Markus Rothkranz interviews James Sloan about how terrible Alkaline Ionized Water is to consume. Lot’s of misinformation and innuendo get DEBUNKED here. So many people have been mislead by this video. They only talk about alkalinity and ONLY say bad things about it.
To be perfectly honest with you it boils my blood to hear http://watershed.net/Water-Ionizers/, the healthiest substance we can possible consume, described as snake oil and a scam. The main reason is because this kind of thinking plants doubt into the minds of so many people that it leads them to the decision never to purchase a Water Ionizer, never to drink Ionized Water, and never to make a part of their daily lives. To me, Ionized Water is the bread of life. I thrive on it. As you will see below, none of the detractors of Ionized Water have ever consumed it or bothered to measure it’s pH or ORP. If they did, they would find Ionized Water to be the healthiest substance we can consume.
I am considered a “crank” by some, which is aptly defined by Mark Twain as “a person with a new idea until it succeeds.” Without fail, there are those who attempt to debunk great advances in every scientific field and Ionized Water is no exception. Continental plate tectonics was ridiculed when it was proposed by Alfred Wegene in 1912. Now it’s established fact. The same will be with Ionized Water. It too will one day become established fact taught in every school. Debunkers suggest that the ionization of water simply isn’t possible. One debunker states that Ionized Water should be dismissed simply because it is too good to be true. Others state that ionization is impossible to verify when in fact its properties are demonstrated using scientific measuring devices such as pH and ORP meters because the changes that ionization produce are radical, immediate and measurable.
Debunkers contend that most new health technologies developed outside of the traditional medical establishment are worthless and have no value beyond their hype. They claim that nearly every unusual invention that doesn’t easily fit into the framework of conventional thinking turns out to be yet another urban myth that needs to be debunked. And if something that they have denounced turns out to have merit, not another word is ever said about it and the debunker’s web page is quietly removed.
I have been hearing for years what a scam Ionized Water is. I have heard it called “snake oil on tap”, yet no one has ever called for them to be removed from the market. Alkaline Water, Alkalized Water, Kangen Water, Miracle Water, Micro Water, Ion Water, Ionic Water, Electron Water, Electrolyzed Water: It’s all the same. Water that has been electrolyzed is most commonly called Ionized Water. And for some reason there is a great deal of opposition to it. Recently Dr. J. Mercola denounced Ionized Water. Dr. Andrew Weil has also found some excuse to dismiss ionized water. In fact, he did it twice. I am not a “believer” in Ionized Water anymore than I am a believer that the world is round and not flat. To have a belief Ionized Water and its positive effects on the health of those who consume it is a fact and not a “belief”. It is a fact what ionization does to the pH, ORP and structure of water it ionizes. I don’t have faith that raw fruits and vegetables are healthy for us, I understand it as a fact. The same is true for Ionized Water. I wrote the book on it.
