Now You Can Get Healthier Simply By Drinking Water
What You Don’t Know About Your Drinking Water May Be Dangerous
A study released by Ralph Nader’s Center for Study of Responsive Law in Washingt
on, DC, shows that much of the nation’s drinking water is unsafe: Tests conducte
d in 38 states found over 2,000 toxic chemicals in the drinking water. About 10%
of these chemicals are associated with causing cancer, cell growths, neurologic
al damage, and birth defects. Thousands of chemicals found in our water supplies
have never even been tested for safety.
A joint study by the EPA and the National Academy of Sciences has attributed 200
–1,000 US deaths each year to the inhalation of chloroform from water while bath
So what’s in the water Americans are drinking? Here is a partial list of the unw
elcome additions that have been found in drinking water.
• arsenic is a known carcinogen and poison
• asbestos is a known carcinogen
• cadmium causes arteriosclerosis, kidney damage, and cancer
• lead causes learning disabilities in children
• mercury causes nervous system and kidney damage
• nitrites are a possible carcinogen that also interferes with body’s oxygen met
• viruses and bacteria
• toxic chemicals
• 1,1,1-trichloroethane causes liver damage and depression
• 1,1-dichlorethylene causes depressed central nervous system and cancer
• benzene causes chromosomal damage in humans, anemia, blood disorders, and leuk
• chloroform causes cancer
• dioxin is an extremely toxic carcinogen
• ethylene dibromide causes male sterility and cancer
• polychlorinated biphyls [PCB] causes liver damage, skin disorders, and GI prob
lems and is highly suspected of causing cancer
A vast array of pharmaceuticals — including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood
stabilizers and sex hormones — have been found in the drinking water supplies of
at least 41 million Americans, an Associated Press investigation shows.
To be sure, the concentrations of these pharmaceuticals are tiny, measured in qu
antities of parts per billion or trillion, far below the levels of a medical dos
e. Also, utilities insist their water is safe.
But the presence of so many prescription drugs — and over-the-counter medicines
like acetaminophen and ibuprofen — in so much of our drinking water is heighteni
ng worries among scientists of long-term consequences to human health.
In the course of a five-month inquiry, the AP discovered that drugs have been de
tected in the drinking water supplies of 24 major metropolitan areas — from Sout
hern California to Northern New Jersey, from Detroit to Louisville, KY.
Officials in Philadelphia said testing there discovered 56 pharmaceuticals or by
products in treated drinking water, including medicines for infection, pain, hig
h cholesterol, asthma, epilepsy, mental illness and heart problems. Sixty-three
pharmaceuticals or byproducts were found in the city s watersheds.
Anti-epileptic and anti-anxiety medications were detected in a portion of the tr
eated drinking water for 18.5 million people in Southern California.
Researchers at the U.S. Geological Survey analyzed a Passaic Valley Water Commis
sion drinking water treatment plant, which serves 850,000 people in Northern New
Jersey, and found a metabolized angina medicine and the mood-stabilizing carbam
azepine in drinking water.
_A sex hormone was detected in San Francisco s drinking water.
_The drinking water for Washington, D.C., and surrounding areas tested positive
for six pharmaceuticals.
Do I really need to continue? I think you get the message. Our drinking water is
not safe! A hot shower or bath can increase your exposure to toxic chemicals by
400 percent.

