    All right, why would they even seel RO units as DRINKING water units for home use if the water was going to incendently harm your body? I own an RO unit hand have been dirnking the water it produces for about 1 year and a half now and let me tell you I have felt the best I have in a long while. I would much rather drink RO water (even if it DID rob your boddy of minerals) than drink the village crud that comes out of the faucet which is more harmful (if RO was) as it has dissolved Chorline gas in it which isn't the best for you. After you take a shower in my village the bathroom smells like a pool as the chorline is so potent. So don't tell me tap water is good for you and RO is bad.

    Not the best argument NepG as they sell cigarettes and we all know how good those are for us. LOL [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]


    Mindmaze has it pretty much correct but he falls a little short, all cells have the ability to osmoregulate (not just intestinal epithelia.) By diffusion and facilitated transport, cells control the concentrations of their macro- and micro-molecules within them. Drinking water (or any other fluid for that matter) will not greatly affect these concentrations (and about the only reason I know this garbage is because I just had a section on the genetics of cellular osmoregulation.)

    I beg to differ Pyro. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The argument is in my view, good as we KNOW cigaretscan kill you and hurt you BUT we KNOW RO won't hurt you and we sell the systems. SO yeah it's ironic but we sell it because it is GOOD for you. We sell cigarettes because the tobbaco CO's are worthless jerks that just want thier money.

    hehe

    Sorry pyro, I guess I wasn't too clear in that sentence. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    I just didn't emphasize other cells because Darcie was talking about absorbing minerals. Technically speaking though, I didn't write that only the plasma membrane of digestive tract cells are selectively permeable, so i'm not wrong!

    I thought this was a CP Forum. Shouldn't we concentrate on how this relates to CP.

    Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy these debates, and hearing the many different arguments for and against purified water as input for the human/animal body.

    I would, however, like to have an interjection from time to time that relates this back to CP.

    [BTW, lol: I've been drinking mostly purified water, though not exclusively, for more than 30 years. When I began purifying my own water for use on CP and orchids I discovered that it tasted wonderful so I started drinking it. If it kills me, then so be it. I am rarely ill, and have had few health problems in the majority of my lifetime. I don't know if I can relate my water drinking habits to my health, but I know if it isn't broke you shouldn't try to fix it.]

    Due to my preoccupation with CP I learned how to purify water and some of the ins and outs of water purification. I have assembled several different systems. One system I have, which I will utilize soon, is capable of producing 10,000 GPD of RO water. I plan to use that in my greenhouse when it is completed.
