Arent there minerals missing from distilled water that my body needs?
There is no doubt that the body needs minerals. This issue is perhaps the hottest one regarding the use of distilled water. It is easy to find an equal number of authorities or experts on both sides of this controversial issue.
In short, virtually all nutritional and medical authorities agree that the body assimilates organic minerals from the daily food cycle. Where the authorities disagree is whether or not the body directly extracts any nutritional value from the minerals found in an inorganic source such as dissolved rocks, dirt, and stone found in tap or mineral waters.
Perhaps the best way we have found to sort out this problem is to evaluate various tap and mineral water sources around the world and determine the amount of inorganic minerals (by weight) which would be consumed by drinking an average of two liters of tap water daily. Then, we compare this number to the amount of minerals (by weight) found in a normal daily diet. Dr. Jon Kirschmanns Nutritional Almanac is one of several good sources for this data.
When these two sources of minerals are compared, the results are real eye-openers. On the average,over 95% of the major and trace minerals ingested daily (by weight) come from food (fruits, vegetables, animal products) - and less than 5% from drinking water.
The distilled water mineral issue then can be focused into a much clearer question: Is it really smart to ingest all types of heavy metals, bacteria, chemicals used in water treatment processes, industrial and agricultural chemical residues, etc. simply to get that little additional percentage of daily mineral intake from water sources. We dont think so!
