Water Without Minerals
Not All Purified Water Is Healthy
Demineralised water is highly aggressive, it attacks the water distribution piping and leaches metals and other materials from the pipes. It is also devoid of the crucial nutritional value of minerals and trace elements essential for the human body.
Health Concerns Of RO Water
Reverse Osmosis Water is demineralised water and not sutable for human consumption. Drinking demineralised water results in flushing out essential minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
Lack of calcium and magnesium can also cause some types of cancer. Our bodies rely on these ionic minerals and trace elements to conduct and generate billions of tiny electrical impulses. Vitamins cannot function without the presence of minerals. Without minerals nothing in your body would function! Even the function of your heart and brain impaired. Good drinking water should contain all essential minerals and essential trace elements.
Health Risks attributed to drinking demineralised (Reverse Osmosis) water:
- Pre-term birth
- Some types of cancer
- Neurodegenerative diseases
- Increased diuresis, around 20%
- Hyponatremic shock or delirium
- Decreases bio-electrical impulses
- Morphological changes in the kidneys
- Increased mortality from cardiovascular disease
- Low weight at birth
- Eliminates electrolytes
- Increased body water volume
- Hyponatremic shock or delirium
- Increased secretion of cortisol
- Higher risk of fracture in children
- Reduced skeletal ossification in fetuses
- Swollen vascular endothelium limiting the blood flow
Water is life, without minerals Water has no life. It is dead and hungry water and will not hydrate the human body.
HEALTH RISKS from COOKING with REVERSE OSMOSIS water
When cooking vegetables in Reverse Osmosis (demineralised, ‘dead’) water, a negative osmotic pressure is created in the vegetables which causes it to transfer all of its minerals into the water. That is, the vegetable would lose all its minerals which would transfer to the water, which is then thrown away into the sink. As a result, you would be eating vegetables lacking any essential minerals. Epidemiological studies confirm that consumption of low mineral food and drinking water is a risk factor for hypertension and coronary heart disease, gastric and duodenal ulcers, chronicgastritis, goitre, pregnancy complications and several complications in infants.
High loss of calcium, magnesium and other essential elements in food prepared with water having a low mineral level. If demineralised water is used for cooking it can cause substantial loss of all essential minerals from food. Since the current diet of many people does not provide all the necessary elements in sufficient quantities,it is important not to lose essential minerals and nutrients during cooking. Also, there is an increased risk of bacteria contamination from low-mineral water. Bacterial re-growth is encouraged by the lack of the of minerals in the aggressive demineralised water.
Health Concerns Of Ozonated Water
OZONE (O3) HEALTH RISKS
Water CANNOT be OZONE O3 ENRICHED
Ozone is highly volatile and will dissipate completely out of water in less than 30min. The oxygen level in water will always be exactly the same before and after ozonation. Ozone is a very aggressive and is normally used for bleaching substances and as a disinfectant to kill micro-organisms in water sources. Reverse Osmosis water is “dead” or “hungry” water and will react with anything, especially bacteria in the air of water tanks, hence the need to kill possible bacteria through ozonation. When ozone breaks down to dioxygen, oxygen free radicals, which are highly reactive and capable of damaging many organic molecules. It is believed that the powerful oxidizing properties of ozone may be a contributing factor of inflammation.
DANGERS from OZONE (O3) in water
Filtering ozone gas through water may create a chemical compound called “bromate”, which can cause:
- Abdominal Pains
- Hearing impairment
- Kidney failure
In 2004 Coca-Cola had to withdraw it’s bottled water called Dasani from the UK market; it was found to contain excessive bromate levels caused by ozonation. Bromates are found in disinfected drinking water where ozone is used as a method of disinfection. The level of bromate is dependant on the amount of bromate found in the source water, the dosage of ozone and the pH of the water. All natural water sources contain bromide.
Health Concerns Of High or Low pH Water
The human body is designed to be 7.365pH alkaline. So the water that you drink must be alkaline.
Although a pH higher than 8.6 may produce negative side effects. Such as the lowering of natural stomach acidity, which helps kill bacteria and expel other undesirable pathogens from entering your bloodstream. Gastrointestinal issues and skin irritations can also be caused by an overall excess of alkalinity in the body.
Too high alkalinity can also irritate the body’s normal pH, that can lead to metabolic alkalosis, a condition that may produce the following symptoms:
- Hand tremors
- Muscle twitching
- Tingling in the extremities or face
On the other hand, low acidic pH is not healthy either.
A pH lower than 7.365 may also produce negative side effects. The lungs and kidneys can normally neutralise slight pH imbalances, but excess acid in your body can be caused by cases where one or both of these organs are compromised. Any excessive acidic substance, even with both organs working may lead to a more acidic blood pH.
When the body has a low acidic blood pH, it can lead to Metabolic acidosis, a condition that may produce the following symptoms:
- Rapid and shallow breathing
- Lack of appetite
- Increased heart rate
- Breath that smells fruity, which is a sign of diabetic acidosis (ketoacidosis)
Health Concerns of Artificial
Alkaline Water and Distilled Water
Natural alkalinity occurs when water gets infused with minerals and trace elements.
However, there is a chemical process called electrolysis that forces the water’s pH to increase. According to them, an ionizer is used to separate more acidic or more alkaline molecules in the water. Removing the acidic molecules leaving you with alkaline water. To ensure that no contaminants are present after ionization the water should go through the preferred Reverse Osmosis purification process. That removes not only contaminants but the minerals as well.
“A study published by the World Health Organization Trusted Source cautions against drinking water with low mineral content, which is created by reverse osmosis, distillation, and other methods (without additional mineralization) on a regular basis.”
Health Concerns of Natural Spring
and Bore Hole Water
Untreated water in particularly bore (borehole) water, river water or spring water including mineral springs can lead to sicknesses such as gastroenteritis and diarrhoea. Due to unknowingly drinking hidden contaminants, natural water sources are no longer safe.
Drinking contaminated water for long periods of time may lead to chronic health issues. There are four types of contaminants that can enter your drinking water: microbial pathogens like salmonella and dysentery, organic compounds like pesticides and solvents, inorganic compounds like arsenic and lead, and radioactive elements like radon and uranium.
Microbes can lead to illness from first consumption, causing symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps. Whereas the other three types of contaminants usually take longer to show symptoms, these contaminants can build up and cause more severe problems like thyroid disease and cancer.
Drinking contaminated water will overload your body with toxins, placing stress on your organs and hindering the elimination process.
