Can I sell you a bottle of tap water? Or how about a bottle of water I got somewhere in the United States , but failed to treat according to any standards you know of? It's only a $1.25 a bottle.

Distilled is not necessarily a good thing. You need the natural minerals that water has for bone strength. Distilled could be a bad deal for you over 20 yrs.
If you say so!
Lol!!! A single grain of rice has more minerals in it than a GALLON of water.
So once again, distilled water .... & a good amount of fruits and veggies. You'll get plenty of minerals :)

You really drink distilled water all day? Wow. How do you get it at work? Why distilled? How do you know that you are drinking distilled water?

Lost cruces,

Here's an article that you might think about when drinking your distilled water and your single grain of rice.

Looks like a little distilled water periodically is ok for you, but not long term. Then again, I'm not a doctor. I do know that many studies have been done on this subject of distilled or even filtered water and have shown mineral deficiencies in the people who grew up on say filtered water vs those that drink tap water.

Maybe your distilled with some mineral additive would be ok. Looks like it'll disolve all kinds of things if you are not careful.

Might still be better than drinking las cruces water with all of the free black stuff that comes with it.

Cheers!

Have a water

This is such a funny topic. Do a search on the net and you will find people on every side of this topic. Unfortunately, no one has any real proof as to what is better. Drink whatever you can afford and like. If it makes you happy, substitute beer for water. Back in the day when water was not drinkable, beer was what people drank. Bottled piss might be more filtered yet.

It is so funny, I was born and raised in Las Cruces and in the early 80's we would party at the water tanks by the dam off I-25, and the one behind Wal-Mart. We would climb up and drink beer and then open the top and pee in it. Thankfully we lived North of town and had well water......lol

Now that is mass distributed piss. One more reason not to drink from the local mass supply without some kind of filtration. Of course, in this case, the water was naturally filtered, the beer was filtered by his kidneys and then introduced into the water supply. Double filtered water and he didn't waste his beer, he recycled. That is so sick.

I've never bought bottled water, and I never will, i drink atleast a gallon of tap water a day, and i feel great! The other day i saw somebody buying bottled water, then they asked the clerk for a pack of Marlboro's. I thought that was funny as hell. If you suck on cancer sticks, you might as well just get a cup and scoop water from the toilet, because toilet water is better for you than cigarettes

Come by and smell the water that comes out of the faucet, it may as well be coming from the toilet.
