneys do a fine job of keeping your minerals in proper balance. As long as your kidneys are functioning normally, you’ll have no problems drinking distilled water.
@@@ Dr. Paul Bragg says…
“The greatest damage done by inorganic minerals (hard)—plus waxy cholesterol and salt—is to the small arteries and other blood vessels of the brain (75% water). Hardening of the arteries and calcification of blood vessels starts on the day you start taking inorganic chemicals (and minerals from tap water) into our bodies.”
“When distilled water enters the body, it leaves no residue of any kind. It is free of salts and sodium. It is the most perfect water for the healthy functioning of the kidneys(83% water). It is the perfect liquid for the blood(83% water), the ideal liquid for the efficient functioning of the lungs(86% water), stomach, liver(85% water) and other vital organs. Why? Because it is free of all inorganic minerals. It is so pure that all liquid drug prescriptions are formulated with distilled water. Dr. Paul Bragg, N.D. Ph.T., from his book: “The Shocking Truth About Water”
@@@ Dr. James Balch says…
“There is only one water, and that is clean, steam distilled water. No other substance on our planet does so much to keep us healthy and get us well as water does.”
@@@ Dr. Teofilio de la Torre says…
“Instead of drinking the hard water of springs or the chlorinated water of the cities, it will be to our advantage to drink distilled water . . . to prevent calcification of the body.”
So please stop promoting false information on Pure water. For every FALSE expert you find, I can quote 10 or more real doctors who promote & recommend distilled water. We can argue for months on end. But I will still provide many more doctors who recommend distilled water,
PS) Also, Mercola is a terrible reference and cannot be trusted,
