Somebody explain what the best way to get clean water is?

Somebody explain what the best way to get clean water is? Been reading about this for a while now and all I get is conflicting info: general consensus is that pitcher filters are shit, but RO systems are apparently simultaneously the best and worst. Some swear by it, some swear it's killing them. Some also swear the remineralization process is absolutely necessary, but I can't tell if that's because they're all normies and have shit diets to begin with, or if the RO water really does leech minerals from your body or some shit. Someone please settle this once and for all.

    Distillation.

      The same problem persists; if lack of minerals truly causes the leeching of minerals in the body and subsequent pissing them out, then distillation, an even more stripping purification system, won't solve the issue.

      Basically the question remains: does completely demineralized water leech anything from the body? Or is it just that people eat poor diets and blame their deficient bodies on their water?

        Distilled water doesn't leech things from your body. That doesn't even make sense. You'll just have less minerals going into your body, as the water does not have the trace amounts it would have had otherwise.

        If you're that worried, you can buy minerals specifically for adding to distilled water to make it into 'mineral water'. Or just take a multivitamin.

        I au studied science at uni and ultra pure water was considered dangerous for human consumption, not sure how close distilled water gets to that but I wouldn't recommend drinking it either
        I doubt any commercial filter takes enough out to matter at all for someone with a normal diet

      the question is less "what gets me the purest water?" and more "will completely purified water leech minerals from my body?" The specific distinction is does purified, demoneralized water actively deplete the body of minerals, or is it just not adding anything? The whole leeching thing just sounds like cope to me but I'm moronic so I wanna make sure I'm not hurting myself.

    Yes. Countless cellular processes run on osmosis, which is essentially the flow of absorbed chemicals from a dense area to an empty area in your body. Nerves for example will pump sodium outside themselves to build up a charge, then let it all rush back in under osmotic pressure to fire. That pumping is constant because cells are leaky, and you can frick that process up if you dont have enough ions to maintain the pressure gradient. If you drink RO water the salts will flow out of your cells and you will deplete yourself quite quickly. Diet will compensate for a lot of it, but dietary requirements assume you're drinking normal water. Its going to be hard to know how to compensate safely.

    The other issue is there are some molecules too big to leak out, and they follow osmotic rules too just in reverse. If the inside of a cell is very salty then water will be drawn into it, which can burst the cell.

    If you insist on RO water keep your eyes out for fatigue, muscle spasms and/or brain fog, they'll probably be among the first and most obvious signs of you killing yourself

      Thanks anon. I don't insist on RO water, I insist on whatever system will eliminate the following:
      Bromodichloromethane
      Bromoform
      Chloroform
      Chromium (Hexavalent)
      Dibromochloromethane
      Dichloroacetic Acid
      Haloacetic Acids (HAA5)
      Haloacetic Acids (HAA9)
      Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM)
      Trichloroacetic Acid
      These are the contaminants present in my area's water, plus fluoride. RO seems to be the method that best handles this specific list, but I am open to other ideas; distillation seems like overkill.

      You mention that dietary requirements assume I'm drinking "normal" water, but what constitutes normal? Tap water in one area can vary pretty dramatically from another, no?

      Feel free to provide a credible source where this has actually happened and was directly caused by drinking RO water and not some woman that was on death's door already. You won't be able to.

      There's two big flaws in this argument: the RO water is not coming into direct contact with every cell in your body. By the time it is being passed through your small intestine (where the majority of it is passed into your bloodstream), it is no longer RO. Second, if your bloodcells (which is what the water will be absorbed by; it's not like you are pouring water directly into your brain) is that easily damaged by that small a difference in osmotic pressure, you'd be dead already from just living on this planet. Period. Your body is great at compensating for a wide variety of circumstances because it has to be.

      Finally, the percentage of minerals you get from mineral water vs. actual food, unless you are a hyper autist that eats the most moronic diet, is minuscule. You don't even need numbers (although I will provide them) to prove this. Just a thought experiment. If the minerals in natural water were totally necessary, how would you know you're drinking the right water? Are you assuming all mineral/tap/spring water is equal? Do you not realize that mineral, spring, and tap water has an incredibly huge variance of mineral content? Yet somehow, even with all this variance, no one gives a shit. It's because the content doesn't fricking matter.
      https://www.ars.usda.gov/arsuserfiles/80400525/articles/ndbc32_watermin.pdf
      Municipal water, which has kept hundreds of millions of people alive on average for 78 years each in the US, has pitiful amounts of mineral content. Wow, maximum of 4.6 mg of Mg and 10 mg of Ca. That's as much as 0.6 oz (17 g) of salmon. Literally one bite vs 100g of water.

        This is OP, not the anon you're responding to, so forgive my ignorance on this. My understanding is that RO water, being devoid of minerals, will pull them from your body and release them through urine. You're saying this is not the case because said water only ever directly touches a relatively tiny amount of cells, but would this not cause some of that mineral pulling? Or are these supposed "leeched minerals" not even present in those cells to be leeched? I understand and agree that the human body is capable of adapting and compensating, but I don't want to have to do such a thing unless it's a net benefit: weight training is an adaptation I want, and the same goes for this if it's analogous with the adaptation weight training gives.
        >Minerals in food
        This I already agree with. I very much AM a hyper autist when it comes to nutrition and know I am ingesting adequate levels of every macro and micro, so the issue isn't "I'll be missing out on crucial levels of micronutrients from my drinking water". I actually believe this might be the real reason this """leeching""" dogma exists; people with shit diets drink RO water, realize they have shit diets, then blame the RO water rather than realizing the unpurified stuff was what was keeping them at bare minimum.

        imagine being memed into thinking replacing your cancer water with pure h2o will kill you via sodium deficiency

        this is how I feel about it as well, it just seems unintuitive, and like the leeching thing was just created by lazy normies looking for yet another scapegoat like genetics and thyroid issues.

    I've been wondering the same for a while actually. I don't think RO water could be harmful in any way if you install a mineralizer.

    Word of caution about RO systems, though - the most common, basic b***h pumpless systems rely on the pressure in the pipes. This is not high enough to make the filtered water immedietely available, so there's a tank that gets filled with filtered water. In other words, you're actually drinking old ass water, with a very real risk of bacteria. Get a tankless system with an electric pump if you can.

      So in your opinion, a remineralization step IS necessary when using RO? I was planning on using tankless anyways since I live in NYC and space is at a premium as is.

      Could you explain in more detail? This also looks like a proprietary filter type, the kind that can be a b***h and a half to replace if they suddenly decide to not be in stock or simply discontinued, which is apparently a problem others have had with RO systems.

    Any water that contains fluoride is unfortunately going to eventually kill you by means of mineralization within your blood vesicles, albeit slowly and over time henceforth it goes unnoticed. The government is really good at what it does; we're basically all frogs being boiled in a pot of fluoride water. It's really quite something whence you open your eyes for the first time in your adult life and you see things for what they really are; the internet has really changed the game; we have been awakened.
