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.
