I apologize if this isn't the place for such questions; LMK if not and I'll delete. I asked myself who might be best equipped with this knowledge so I brought me here
When I hear people say distilled water strips minerals from you, is that true? I'm having a hard time finding a direct answer on this. Some say it's detrimental to your health, others say it's good because its negative charge aids in cleansing inorganic minerals from the body. Then I've seen it compared to rain water while others have argued that it isn't exposed to certain atmospheres like rain water so it's different. Then I read that many U.S embassies & our Navy use distillers for their water..
I'm only asking because I wanted a nice water filter and was stuck between RO and distilling. A distiller would be as cheap as an under-counter RO unit and I wouldn't be buying expensive filters monthly.. but all these unfulfilling distilled water warnings are scaring me away.
