What is distilled water? This is a good question to be answered. Distilled water is free of many impurities, such as minerals, chemicals, sediments etc. It’s hard to say all the impurities in water are harmful for your healthy. Some minerals may be the minerals that our body needs. But most of the impurities are harmful to our body. Especially along with the rapid development of industry, natural water is polluted. Many harmful impurities are dissolved in water. If we drink such contaminated water, we will place a heavy burden on our body. Finally the contaminated water may cause diseases.
As the purest water, it is free of chemicals, such as chlorine, pesticides, benzene etc. These chemicals are toxic. Heart trouble, cancer and senility may cause by these chemicals. Also it is free of minerals. This is bad news and good news. Bad news is that useful minerals are removed and the good news is that harmful minerals such as lead, mercury, arsenic are removed. Distilled water is free of bacteria, virus and other microorganism.
Well other question how to make distilled water. The process of making distilled water is called distillation. When water is heated and boiling, liquid water converts into vapor, then condense the vapor to make it become liquid water again. All the impurities are left in the boiling water; the pure condensed water doesn’t contain any impurities. The process of distillation shows that why it is the purest water in the world. We can use home water distiller to make it at home.
In fact, the rain water is such distilled water in a sense. River water, lake water, ocean water is heated by the sun, and some liquid water changes into water vapor. The vapor arises and forms cloud. Finally it becomes rainwater. But the rain water is not pure because there are VOCs in the air. These VOCs dissolve in rainwater and contaminate the rain water.
We cannot live without water. Our body needs water. Loss of water may lead to reduction in blood circulation, which causes renal failure, brain damage etc. So we need to drink healthy water. I can’t say it is the healthiest water. But I can say it is the safest water we can drink.
