"So what's the deal with distilled water? I.e. is it safe to drink continually? I have a machine that that makes it and it tastes great compared to tap water and bottled water but I have read conflicting data about its safety. Some saying its benefits are unlimited and others saying it robs minerals from the body! Can you help?"

You should not grant credibility to anyone who suggests that water is dangerous if it is too pure. Unadulterated spring water is the gold standard of water, but distilled water is a close second place. We use a Berkey water filter with added fluoride filters ourselves, which was designed to create man-made spring water by leaving the minerals, while stripping everything else out.
