Can the minerals and other contaminants in drinking water build up in your arteries similar to how fat will build up?

I ask this because I notice mineral deposits on my water faucet and wonder– if those minerals can stick to the faucet, can they also stick to the inside of your body?

    The minerals found commonly in tap water are inorganic, and are of no nutritional value to the body.  Doctor Norman Walker states that statistically, over the course of 70 years the average person will consume between 200 and 300 pounds of rock.  Some of that remains in the body and can lead to kidney stones, gallstones and arterial blockages.  Common minerals found in city drinking water are calcium, magnesium and lime.
