And where did you pull this from? A world of difference in trying to alter your body's ph level by consuming this Kangen Water and how your body works to absorb nutrients from your food. Our bodies are hardwired to maintain a ph level of 7.35 to 7.45 just like it is hardwired to maintain our temperature at 98.6 degrees.
If the pH of your blood falls below 7.35, the result is a condition called acidosis, a state that leads to central nervous system depression. Severe acidosis - where blood pH falls below 7.00 - can lead to a coma and even death.
If the pH of your blood rises above 7.45, the result is alkalosis. Severe alkalosis can also lead to death, but through a different mechanism - alkalosis causes all of the nerves in your body to become hypersensitive and over-excitable, often resulting in muscle spasms, nervousness, and convulsions; it's usually the convulsions that cause death in severe cases.
Now maybe you want to justify the expense of 4 to 5k you spent for the alkaline water hoax but that's your paycheck. Just don't expect us to jump on the same train with you when there is a world of difference between myth and fact.
In fact I will even give you a list of alkaline producing foods you can eat that will give you vitamins and minerals, which the water won't and give you nutrition, which again the water won't.
Watermelon
Lemons
Cantaloupe
Celery
Limes
Mango
Honeydew
Papaya
Parsley
Seaweed
Sweet, seedless grapes
Watercress
Asparagus
Kiwi
Pears
Pineapple
Raisins
Vegetable juices
Apples
Apricots
Alfalfa sprouts
Avocados
Bananas
Garlic
Ginger
Peaches
Nectarines
Grapefruit
Oranges
Most herbs
Peas
Lettuce
Broccoli
Cauliflower
If you feel the need to "alkalize" your body, then by all means eat these and you will be much better off and have a lot more money in your wallet.
This is true;however, when you live in a city with water at an acidic level, the short term effects could cause some concern (as you so graciously pointed out). Any type of filter, such as the alkaline water, which can be purchased for much leads than $4,000, eliminates acid waste. By flushing them away, body balance is restored, eliminating headaches and stomach pains caused by acidic water. Also, studies have shown that long-term ailments such as diabetes, high blood pressure, constipation, obesity, indigestion, and rheumatism can be avoided (by encouraging people to drink water instead of caffeinated/carbonated beverages). And I'm sure you'd agree with that. With all this being said, if you have the ability to filter out the chemicals your local government places in your tap water along with the encouragement to drink more water (saving money from store bought beverages), why would you be negative about something positive to promote human health? Over the long-term, depending on your stage in life, real easy-to-see benefits can be witnessed firsthand.

If you want to drink the water, then by all means go ahead and do so, I've done enough research to know that it is all hoakum. Even on their website it states "In the United States we are not allowed to claim that Kangen water will actually do all of these things". Because it isn't true they can't claim it to be fact. When the AMA or John's Hopkins releases studies that will corroborate the pseudoscience behind the alkaline water miracle cures, I'll start believing in it.

And that'll be great for you to believe such studies, if proven. That would show that you are open-minded. Also, please note that, with the subjects in use has only been available for the past 5 or 10 years, understand that long-term benefits can not be proven at this point, as it'll take an entire generation to do so. Not because "it isn't true, they can't claim it to be fact." Instant gratification to prove or disprove the benefits of kangen water can not be given as an argument to argue for nor against its positive effects.

But what can be proven is that quality filters can be purchased for around $1200 to $2500, and its use can save these estimated amounts by avoiding other beverage purchases within a 2-year window, pending a 4-person household.

You must be the local MLM Kangen Water store owner. Like I said all of this has been debunked but if by some slight chance that the AMA, FDA, John's Hopkins, or CDC comes out with concrete evidence that Kangen Water does all of this, then I will get on the bandwagon, until then try to sell all the units you can while you can before the people wise up. Until then, I'll leave you with this, http://www.chem1.com/CQ/ionbunk.html . Read and enjoy.

No, I'm not. But I'm someone that reads more than one article, takes both sides into perspective, and forms my own opinion. I suggest you do the same before you blow your money on useless junk or miss out on a great opportunity.

Kinda funny that many municipalities have dentists and healthcare folks lobbying along with huge groups of peasants to the point of convincing the local governments to remove the fluoride all the while El Do waits until this tipping point in the rest of society and most of Europe to add it. How backward is this town and this state? If the government of Ark says shave your ass and walk backwards with the pockets cut-out, I'm convinced the majority of Arkies will not only do it but find reasons why it's necessary.

When the state says it wants to help your teeth and now your healthcare, I'll choose the opposite of anything they are trying to "help" anytime.

How hard is it to understand that state law required that el dorado fluoridate the water or face massive fines for not doing so? Any water utility that serves over 5000 people must do so. And you can thank the dentists and lobbyist for getting the law passed since they feel that
there may be some poor disadvantaged child somewhere that the only dental care they will ever get is fluoridated water. El Dorado is innocent one this one, blame the dentists and their lobbyists.

Dude on CoasttoCoastAM just said that Prozac ( Fluoxetine ) is 18.4% by molecular weight fluorine and that fluorine is found in all the psychotropic drugs.

So all your information is from some guy on AM radio at 3 AM? Obviously you never took a chemistry class once in your life. Fluorine is not the same as fluoride. But by your same logic (a word that may be too big for you), oxygen must be bad because it is in most psychotropic drugs, too. Thanks for helping Arkansas move past the image of being filled with a bunch of toothless, ignorant hillbillies.

Maybe, maaabeee, they can get a grant to build a FEMA reeducation camp here. Then they can force us to drink fluoridated water while they work us from dawn till dark digging Lake Frank with wooden bladed shovels.