Consumers typically buy bottled water under the misconception that it is safer,
purer or healthier than tap water. Bottled water companies have spent billions t
o manipulate consumers into believing that bottled water is safer or healthier t
han tap water.
Dr. Leo Trasande of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine explains the dangers of p
lastic water bottles and which ones are the safest on MSNBC, April 9, 2008:
Bottled Water s environmental impact:
0. 60 Million plastic bottles a day are disposed of in America alone!
0. Massive amounts of greenhouse gases are produced from manufacturing the plas
tic bottles.
0. Millions of gallons of fuel are wasted daily transporting filtered tap water
across America and around the world.
0. It requires 3 times as much water to make the bottle as it does to fill it..
. it is an exceptionally wasteful industry.
Studies show that bottled water is contaminated with bacteria and/or synthetic c
"It is impossible to get chemical-free water from a plastic bottle or from the t
ap. A home water purifier is the only sure solution for clean healthy water... "
_-Charles Strand, author of the book All About Water and Editor of WaterWarning
"There is no logical explanation for regular bottled water use: It costs more, o
ffers less and pollutes our planet unforgivingly..." _-Dr. Julian Whitaker _
A simple solution to plastic water bottle pollution:
Home water filtration is the most logical, most economical, most convenient and
healthiest alternative to tap or bottled water. With home water filtration you c
an pick the degree of purity you want and have complete control over it. Conside
ring the extreme importance of healthy, chemical free water, a quality home wate
r filter system may be the most valuable home appliance you can invest in.
Water Filter Systems
In the past I’ve recommended and used reverse osmosis home water filters. Howeve
r, in the past few months of trial and research, I’ve found that ionized water i
s the best choice, far and away better tan other water filter systems.
My Experience With Health Enriching Ionized Water
I was first made aware of Kangen Water in 2008, but it wasn’t until a friend of
mine, using the water and got dramatic health enriching results, that I really d
id my homework on this amazing water device. Hugh’s incredible health turn aroun
d was very impressive, but it took another miraculous cure, this time my wife’s
chronic eczema (after 2 weeks of drinking the water), to convince me to watch th
e DVD and read the ebook, which you can see view yourself at www.watermagicinfo.
My wife Jill had battled eczema on her hands for the last four years. It was ini
tiated by changing diapers and no amount of cream, lotions or ointments made a d
ifference-her hands dried out and peeled continuously. Her eczema was so bad she
started wearing gloves to change Ridges diapers. It got better 2 years ago, whe
n Ridge was potty trained, but quickly returned one year ago when my son Harris
was born.
Hugh lent us a Kangen Water machine and within 2 weeks Jill was and still is com
pletely free of her eczema. It has now been 2 months and no eczema! Her results
were simply from drinking the water.
I’ve found the Kangen Water, which has 10 times the antioxidant effects as gree
n tea, has helped me have more energy, need less sleep (a good thing at my house
with a 1, 4 and 12 year old), and people keep telling me my skin looks great. O
k I’m vain, I admit it, it feels good to hear, at 48 years old, your skin looks
great and get asked- “what are you doing?”
Ionized Water
Ionized, restructured water supplies the body with extra free electrons that can
be used to help neutralize disease causing free radicals. Kangen Water has an a
lkaline Ph along with a strong Negative ORP or oxidative reduction potential-whi
ch makes it a very potent antioxidant. Soft drinks, sports drinks and even most
bottled waters, have acidic ph and positive ORP-that means they’re not antioxida
nts, they’re actually oxidizing your body.
Ph ORP $/Liter
Perrier- 3.4 +457 $3.87
Dasani 4.9 +521 $1.89
Aquafina 5.2 +542 $1.92
Tap water 7.0 +370 n/a
Kangen Water 9.5 -470 $.06

We drink water every day; we depend on it for our survival. But what if you coul
d use the same water you need to drink anyway and load your body up with cancer
preventing, disease fighting, and age defying antioxidants? What if you could ch
ange your body’s chemistry by changing the water you drink? What if I told you m
illions of people are getting miraculous health benefits by simple drinking Kang
en Water on a daily basis?
It sounds to good, to practical, to simple to be true. Is it? Visit Hugh’s site and watch the videos, especially the 2 demonstration vide
os, these are the ones that convinced me that I needed to switch from my reverse
osmosis filtration system and get the Kangen Water system.
Eighteen percent of Japanese households are using the Kangen water system in the
ir house-impressive until you learn that every Japanese hospital uses where they
’re considered a medical device due to their health enriching affects.

Hugh also has a site that goes into detail about health specific conditions that
typically respond to Kangen Water including eczema (atopic dermatitis), diabete
s (great for diabetes), high blood pressure, and more-
