Dr. Richard Kornberg, a former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said it is important to remember that many people have been drinking distilled water for decades.
“I have seen that it has been very safe and I do not think that it’s been a health hazard,” he said.
“If you look at all the things that have happened to people that have drank it, there are a lot of things that it does that are beneficial.”
“I do not believe that there are any adverse effects on anyone,” Kornbacher said.
The CDC has issued two reports that found no evidence of long-term health problems.
But Dr. Scott Drennen, the chief medical officer at the CDC, has said that distilled water could have adverse health effects.
“This is a distilled water that’s being used for human consumption,” he told ABC News in January.
“So it’s a product that’s been drinking water that we know has been in the human population for a long time.
And so, I think it’s appropriate to ask whether it’s safe.”
Some people think distilled water might be safe, but it is not necessarily, according to the CDC.
Drinking distilled water can lead to liver and kidney damage, which can cause kidney failure, according the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics.
A 2016 study in the journal Pediatrics found that adults who drank distilled water had a greater risk of developing liver cirrhosis than adults who did not drink distilled water.
Drinking water that has been distilled for at least 15 years is considered safe, according an FDA statement.
According to the FDA, distilled water should not be used to treat cancer or other medical conditions.
But the FDA has said there is insufficient evidence that drinking distilled or purified drinking water can improve health or reduce the risk of cancer or cardiovascular disease.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services also advises people to drink distilled or distilled drinking water.
“It is the healthiest choice to drink water that is distilled from natural sources,” Dr. Daniela Pimentel, a spokesperson for the Centers, said in a statement.
“There are a variety of natural sources of water that can help support a healthy lifestyle.”
