John, If you are eating right, you should be getting all your minerals 
and 'stuff' from your food, not your water.  I began distilled water in 
'91.  I haven't wanted to see a doctor since.  I also, later switched to 
organic foods, later to raw (unpasteurized) milk.  When everyone in town 
is catching some flu or virus, it NEVER gets me or my family.
