I'll be just quick as I like to point out pure nonsense, thank you very little. He was actually calling pure water a TOXIN - a poison, for Pete's sake!! It's no such thing. And I'm well aware of the problems over-hydration can cause. In fact, there have been a few cases of it that hit the news in recent years - including the woman who was participating in a radio station promotion contest in California that made national news headlines. My other main point (besides the "toxin" stupidity) is that NO ONE depends upon their drinking water as their source of minerals and electrolytes - that's just MORE sheer stupidity. You can boil or distill all of your water if you like - you'll still get those essential elements and chemicals from the food you eat. Period.
