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”. Continue reading

Why the “Quack Watchers” Need to be Watched

We’ve all seen the websites of the self-proclaimed debunkers of faux science and other myths. They explain to us that, except for the things we personally know to be true, everything we believe to be true is completely false. Almost every rumor we have heard turns out to be an urban myth when it comes to the Quack Watchers and other debunkers. And if something that they denounced turns out to be true, not another word is ever said about it and the debunking web page is quietly removed. Continue reading

We disagree on several other minor points such as the fact that he doesn’t encourage us to exercise, but others cannot go unchallenged because they are misguided in the most fundamental way. Continue reading
