Nitrates in our Water At Dangerous Levelsūüí¶

As you know I am an advocate of ¬†humans drinking the purest water that is available to us in all walks of life. We can of course with the right equipment. We can blame our illnesses on many things, like we do, ¬†such as Roundup, nitrates, fluoride, Stress and just breathing but I don’t believe we can nail just one of these poisons that causes cancer or any other illness. I think its all of them because you will find them in our drinking water.

So it does not matter how healthy you eat , if your drinking water is contaminated with this stuff then you are wasting your time and money.

This is an interesting story about nitrates in our water that was published on the Fox News.

Millions of tons of nitrate from industrial farming find their way into America’s drinking water each year, causing thousands of cases of cancer and other health problems

In a new report, researchers from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) quantify the risk. They say nitrate is responsible for nearly 12,600 cases of cancer a year.

(That is true as I lived many years in a cane growing area in Australia so I saw for myself the amount of bags and bags of fertilizer  put into the soil and spraying of crops over those years. In fact I always used to say that it was not soil the sugar was growing in, it was just fertilizer. Consequently I noted also over the years how many children were born with deformities, health problems and terminal illnesses in their latter years. )

“Industrialized farming relies heavily on nitrate fertilizers that can run off into the water table used by drinking water utilities,” said Sydney Evans, a science analyst at EWG.

The report said 80% of the nitrate-related cancers were colorectal, with ovarian, thyroid, kidney and bladder cancer accounting for the rest. Treatment costs up to $1.5 billion a year, according to the report.

Nitrate is hard and costly to filter out of water.  Some towns and cities, however, do remove it and pass along the cost to residents.

Private wells can also have high nitrate levels. People who rely on well water have to spend thousands of dollars to add reverse osmosis systems if they want to remove nitrate.

(Now on saying this If you have a Kangen Water machine you understand it is primarily a water Ionizer. It also filters out chlorine, fluoride, lead and most other common type contaminants. To filter out the likes of nitrates etc,  you need a pre filter for the machine. It is not expensive but recommended if you find you have a high count of nitrates in your water or any of the following poisons in your water. If you have not got a Kangen Water machine then for the health of your family I suggest you get one. )

 

 

ULTRA E PRE FILTER SET

The Ultra-E Submicron Depth Filtration Series is manufactured using a proprietary, patented, electro-absorptive media technology, and is capable of removing submicron pathogens and inorganic contaminants through electro-adhesion and ion exchange.

This technology makes it possible for a nonwoven media to product filtration efficiency comparable to ultramembrane filtration but at very low pressure drop, with high flow rates and high loading capacity working equally well in fresh, brackish or salt waters.

The media in the Ultra-E filter is NSF 61-approved.

Filter will pass up to 1500 gallons of water

Comes with Filter and Housing

 

The ULTRA-E filter reduces, or removes the following pathogens:
>99.99% of viruses (pollo, rotavirus, norovirus, etc.)**
>99.99% of bacteria ( e coli, legionella, pseudomonas, etc.)**
>99.95% of cysts (giardia, cryptosporidium, etc.)**
** Tested by a certified laboratory in the U.S. (testing was done at 6.5pH)

The Ultra-E filter removes or reduces the following heavy metals:
>95% Lead **
>90% Ferrous Iron **
>95% Arsenic V **
>95% Cadmium **
>85% Chromium **
>75% Selenium **
>60% Mercury
** Tested by a certified laboratory in the U.S. (testing was done at 6.5pH)

The ULTRA-E filter removes, or reduces the following organic and inorganic chemicals:
VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
PCBs and BPA
Residual pharmaceuticals
Bio-fouling precursors: organic acids, proteins, polysaccharides

Study of Alkaline Ionized Water – Excretion of Melamine

 

alkaline-ionized-water-food-guide-pyramid1

There has been several studies on many aspects of Alkaline Ionized Water regarding the health of the body  made by:-

1.Department of Environmental Medical Biology, Wonju College of Medicine, Yonsei University, Wonju, Korea
2. Institute for Poverty Alleviation and International Development, Yonsei University, Wonju, Korea
3. Department of Ophthalmic Optics, Chodang University,1644, Muanro, Muaneup, Muangun, Jeollanamdo, Korea

One of these studies showed that Alkaline Ionized Water had beneficial effects in excreting melamine in the body and reduced the incidence of urinary bladder stone caused by melamine accumulation(22). AIW exhibits high pH that affects the clustering of its water molecules hence producing reduced water cluster size. It is therefore suggested that this micro- cluster molecule makes the AIW efficiently enter and increase intracellular hydration, aid in flushing out and preventing wastes such as unnecessary materials from accumulating in the cell.

This compound Melamine became headline news recently after the occurrence of an outbreak of urinary stones in infants and children consuming melamine-tainted milk in China. The nephrotoxic effects of melamine now warrant the attention of nephrologists, pediatricians, urologists, and radiologists.

This is just one of the studies that have been done on the benefits of Alkaline Ionized Water. I will be intermittently  writing about other health benefits of Alkaline Ionized Water on my blog which I find and I am sure you will also, very interesting.

I am always interested in anything that will help alleviate or prevent any health problems that people may have. The excretion of melamine is one of them that is for sure.
Of course as you know we have one of these Alkaline Ionized Water machines which I absolutely love and can’t live with out literally (well sort of). We also sell the machines and there is a great business opportunity connected with them as well. You are not only selling a great and proven product, it is solid product sales not a MLM scheme or any other scheme.
