After oxygen, nothing is more important to your body’s survival than ‘healthy’ water.
But what does ‘healthy’ water mean?
Healthy water means the water has been filtered, is not carbonated, has a pH over 8, and if possible, is ionized.
Water out of our taps, as most people know, is not the purest water to drink, and many large and small corporations alike are taking advantage of that knowledge with the fear they have generated about drinking tap water.
They spend hundreds of millions of dollars yearly spewing out propaganda that your tap water is dangerous to drink. Not true. It is just as safe to drink as theirs.
Bottled water has become a multi-billion dollar business for these corporations and is probably one of the biggest frauds ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.
Why? Because most of the bottled water sold is nothing more than filtered tap water and not any better than the water you are now getting out of your tap. In addition, so many of these bottled waters have a low pH as well as a high bacteria count.
There is very little regulation that goes on in the bottled water industry.
The biggest bottlers of water are Coco Cola, Pepsi and Nestles, all of whom fill their bottles with plain ordinary tap water and the price they charge for this water is an incredible rip-off.
Bottled water is bad for another important reason. The plastic used to manufacture the bottles they use is made with a plasticizer that is carcinogenic. Stored in temperatures of 80ºF for any length of time, which happens every summer, this plasticizer leaches into the water. You drink it because you can’t see it or taste it.
Here’s how the pH of the water you drink stacks up:
- Acidic waters are detrimental to your health (pH 3-6).
- Neutral waters are neutral to your health (pH 6.5-7.5)
- Alkaline waters are beneficial to your health (pH 8-10)
Before we continue with water, let me tell you about other beverages that are also consumed in large quantities and are especially bad for your health. They are beverages like Coca-cola, Pepsi-cola and other colas.
Their pH is a super low, 2.3. Now don’t get me wrong, there are good uses for these colas. If you need to clean corrosion off your battery terminals, just pour cola over them. It does an incredible job. I know, I have done this with my battery terminals. Colas are also great if you want to remove varnish from your floor. Does an excellent job there as well.
If you check other sodas, you will find their pH to be in the range of 3, an acid level that does no good for your body.
Being on a bottled water kick can become expensive as well, especially if you are drinking as much water as you should.
A better way is to become your own bottled water producer. Install an under-the-sink water filter and you will do better than the majority of bottled waters being offered, and at a fraction of the cost.
These water filters are available at Home Depot, Lowes, your local hardware store, or you can type in “under-the-sink-water filters” on Google. You will find great selections at all price ranges that will give you better drinking water at a fraction of the cost of bottled water.
For the ultimate in drinking water, go to our web site where we offer counter top and under-the-sink water ionizers. These units will filter and raise the pH of your tap water, ionize your water so that your water will hydrate your body six times faster than regular tap water, and neutralize free oxygen radicals in your body.
To your good heath & longevity.
