Why Purified Water is Bad for You


by Zoltan P. Rona MD, MSc

During nearly 19 years of clinical practice I have had the opportunity to observe the health effects of drinking different types of water. Most of you would agree that drinking unfiltered tap water could be hazardous to your health because of things like parasites, chlorine, fluoride and dioxins. Many health fanatics, however, are often surprised to hear me say that drinking purified water on a regular, daily basis is potentially dangerous. Paavo Airola wrote about the dangers of purified water in the 1970′s when it first became a fad with the health food crowd.

Distillation is the process in which water is boiled, evaporated and the vapor condensed. Purified or reverse osmosis water is free of dissolved minerals and, because of this, has the special property of being able to actively absorb toxic substances from the body and eliminate them. Studies validate the benefits of drinking purified water when one is seeking to cleanse or detoxify the system for short periods of time (a few weeks at a time). Fasting using purified water can be dangerous because of the rapid loss of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride) and trace minerals like magnesium, deficiencies of which can cause heart beat irregularities and high blood pressure. Cooking foods in purified water pulls the minerals out of them and lowers their nutrient value.

Purified water is an active absorber and when it comes into contact with air, it absorbs carbon dioxide, making it acidic. The more purified water a person drinks, the higher the body acidity becomes. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, “Purified” water, being essentially mineral-free, is very aggressive, in that it tends to dissolve substances with which it is in contact. Notably, carbon dioxide from the air is rapidly absorbed, making the water acidic and even more aggressive. Many metals are dissolved by purified water.

The most toxic commercial beverages that people consume (i.e. cola beverages and other soft drinks) are made from purified water. Studies have consistently shown that heavy consumers of soft drinks (with or without sugar) spill huge amounts of calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals into the urine. The more mineral loss, the greater the risk for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and a long list of degenerative diseases generally associated with premature aging.

A growing number of health care practitioners and scientists from around the world have been advocating the theory that aging and disease is the direct result of the accumulation of acid waste products in the body. There is a great deal of scientific documentation that supports such a theory. A poor diet may be partially to blame for the waste accumulation. Meats, sugar, white flour products, fried foods, soft drinks, processed foods, alcohol, dairy products and other junk foods cause the body to become more acidic. Stress, whether mental or physical can lead to acid deposits in the body.

There is a correlation between the consumption of soft water (purified water is extremely soft) and the incidence of cardiovascular disease. Cells, tissues and organs do not like to be dipped in acid and will do anything to buffer this acidity including the removal of minerals from the skeleton and the manufacture of bicarbonate in the blood. The longer one drinks purified water, the more likely the development of mineral deficiencies and an acid state. I have done well over 3000 mineral evaluations using a combination of blood, urine and hair tests in my practice. Almost without exception, people who consume purified water exclusively, eventually develop multiple mineral deficiencies. Those who supplement their purified water intake with trace minerals are not as deficient but still not as adequately nourished in minerals as their non-purified water drinking counterparts even after several years of mineral supplementation.

The ideal water for the human body should be slightly alkaline and this requires the presence of minerals like calcium and magnesium. Purified water tends to be acidic and can only be recommended as a way of drawing poisons out of the body. Once this is accomplished, the continued drinking of purified water is a bad idea.

Water filtered through a solid charcoal filter is slightly alkaline. Ozonation of this charcoal filtered water is ideal for daily drinking. Longevity is associated with the regular consumption of hard water (high in minerals). Ionized Water is the best possible drinking water. Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of purified water. Avoid it except in special circumstances.

The Quality of your Drinking Water is Important


The right type of water is full of energy. Ever heard of “heavy” water, it makes powerful bombs? Ever heard of anyone or anything living without water?

It’s used universally for diluting almost anything. So if its full of energy why do people not take advantage of it?

Without water we would have no drinks of any kind. Most drinks are acidic in content, very few are alkaline in content.

Most people would agree, it’s universal in diluting almost anything. How many people would drink “cordial” straight? Not many, as it’s a concentrate of a substance.

Our bodies cells rely on nutrients and above all oxygen to function in the utilization of any nutrients. Rather like a “mini” power station, burning substances to produce energy. If there is not enough oxygen then the cells will not “burn” or function like they should or could do.

