Water Scams

Drinking Water Scams Revealed

Read this article before you consider paying for your drinking water.

Wouldn’t it be nice to stop poisoning ourselves with polluted or unhealthy drinking water? I, for one, felt that I would love to find a source of safe inexpensive drinking water. (Ideally, I’d love to turn on the tap, and out it would flow!)

Whether it’s curing cancer with magnets or herbal wonder-remedies or something else, we’ve all seen the fantastic claims people make about their health products and about how your whole life will be changed. I can tell you right now that 90% are frauds. You may even have fallen prey to some of these scams, selling you the latest fad. Me too. I’ve bought so many kinds of drinking water, I can’t recall. (If a lie is repeated often enough, it becomes “the truth”.)

Finally, after many disappointments I got FED UP. I decided to get to the bottom of this desire we all have to make sure that our most basic nutrient – water – won’t make us sick.

I checked out endless commercial websites and a number of university and governmental websites; and I was dismayed at what I repeatedly found:

• Outdated information or info repeated from other websites
• Wild and sensational claims
• No research
• No refunds, etc.

(I already knew that we can’t trust our tap water because of the presence of up to 2000 contaminants.)

Specifically, I found:

a) Bottled water: a real mish-mash of quality, often no more than filtered tap water sold at outrageous mark-ups.

b) Reverse-Osmosis and Distilled Water: completely ignored the medical evidence of the dangers in the ongoing drinking of water that is void of minerals, acid in nature, and oxidizing.

I quickly realized that these products were either useless, overpriced or potentially harmful long-term. And the companies were smiling all the way to the bank.

Nevertheless I was able to find products that were well-researched and legitimate: water ionizers and certain water filters. I found two websites providing comparison reviews of various water purification systems: www.waterfiltercomparisons.net and www.waterpurifier101.com. (While the first of these sites does not address the problem of acidity in drinking water, it is straightforward in its assessment of what various water filters do.)

I hope that you’re not misled by false claims, and take a look at these resources, for the sake of your health.

One component of the water is the acidic water the other alkaline water. It is said that extended use of ionized alkaline water is the secret to fighting aging and a number of degenerative illnesses..How it works Using an or alkaline regular tap water is essentially separated into two different parts at a molecular level.

Thanks Bill for the comparison of different water ionizers and water filters.
In my opinion is alkaline water better then tap water. I have seen many people who feel much better when they drink ionized alkaline water.What’s your opinion about alkaline water?
