Do we need the minerals in drinking water?

Here's what the experts says....

"The body's need for minerals is largely met through foods, not drinking water"
.......American Medical Journal

"The minerals which the human body needs that are in the water are insignificant to those in food... and anyone simply eating a varied diet - not even a balanced diet, could hardly suffer a mineral deficiency".
....... Dr. Henry A. Schroeder - Dartmouth Medical School

"While several of these trace elements (minerals) maybe recognized as essential for human nutrition, it does not necessarily follow that human beings must obtain such elements from public water supplies"
.......Herbert I. Saver, Director of Health
University of Missouri

"Minerals are only usable as they are in found in organic forms of life such as plants, which make up an amazing link between the soils of the earth and animal life.

Would you go out and pick up a handful of soil and eat it?

Obviously not. Well, let your common sense answer here. Would you eat the soil if it were ground into a fine powder? There is no difference except in particle sizes. We are not rock or soil eaters. Your body cannot incorporate rocks into its cell structure. When you drink water containing minerals, they are inorganic. They're finely ground rocks!"
