Its all our family has drank since 1989 - 2000. Since 2000 I installed an R.O. unit, so that's 23 years of drinking mineral-free water. I've read alarmists' reports that it supposedly "leaches out" minerals from the body. LOL. The body isn't stupid. Purified water beats the heck out of drinking city water, with all the fluorides, arsenic, etc. including dead bacteria from the hypochlorite / chlorine , dioxin, drug metabolites, pesticide residues, etc. I love distilled water.
