Pumped water from the mountain aquifer we used to drink contains too much calcium and magnesium - it is very hard water. Most homes in Israel have installed water softeners, because you cant use dishwashers without it. Tea made with hard water tastes horribly. Desalinated water has no hardness, so some calcium is added artificially to make it acceptable to the population used to hard water.
So we have pure molecular water with some calcium added. What about the magnesium - are we missing it? Most water supplied in the USA does not contain any magnesium at all but people doesnt miss it because there are many other sources of magnesium. Yes, but what if...? So some busybodies are trashing the Government because it is supplying magnesium-less water. They want back their old, salty, metal-rich minedrain Pißwasser. You cannot satisfy them. Ill.: Himalayan Crystal Salt advertisement - add to water - it contains all the essential minerals required by the human body. Million years of untouched purity on the Himalaya mountaintop.
