Re: Is tap water ok?

If you mean 'pure water' as in RO water or distilled... well, there's a lot of controversy over it... some say it's great and clean of contaminates, others say that if you drink it, then your body will lose minerals because the water pulls minerals from your body and you lose them when you use the restroom... in that sense, it would be recommended to drink alkaline water.


Here's one of those anti-RO articles (an advertisement!)

I don't know how much truth there is to health issues related to drinking RO water, especially when thousands of people live in areas where there is soft water to begin with and may not be getting the "necessary minerals" required from drinking water. That said, I would hope that they would be receiving all the necessary minerals they require through diet alone!
