I drank it for years in the U.S. because my tap water tasted like cr*p. Tea and coffe tasted MUCH better. If there are lots of unwanted chemicals in your tap water, then distilled water (not osmosis-filtered, but truly distilled) will have NOTHING in it but pure water. On the other hand, you'll have to be very sure you're getting lots of minerals in your diet, as distilled water can leach them from your system -- or, at the very least, won't be ADDING anything. I'd still be drinking distilled water here in Germany, but it's a bazillion times more expensive. If you have a "water store" in your area, you can bring in your bottles and have them refilled, and it's really cheap -- not as cheap as tap water, of course!
