comment Death because of distilled water consumption
This answer was borderline wrong. Specifically I take issue with Drinking only this kind of water will be fatal because it is highly hypotonic as you've found out -- I drank only distilled water for over 5 years with no ill affects whatsoever. As you explain later in the answer, it's about salt balance, and there's more than enough salt in food (at least in America where I am) to compensate for drinking distilled water. So, maybe you'd die from drinking only distilled water and not eating, but I can confirm that drinking distilled water is not a sure path to death.
