I haven't noticed that.  But if it is true there are two quite different
possible explanations:  First, that the use of RO or filtered water causes
the problems; secondly, that people who have problems turn to RO or filtered
water in an attempt to solve them.  I think the second explanation is more
likely to explain a correlation (if there is one).

I think most of us who use RO or filtered water do so to get rid of things
in our water, not because we want to add stuff to the water.
