The tiny amount of distilled water you breath in is quit low compared to one coca cola.
Highly purified water (whether by distillation or reverse osmosis) is exactly neutral. After exposure to air for a period of time it will dissolve some of the CO2 from the air and become *slightly* acidic.
I would like to see some reference that shows that carbonated drinks decalcify one's bones. If the acid from carbonated drinks cause decalcification what does the stronger acid that is native to your stomach do?
google osteoporosis and coca cola, youll be snowed under. if you drink ph less than 3 phosphoric acid(coca cola) in enough quantity for enough time you will leach the minerals right out of your bones.
What I was referring to concerning pH and loss of minerals from bones was your general statement concerning soda pop. Coca Cola may well be a special case but it is not because of its pH but because of some of the special properties of phosphoric acid.

Where do you think that the weak acid that you drink in carbonated beverages goes.

First, which of the 4 specifications for type 1 water are you referring to. Second, I have taken 6000 megohm water (admittedly not the absolute purest but what is required for inorganic analytical labs) poured it into a beaker and put a pH electrode into it hooked up to a high quality pH meter. I have seen the pH start out at 6.98 and watched it drop due to the water picking up CO2 from the air.
Hard water is caused by calcium carbonate. The other minerals in water are not necessarily alkaline

In other words you do not have the time to support your assertions.
