[permaculture] Pure Water Revolution- NOT

The problem with distilled water is its hungriness for salts. Pure (distilled) water does not exist in Nature. Water, being a near universal solvent, will actively look for and dissolve many substances until it is 'sated'. Hence the mineral richness of 'spring water' and its reported health benefits.

It is the opposite of what pure chemical salts do. They are thristy for water and often will attract water from the atmosphere. (Hence adding rice grains to salt shakers).

Drinking mostly hypotonic liquids, like distilled water, will cause, over time, leaching of minerals from the body with all its unpleasant consequences.
