Is Purified Water Bad for You?

Purified water contains no dissolved minerals and can therefore absorb toxic substances from the body and eliminate them. But studies show that drinking this water is only safe for short periods of time. Carbon dioxide from the air for instance is rapidly absorbed leaving the water acidic and even more aggressive.

The most toxic commercial drinks are made from purified water and studies have consistently shown that heavy consumers of soft drinks, sugar-free or otherwise, dispense huge amounts of calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals into the urine leading to a greater risk of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure etc etc etc.

Purified water is usually acidic and can only be recommended for drawing poisons out of the body – SHORT TERM! Long-term, disease and early death is more likely with continued consumption of purified water.
