    You can but there would be little point. Distilled water will be stripped of most essential minerals and will be utterly tasteless. Eventually the body will protest and you will become quite ill.
    Distilled water is only useful if you are distilling seawater, blood, urine or contaminated pond water for survival purposes.
    kind regards Peter

    No, it is not healthy to drink distilled water unless you add vitamin/mineral drops to it. Distilled water has its purposes, but drinking is not one of them.
