Someone once said that life is a race between education and catastrophe.
That statement could not be more true when it comes to educating ourselves about water and its relationship to our health.
A vast array of pharmaceuticals - including antibiotics, anti-convultants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones - have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans, an Associated Press investigation reported recently after a five month-long study.
And that is just the tip of the iceberg.
Despite the small concentrations of pharmaceuticals, and despite water utilities insistence that their water is safe, there is much evidence to the contrary.
The presence of so many prescription drugs and over-the-counter medicines like acetaminophen and ibuprofen that have been flushed down toilets are easily found in much of our drinking water and is heightening worries of long-term health consequences.
Unfortunately, water providers rarely disclose results of pharmaceutical screenings, unless pressed. They claim that the public does not know how to interpret the results and might be unduly alarmed.
Because of information like this, and because of many other abuses of our water system-sewage waste, poisons used in agribusiness, acid rain, industrial and household chemicals just to name a few - I have for many years now gone on record as stating that a good, dependable
water ionizer has already become a necessity for every family in America.
Even users of bottled water and many of the home filtration systems don't necessarily avoid exposure. Bottlers, some of which simply repackage tap water, do not typically treat or test for all toxins, especially pharmaceuticals, according to the industry's main trade group.
I have been researching water for over two decades. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the contamination of our water supply in the US is a clear and present danger. I have personally tested the water supplies of nearly every major city in the U.S. and there is NO safe water to drink that is clean, pure and alkaline. Even the majority of the bottled waters being sold in the U.S. and around the world are questionable at best.
A National Assessment of Tap Water Quality found 260 contaminants in our nation's tap water; 141 of these contaminants have no enforceable safety limits. Of the 141 unregulated contaminants utilities detected in water supplies between 1998 and 2003, 52 are linked to cancer, 41 to reproductive toxicity, 36 to developmental toxicity, and 16 to immune system damage, according to chemical listings in seven standard government and industry toxicity references. Despite the potential health risks, any concentration of these chemicals in tap water is legal, no matter how high.
Clean drinking water is something that the public has pretty much taken for granted for the past hundred years. The public has little idea (perhaps understandably) just how contaminated our drinking water has become.
Our environment has changed, new biological transformations are emerging, drinking-water systems are aging, and governments often seem more interested in ensuring business in the global marketplace than in ensuring the safety and health of the world citizens.
Health scientists throughout the world are now echoing what I have been saying for two decades. When it comes to you health, whether you are trying to reverse an illness, prevent an illness, or simply create the healthiest body possible, the #1 thing you must do is to change your
A good water ionizer must alkalize, ionize, purify and structure the molecules of the water. In order to neutralize and reverse the over-acidity of the body, the pH of our water supply is critical.
What most people do not realize is that underlying all disease or most dis-ease is an acidic condition. More and more medical researchers are beginning to focus on the relationship of acidity in cells, tissues, organs, and blood as highly correlated with many bodily symptoms and complicated disease syndromes.
Having studied water for decades, I have become convinced that the IonWays organization (now AlkaViva) creates the best products on the market from several standpoints: water quality, price, system durability, and customer relations. At our (Dr Robert Young) pH Miracle Center, one can find an Emco Tech Melody water ionizer in every kitchen and guest house. We provide healthy water for family, guests, employees, farm hands, and visitors.
The average healthy person should drink at least 1 quart of water for ever 50 pounds of body weight each day. A person with a serious health challenge should drink a liter for every 30 pounds. People often laugh when I say "we must pee our way to health," but I don't know how much
simpler I can make it.
High pH water such as the water that comes from a good ionizer neutralizes acids throughout the entire body. Since acids underlie all disease entities, nothing makes more sense than neutralizing these acids.
One of my most often quoted statements goes like this: "When the fish is sick, change the water." We don't feed the fish medicine. We give them clean water. When the cells of our body our sick, we must change the water and fluids in which all cells and tissues are bathed.
When we purchase a good ionizer, we actually save money over time when compared with purchasing water from vendors and stores and treating the water to try and improve its quality. I can't think of any investment that is better for a person or a family than a good water ionizer.
