Can you drink 100 percent pure water?

Water?? Never touch it. Fish fornicate in water!

Yes, but good luck finding it. Believe it or not, "pure" water is a very good electrical insulator. But even distilled water has some other things in it.

When you eat or drink anything that contains water, and everything does, your body absorbs the water as "100% pure water", along with whatever else in the way of nutrients that it can get. So the simplest answer to your question is 'yes'. In addition, the idea that drinking distilled water will remove minerals from your body is nonsense, your body kidneys and hormones control what minerals stay in your body and at what levels, not what you drink. They function to maintain and control the balance of minerals and water in your body no matter what you eat or drink.Source(s): Principles of Anatomy, Grey House, 2020.

define "100 percent pure water"
You will never find a drinkable size sample of water that is 100% H2O molecules and 0% anything else. Even the purest of purest water has things dissolved or suspended in it. Even if you could magically produce (which you can't) such a sample, the H2O would dissociate into H3O+ and OH- ions.
everything dissolves in water. The purer the water, the more likely it will dissolve stuff it's exposed to such as minerals in you. Drinking ultra high purity water is NOT safe! See the links

Yes it's ok to drink, but there is no such thing as 100% pure water!
Humans actually prefer and are healthier drinking slightly messy water.
I put water through 6 purification levels for use in nuclear reactors and it's close, but still not "100% pure".

Distilled water is safe to drink. But you'll probably find it flat or bland. That's because it's stripped of important minerals like calcium, sodium, and magnesium that give tap water its familiar flavor.

100% pure water doesn't really exist. The most distilled/demineralized/filtered water still contains a small level of contamination. But if you could find such a thing it would not harm to drink it in normal quantities

I was in the Navy for 5 years. For 3 of those I was on an aircraft carrier. We 'made' potable water while at sea ... basically distilled water from sea water. Some say drinking is bad for you, but it is all we had to drink while at sea ... I didn't die from it.
That is probably the closest to pure water as you can get and about 6000 on the ship. We drank it as water, as coffee.

That would be distilled water, and it’s very bad for you to drink distilled water. It will absorb minerals out of your body that you desperately need.
