  IAN: Yeah, for that reason I add trace-mineral drops to distilled
  water. Also, distilled has only been a PART of my water intake,
  which is mostly spring water. Of course some tap gets through 
  since you usually end up cooking with tap. I've not been found
  to have mineral deficiencies in any blood tests. But for those 
  on a calorie-restricted diet, you've got to be careful. Thanks
  for the reminder and the link. Can you find anything related to
  this via PubMed? If I had Alzheimer's, given the studies cited 
  in this thread, I'd probably aim for drinking mostly distilled.
