Alkaline Water and Your Health

There are lots of testimonials about alkaline water benefits. Are they fact or fiction? We thought that we might just look into the issue of alkaline water and your health. And, specifically, will look at the Kangen alkaline water machine to see what it can for your health and well-being. But first, of all, could your water be a problem and, if so, what can you do about it?

Is Bad Water a Problem?

You bet it is. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the ultimate authority in the USA and in the world on public health matters. They say this about contaminated water.

The presence of contaminants in water can lead to adverse health effects, including gastrointestinal illness, reproductive problems, and neurological disorders. Infants, young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people whose immune systems are compromised because of AIDS, chemotherapy, or transplant medications, may be especially susceptible to illness from some contaminants.

The problem may be at the source where the water was drawn from or somewhere in the distribution system but the results are the same. Bad water is a problem.

The CDC lists the ten top causes of public system outbreaks.

  • Giardia
  • Legionella
  • Norovirus
  • Shigella
  • Campylobacter
  • Copper
  • Salmonella
  • Hepatitis A
  • Cryptosporidium
  • E. coli, excess fluoride (tie)

This list shows outbreaks of infectious diseases from public water systems but there is more to bad water than infection. Did you know that in a city like Minneapolis that draws its water from the Mississippi River that estrogens or female hormones pass through their water treatment system untouched? Herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, all seep into the soil and down to the water table from where they are drawn into a city’s water supply. None of these contaminants is good to drink and contaminants like lead are especially dangerous to growing children and everyone’s nervous system.

The point of our discussion so far is that it is a good idea to have a home system that filters your water and removes more contaminants. That is the first step of an alkaline water system like the Kangen water system.

Water That Is Just OK versus Alkaline Water Benefits

Once you have a good water supply and an adequate water filtering and treatment system, is that all you need? If your goal is to remove lead, avoid having infectious agents in your water, or not have your growing boys drinking female hormones with every glass of water, the Kangen water system will do this for you.

The next point of our discussion is that the alkaline water benefits of a system like Enagic manufactures for producing Kangen water are decidedly worth the effort required in investigating the Kangen water system.

Kangen water systems do more than just provide great drinking water. A Kangen alkaline water machine produces five types of water. From strong alkaline water for disinfecting and cleaning to strongly acidic water for disinfectant purposes with stops in between for water that helps skin tone and hair care or is ideal for taking medications, the Kangen system goes far beyond the typical water filtration and treatment system.

The Health Benefits of Kangen Water
