Distilled water is safe to drink. (Why wouldn't it be?)

It is generally used for other applications, though, such as humidifiers and steam irons where naturally occurring minerals in water could build up and affect performance, mixing with other substances (medicines, dyes, etc.) where the minerals might affect quality, things like that.

Distilled water is sold for human consumption in supermarkets and other food stores.

It is pure H20, what makes you think it is unsafe?
