There is a lot info published to support what chinaski found, and most reference the World Health Organization.  It gave me pause a while back about RO drinking water in my home.  Very tough to know current info or right/wrong for the consumer.  Some of it appears to be spin by carbon filter companies, but the WHO report can also be downloaded.

The WHO is trying not to advocate RO water consumption since there is no reason for people to do so and RO or distilled water production is both water and energy wasteful. In addition, there is only rarely a problem with consuming high TDS drinking water. I don't have a problem with what WHO is trying to do, but there still is no other reason why a person can't drink rainwater, distilled water, or RO water.

This is a link to the WHO report: http://www.who.int/water_sanitation_health/dwq/nutrientschap12.pdf

Doesn't seem like there are any real strong conclusions in the report.
