This is an important issue. And, of course, there is much controversy. Specially the proponents of distill water are very much against any rock mineral.
I have the book from Dr. Norman W. Walker “Water can undermine your health”. Dr Walker, as many of you know, lived 116 years and was a big proponent of distill water.
In his book he speaks constantly against the minerals in water. He states that part of those minerals stay in the body. He also says that a person 70 years old would have taken with the water something between 80 and 120 kg of minerals.
He cannot say how much from those minerals will stay in the body but he states that a part from them will for sure stay in the veins, in the arteries, muscles and joints.
He also says that according to one study among different countries those with bigger consume in bier: Germany, England, Australia and USA had the most cases of degeneration in kidneys and brain. Tells that in the production of bier they make the water very hard (till 35 times harder).
I bought a bier for the experiment and I measured it with a Tds (Total Dissolved Solids) Conductivity meter. Result: 1,300 µs (microsiemens).
The conductivity is in direct proportion to the dissolved particles so the higher the µs, the grater the number of particles (minerals).
I have measured normal tap water in towns of only 75 µs, so this bier contains at least 17 times more particles than that water.
I have at home a RO (reverse osmosis) system which from an input of 750 µs (so hard is the water where I live) renders an output of only 40 µs.
We are coming to the point:
I measured directly the lime water (and I was expecting a huge number of microsiemens because the lime water looks white) but it only gives 160 µs.
I'm talking about the pure lime water. What we drink in a Moreless Alcalising Drink is just one spoon of this water dissolved in a cup of liquid.
If a put a spoon of the lime water in a cup of the RO water (40 µs) the mixture gives the measurement of only 51 µs. Still better than in the best water town I found.
That means that if you use distill water (0 µs) you will have the insignificant value in water of 11 µs.
That's really nothing and no reason to worry, I think.