The same applies to concentrates within the body, if they are not or cannot be diluted then function will be impaired / reduced to a level were function of some sort can be produced / utilized. The concentrates that reduce function are acidic, some acids are necessary but not as a concentrate at cellular levels, this could be likened to a “sludge” that needs diluting ! Yes, they need diluting but then they need oxygen to increase the metabolic processes and burn the accumulated wastes at a cellular level.

If you wanted to clean something say like a white shirt would you use tea, coffee, beer, lager, milk, cordial or any other drink you could think of ? Probably not, you would use water and yes a commercial soap of some kind. If the soap was not diluted would it affect the shirt, would you “rinse” the shirt to get rid of accumulated soap etc. ? Then why do you probably drink water in its different forms and expect it to wash or clean you out at a cellular level ? Water is water, anything added changes its composition / structure and is utilize by the body differently than what “water” should be used for – diluting, carrying nutrition and providing oxygen. So that cells can function at their optimum level, instead of trying to function in a non oxygenated “sludge”, that is acidic in content and may even be chemically compromised !

So lets look at water, tap water has possible leached chemicals and added chemicals.

Chlorine is used in almost all water supplies, it’s a chemical that is needed to “disinfect” water supplies.

This disinfectant is needed in mass water supplies, but that does not mean that it is OK to drink or that you should drink it !! As an example the 1st World War treaty has wording to the effect that : Chlorine and Fluorine would never be used again in chemical warfare against humanity, so why is it put in the water supplies and what’s more you are probably drinking it ? It has been stated that cells need oxygen to function, did you know that chlorine in a laboratory situation explodes oxygen, do you think it might be “robbing” cells of oxygen or chemically confusing what should be done with the disinfectant ?

Now lets look at other supplies of water, like bottled water for instance. Some bottled water supplies have Chlorine in them ? Every “office” / carboy bottled water that we have tested has Chlorine in it ?

So yes it’s water but its adulterated chemically, remember the body will not necessarily utilize it the way it could do, as it has to try and naturalize the chemical first ! Oxygen dissipates out of water within 24 hours, how long has your bottled water been standing there ? Carbonated / “fizzy” drinks are acidic, your lungs are trying to get rid of the very thing you are drinking, so why drink carbonated water ?

This then leads us into some science statements as follows :

Otto Warburg twice Nobel Laureate “Cancer above all other disease, has countless secondary causes, but there is only one prime cause. The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the normal oxygen respiration of body cells by an anaerobic cell respiration.” = An Acidic concentrate environment.

Robins and Cotran (W.B.Saunders) Pathologic basis of disease “Lack of cellular oxygen supply is probably the most common cause of cell injury and may also be the ultimate mechanism of damage.” = An acidic concentrate environment.

What type of water should I be drinking then ? As a minimum filtered water, even though it will be oxygen deficient after 24 hours, ideally “fresh” filtered, oxygenated rich alkalized water is the best.

Alkaline water is a powerful antioxidant. People spend hundreds of pounds purchasing antioxidants because they are anti-diseases, anti-aging, anticancer, which they accomplish through neutralizing free radicals. Free Radical damage causes disease, and allows us to age quicker. Since Ionized Water is a liquid antioxidant, it is easily absorbed into the body, this makes it much more effective as a powerful antioxidant.

The Ionized Antioxidant, in the form of Hydroxyl Ions (an oxygen molecule with an extra electron), donates its extra electron to free radicals (a oxygen molecule that is missing one electron).

When drinking oxygen rich alkaline Ionized Water, this basically means that you have more oxygen available to donate and reduce / stop free radical damage. This is one of the most health enhancing aspects of Ionized Water giving you Energy by providing your body with more of what is needed “oxygen”. With the added bonus, of attracting “excess” acidity with alkaline water for elimination.

The detoxification properties of Ionized Water are powerful and sometimes astounding. They simply can not be ignored. A Water Ionizer has different levels of intensity because the average person cannot start out drinking strongly ionized water. This is particularly true of the elderly or ill people, who need to start out at the lowest level and work their way slowly to other levels. Most people have spent a lifetime building up acidic wastes in their bodies, they may suffer headaches and diarrhea if they drink too much too soon or use the wrong level on starting. It is always advisable to start on level 1 of the Regency Elite, sipping the water slowly throughout the day. Unhealthy cells live in an acid environment!

