Hold on! Before those of you working in science labs drink your DI or RO
or distilled water without *boiling it*, better test it for sterility. 
It probably has more organisms than you might expect. Try some in a
standard thioglycollate sterility test tube, See what you get.

I prefer nice sterile chlorinated city water.
