Water purified by reverse osmosis is in fact water in its purest form, almost 100% H2O, but that does not make it healthy for the human body, which requires minerals which can only be sufficiently absorbed by water that has not been purified. “When we drink purified water, we are consuming a pure chemical substance, H2O. Pure chemical substances of any kind are not found in nature collected together, but instead are always mixed with other substances. Because of its extreme purity, purified water absorbs carbon dioxide from the air, which makes it acidic and even more aggressive at dissolving the alkaline substances it comes in contact with.” (Purified Water and its …show more content…
