[QUOTE=WussRedXLi;108659135]PS. Do note the health risks of drinking lots of demineralized water over a prolonged period esp with a mediocre diet......plus slightly increased leaching of micronutrients from food if such water is used when preparing/cooking food.

There are various contradicting reports on this. Some say there is no problem drinking water void of minerals as we get most of our minerals from meat, vegetables and fruits. The 8 cups per day water intake has also been debunked making it hard for us to get significant minerals just by drinking water.

The reason I want RO water filter is that it can filter our flouride which has known to cause cancer, brain damage etc. Especially for young kids. Fluoride is also very much present in toothpaste and if you read the warnings of some toothpaste at the back, it will usually say something like if you swallowed more than used for brushing, seek immediate help and keep out of reach of children. To me, fluoride is quite scary..
