My understanding from a chemistry point of view has always been that distilled water is not only not good for you but downright bad. Since distilled water has virtually nothing in it except water (no cations, anions, etc. like Calcium, chloride, etc.), it will pull those substances out of your body through osmosis when you drink the distilled water (since everything in our world wants to reach an equilibrium). Distilling water only vaporizes the water into steam and then recondenses it into water. BUT - the distillation process pulls out virtually everything else that is in the water because all those other components don't boil off into steam at the temperature that water does. It has surprised me to read all the discussion on these boards about drinking distilled water as it has always been my understanding that long-term consumption of distilled water is not a good thing.
If anyone could elucidate the reasons for drinking distilled H2O I would be very interested.
