The Importance of Alkaline Water   Our recent introduction of the “Quantum 6000 System” has generated rave reviews from our customers and those in the Holistic Health Communities. A system that not only totally removes Fluoride but also removes about ninety other contaminants that may be lurking in our Municipal Water Supplies.   The process develops pure “H20 water” which then allows us to infuse all the healthy minerals back in the water just as Mother Nature would do it.  Small in size, Installs under the kitchen sink and produces Healthy Alkaline Water for drinking and cooking.    The three main Benefits: Powerful Antioxidant    Antioxidants are powerful molecules that are excellent for neutralizing free radicals in the body. Free radicals are destructive agents that cause rapid aging and many forms of different diseases.  Since alkaline water is full of antioxidants, it is very good for your immune system in helping to maintain optimum health . Balances your body’s pH level Many people have extremely acidic diets from soft drinks, fast food & processed foods.  Drinking alkaline water with a pH of 8.5-10 helps maintain an environment in our bodies that is disease preventative.  Has a different molecular cluster size Water is clustered; each individual molecule of H2O bonds together instead of remaining as a single molecule.  Tap water contains very large clusters of up to 13 molecules; our alkaline water contains as little as 5 molecules per cluster.  Micro-clustered water is more easily absorbed and can help you regain energy faster.  A common remark is that Alkaline Water tastes smoother than conventional water. I look forward to meeting with you and bringing water for you to taste. Fred DeFelice The Bottled Water Scandal Most Americans believe they are doing a good thing for themselves and their families by purchasing bottled water instead of drinking tap water.  Drinking bottled water may one day be considered the most epic health fallacy of this decade! American consumers spend well over $11.8 billion on bottled water each year, based on 2012 data.  Most people reach for bottled water out of convenience; with the good intention of keeping hydrated while continuing on with their busy, task-filled days.  But, let's stop and rethink this idea! Current research and verified scientific evidence is showing us that the convenience of bottled water is creating serious, long-term effects to our health and well-being! The quality of the water in the bottles (whether they're made from plastic or glass) is just as much an issue as the chemicals which leach into the water from plastic bottles.  The Environmental Working Group™ (EWG) conducted laboratory testing on popular brand-name bottled waters and found the water to contain mixtures of 38 different pollutants, including bacteria, fertilizers, Tylenol, and industrial chemicals, some at levels no better than tap water.  Some even contained high levels of cancer-causing chlorination byproducts.  The sheer number of chemicals detected in bottled water is perhaps the most concerning.  In 2013, German researchers published a study showing a single bottle of water contained up to 24,000 different chemicals.  According to the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, some bottled water risks include fluoride exposure.  Certain bottled waters, specifically for babies, contain additional fluoride.  Let's blow the fluoride myth out of the water!  Take a look around you...how many people do you know that have never had a cavity? The reasoning for why fluoride was added to the water supply in the first place was to reduce the incidence of cavities of the American public.  Contrary to the propaganda that fluoride is a cavity preventer, the truth is that 90% of Americans still have cavities today, indicating that fluoride, as a cavity preventive, is a grossly inefficient product. Fluoride is also a powerful endocrine (glandular)  disruptor which destroys the person's thyroid (causing a loss of energy). The damage done by fluoride forces people to go on synthetic thyroid hormones such as Synthroid®.  In areas where fluoride is added to the water, there are 50% more people who are on Synthroid®.   A recent study found that 11 out of 18 bottled waters sampled induced estrogenic effects in a human cancer cell line.  Dr. Gina Solomon, is a senior scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental advocacy group, told The New York Times that "there is no reason to believe that bottled water is safer than tap water." Even water in glass bottles may not be healthy water. Most bottled water is treated with Reverse Osmosis, which results in mineral-deficient, acidic water. This water sucks minerals out of the body as well as turning the body acidic. Nowadays it is an established fact that it is not good to be overly acidic. The more acidic the individual, the greater the chance he has to develop many diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, and cancer. The bottom line? Recognize that water is the "Kingpin" of your health!  If you want to be healthy and stay healthy you must obtain good drinking water.  Bottled water is convenient but not a good substitute for healthy water. Why Showering is More Dangerous than Drinking Water Although chlorinated tap water can be dangerous when used as drinking water, there are more hazards when this kind of water is used for bathing. On average, you take in one to two gallons of water per day. But when you bathe or shower, you expose yourself to at least 25 gallons of water.  The problem is your skin absorbs anything that touches it, including chlorinated water. Once absorbed, DBPs can go straight to your bloodstream. Your skin does not break down molecules and eliminate contaminants as your digestive system would. According to studies, a 10- minute shower can raise your bloods Trihalomethanes (THM, a common DBP) levels by as much as 700 percent.  What’s worse is chlorine agents in water can vaporize before they hit the floor. When you inhale the steam, these go straight to your lungs. When using hot water, the ill effects of inhalation and skin absorption are magnified. Hot water triggers your pores to open, and hot environments can cause vapors to form much quicker. Chlorine and Your Drinking Water "The drinking of chlorinated water has finally been officially linked to an increased incidence of colon cancer. An epidemiologist at Oak Ridge Associated Universities completed a study of colon cancer victims and non-cancer patients and concluded that the drinking of chlorinated water for 15 years or more was conducive to a high rate of colon cancer." Health Freedom News, January/February 1987 "Long-term drinking of chlorinated water appears to increase a person's risk of developing bladder cancer as much as 80%," according to a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Some 45,000 Americans are diagnosed every year with bladder cancer. St. Paul Dispatch & Pioneer Press, December 17, 1987. Soft Water: Hazardous to Your Health Water softeners were invented to take certain minerals out of the water. The minerals in 'hard' water are healthful but unsightly - they can stain plumbing fixtures, causes spotting on dishware, eventually clog pipes, etc.  Most water softeners simply replace the 'offending' minerals like calcium and magnesium with sodium or potassium (from sodium chloride - table salt - or potassium chloride). We all know that high table salt (sodium chloride) has a tendency to harden the arteries and cause a variety of problems including high blood pressure and heart issues.  The higher the mineral content of the original water, the greater the amount of sodium or potassium in the softened water. Sodium does not stain plumbing or dishware and so the original problem is solved.  Drinking salt-softened water is like dumping some table salt into every glass of water you drink throughout the day. Even if you don't drink the salt- softened water, showering in it is also unhealthful - you exchange about a pint of water in a fifteen-minute hot shower. Because of the salt in the shower water (not to mention the chlorine, chloramines and other toxic chemicals), high blood pressure, kidney stress and other problems can occur from exposure to the sodium in soft water. If you read the fine print, most manufacturers clearly state that you cannot use this type of softened water to water your plants or use it in your aquarium.  It will kill the plants and the fish, but somehow you're supposed to believe that it won't kill you or do you any harm.  Most manufacturers will recommend an option of reverse osmosis filtration to treat your drinking water; however the facts are that the acidity of RO water poses many other health risks.
