Emma is a great advocate for maintaining an alkaline body for prevention of deterioration of our health.
This is her article below
Microplastics found in 93% of bottled water tested.
In the study mentioned, they tested 259 bottles of water from 11 brands in the United States, Thailand, Mexico, India, Brazil, Indonesia, China, Kenya, and Lebanon – the major brands include Aqua, Aquafina, Dasani, Evian, Nestle Pure Life and San Pellegrino.
The research team found out that 93 percent of all bottles tested contained some sort of microplastic, including polypropylene, polystyrene, nylon, and polyethylene terephthalate.
The shocking part of the study shows that on average, there were 10.4 particles of plastic per litre that were 100 microns (0.10 mm) or bigger.
While smaller particles were also discovered, 314 of them per litre, on average!
Of course, it differs from bottle to bottle: while some contained one, others contained thousands.
How true is the study?
Well, two brands, Nestle and Gerolsteiner, confirmed their internal testing showing their bottled water indeed contained microplastics, even though their internal tests showed much lower levels than that of the study.
I’m not sure how you feel after reading this...
Many research has also established that these plastics can pass through the lining of your gut, and may end up residing within an immune cell in your gut.
And because plastic is not degradable, they could inflict irreversible damage to our digestive system and internal organs.
Leading to diseases like ADHD, autism, a lower sperm count and even certain forms of cancer.
What I would suggest is
1) Avoid bottled water as much as possible.
2) Use a refillable bottle instead.
It’s much safer than the bottled water and it’s environmentally friendly too.
Of course, I would add to this, suggesting you get our Kangen Water machine and then you can be sure you have healthy ionized, 9.5 PH drinking water. I mean we have for years been sold a bill of goods that we need to drink at least 2 liters a day. If you are not drinking proper ionized, alkaline water then yes minerals will be washed from your body and the toxins from the plastic bottles will remain in your body.
Kangen Water® was developed to be a medical device in Japan over 40 years ago and more than three decades of clinical studies have shown that Kangen Water enhances the self-healing power of the human body. (Research documentation available upon request)
Your body is continuously oxidizing just like an apple that is cut in half and left on a counter. Antioxidants (Molecular Hydrogen) stabilize free radical cells that cause premature aging, wrinkles, weak immune systems, and in time, diseases.
Molecular Hydrogen is the strongest antioxidant in the world and I’m very thankful for Mr. Oshiro & Enagic for providing this technology to everyone.
The Japanese have the longest life expectancy in the world and I can see why.
Change your water, Change your life!
When you see the price of these brilliant water machines you will probably think that they are costly but take a good look at the diagram below and observe the figures and you will find over the years that your unhealthy bottled water will be far more expensive, in not just a financial way, but also the cost of ill health.
“The [bottled water] industry grossed a total of $11.8 billion on those 9.7 billion gallons in 2012, making bottled water about $1.22/gallon nationwide and 300x the cost of a gallon of tap water,” Colas says. “If we take into account the fact that almost 2/3 of all bottled water sales are single 16.9oz (500 mL) bottles, though, this cost is much, much higher: about $7.50 per gallon, according to the American Water Works Association. That’s almost 2,000x the cost of a gallon of tap water and twice the cost of a gallon of regular gasoline.“
