I agree, Distilled water should be fine. But bear in mind that if everything except the water was removed (all suspended and dissolved particles -deionized water), then the water itself would be very harsh. Drinking this would probably give you a dry throat due to the cleaning off of all the mucus and the osmotic rupture of the cells in your throat.
Product name(s) Sterile Water4. FIRST AID MEASURESIF INHALED: Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing.IF ON SKIN: Wash with plenty of soap and water.IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes.

Name: DISTILLED WATER PRS4. FIRST AID.Eye contact. If wearing contact lenses, remove them. Wash eyes with plenty of clean and cool water for at least 10 minutes while pulling eyelids up, and seek medical assistance.Skin contact. Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin vigorously with water and soap or a suitable skin cleaner. NEVER use solvents or thinners.Ingestion. If accidentally ingested, seek immediate medical attention. Keep calm. NEVER induce vomiting.5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES.Recommended extinguishing methods. Extinguisher powder or CO2. In case of more serious fires, also alcohol-resistant foam and water spray. Do not use a direct stream of water to extinguish.Special risks. Fire can cause thick, black smoke. As a result of thermal decomposition, dangerous products can form: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide. Exposure to combustion or decomposition products can be harmful to your health.Fire protection equipment. According to the size of the fire, it may be necessary to use protective suits against the heat, individual breathing equipment, gloves, protective goggles or facemasks, and gloves.Other recommendations. Use water to cool tanks, cisterns, or containers close to the heat source or fire. Take wind direction into account. Prevent the products used to fight the fire from going into drains, sewers, or waterways.6. MEASURES TO TAKE IN CASE OF ACCIDENTAL SPILL.Individual precautions. Eliminate possible ignition points and ventilate the area. Avoid breathing fumes. For exposure control and individual protection measures, see section 8.Cleaning methods. Pick up the spill with non-combustible absorbent materials (soil, sand, vermiculite, diatomite, etc.). Pour the product and the absorbent in an appropriate container. The contaminated area should be immediately cleaned with an appropriate de-contaminator. Pour the decontaminator on the remains in an opened container and let it act various days until no further reaction is produced. For later elimination of waste, follow the recommendations under section 13.Environmental protection precautions. Prevent the contamination of drains, surface or subterranean waters, and the ground. In case of large spills or if the product contaminates lakes, rivers, or sewers, inform the responsible authorities according to local legislation.7.1 Handling.The fumes are heavier than air and can spread across the ground. They can form explosive mixtures with air. Prevent the creation of flammable or explosive fume concentrations in the air; prevent fume concentrations above work exposure limits. The preparation must only be used in areas where all unprotected flames and other ignition points have been eliminated. Electrical equipment has to be protected according to applicable standards.The preparation can be electrostatically charged: always use earth grounds when transferring the product. Operators must use anti-static footwear and clothing, and floors must be conductors.Keep the container tightly closed and isolated from heat sources, sparks, and fire. Do not use tools that can cause sparks.Prevent the preparation from contacting the skin or eyes. Avoid the inhalation of fumes and mists that form when spraying.7.2 Storage.Store according to local legislation. Observe indications on the label. Store the containers between 5 and 35o C, in a dry and well-ventilated place, far from sources of heat and direct solar light. Keep far away from ignition points. Keep away from oxidising agents and from highly acidic or alkaline materials. Do not smoke. Prevent the entry of non-authorised persons. Once the containers are open, they must be carefully closed and placed vertically to prevent spills.8.2 Exposure controlsMeasures of a technical nature: provide adequate ventilation, which can be achieved by using good local exhaust-ventilation and a good general exhaust system. If this were not enough to keep the particulate and fume concentrations of the solvent below the work exposure limit, suitable breathing equipment must be used.Breathing protection: when workers are subjected to concentrations above the exposure limit, they must use suitable and officially approved equipment. Use active carbon masks.Hand protection: for prolonged or repeated contact, use polyvinyl alcohol or nitrile rubber types of gloves. Protective creams can help to protect exposed areas of the skin. These creams must NEVER be applied once exposure has occurred.Eye protection: use protective goggles especially designed to protect against liquid splatters. Install emergency eyewashes near the use area.Skin protection: personnel must wear anti-static clothing made of natural fibre or synthetic fibres resistant to high temperatures. All body parts that have been in contact with the preparation must be washed.12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION.There are no tested data available on the preparation. The product must not be allowed to go into sewers or waterways. Prevent penetration into the ground. Prevent the emission of solvents into the atmosphere.13. ELIMINATION CONSIDERATIONS. Dumping into sewers or waterways is prohibited. Waste and empty containers must be handled and eliminated according to current, local/national legislation.
I hope the quote police don't ding me on the MSDS for

So you have to get the water to creep up sideways to the other water to put the fire out.I suspect water might (just) burn in an atmosphere of fluorine.
No, it still doesn't make sense.There is absolutely no mechanism by which drinking water of arbitrarily high purity will cause any harm.

Actually this is not true. There is a well documented medical condition called hypotremonia. Your blood has the same salt content as your cells typically. When you don't consume enough salt with your water, it results in an imbalance. The higher level of salt in the cytoplasm induces osmosis, and causes cells to swell with extra water. In the case of brain cells, there is no way to relieve the increasing pressure. This leads in turn to catastrophic organ failure, unless highly invasive surgery is underwent immediately. If you want to know more then look it up on Wikipedia. There are several people who die from this condition every year in the US.Water Overdose.... crazy world...
or what would happen to someone who fasted for 40 days on just distilled water?