As alkaline water is a smaller water molecule its absorption rate is 3 times more than an ordinary water molecule, this basically means better hydration of body tissues and better dilution of bodily wastes.

It is said that an adult should drink 8 glasses of water per day minimum, not many do drink this amount!

Dangers of Chlorine in Water Supply


If you are not convinced about the dangers of chlorine in your tap water, here’s an extract from: Dr Z Rona MD MSc “Most people never give it a thought. After all, our elected public officials keep assuring us that chlorinated city tap water is completely safe for human consumption. Numerous scientific studies report that chlorinated tap water is a skin irritant and can be associated with rashes like eczema. Chlorinated water can destroy polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E in the body while generating toxins capable of free radical damage (oxidation). This might explain why supplementation of the diet with essential fatty acids like flax seed oil, evening primrose oil, borage oil and antioxidants like vitamin E, selenium and others helps so many cases of eczema and dry skin.

“Chlorinated water destroys much of the intestinal flora, the friendly bacteria that help in the digestion of food and which protects the body from harmful pathogens. These bacteria are also responsible for the manufacture of several important vitamins like vitamin B12 and vitamin K. It is not uncommon for chronic skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, seborrhea and eczema to clear up or to be significantly improved by switching to unchlorinated drinking water and supplementing the diet with lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus.

“Chlorinated water contains chemical compounds called trihalomethanes which are carcinogens resulting from the combination of chlorine with compounds in water. These chemicals, also known as organochlorides, do not degrade very well and are generally stored in the fatty tissues of the body (breast, other fatty areas, mother’s milk, blood and semen). Organochlorides can cause mutations by altering DNA, suppress immune system function and interfere with the natural controls of cell growth.

“Chlorine has been documented to aggravate asthma, especially in those children who make use of chlorinated swimming pools. Several studies also link chlorine and chlorinated by-products to a greater incidence of bladder, breast and bowel cancer as well as malignant melanoma. One study even links the use of chlorinated tap water to congenital cardiac anomalies.

“Anything you can do to filter tap and shower water that eliminates or even minimizes chlorine would certainly be helpful and possibly curative for some immune system problems. The use of at source water filtration devices is increasingly popular and affordable. Discuss their use with your health care practitioner”.

Fluoridated Water may be Dangerous


I have the hope that after reading this information, you will choose to do some more research on the dangers of fluoride in water and in our toothpaste which will lead you to a wise decision for yourself. If you decide that fluoride is detrimental to your health and are purchasing a Regency Elite, you might want to add a fluoride pre-filter.

Dr. Gerard F. Judd, Professor, Chemist, and Researcher sent Kallie Miller the following personal message:

On page 53 are names of 66 enzymes destroyed by very low levels of fluoride
in the .01 to 1.9 ppm range.

On page 54 is a list of 113 ailments caused by fluoride in tap water. 13 of
these were with 1 ppm in drinking water in a double blind study as determined
by Dr. Moohlenburgh in Holland, utilizing 60 patients, 12 physicians, 1
pharmacist, and 1 attorney. The 13 were “abdominal bloat, constipation,
depression, diarrhea, headaches, nausea, bone pain, stomach pain, stomatitis,
thirst exaggeration, tinnitus, vertigo and blurred vision.

The reason fluoride does this is because it severs the hydrogen bonds holding
the coils together in the enzyme structures which could have a molecular
weight as high as 69,000 whereas fluoride is only 19. Fluoride is the
smallest negative ion on the face of the earth, even smaller than hydride ion
causing it to have the most intense negative charge of any particle on earth.
This makes it the most destructive single ion on earth.

In addition to this profound knowledge we find from pages 44, 45, 46, and 49
that fluoride increases cavities 7% (22,000 children); 43% (29,000 children);
27% (.4 million children); and 5.8 % (39,000 children) when increased 1 ppm
in drinking water.

In addition to this, Table 1 on pages 57 and 58 gives the very low lethal
dosages of fluoride compounds: Fluoroacetic acid .050 mg/kg,
alphafluorobutyrate methylester .1, sodium alphafluorocrotonate .15,
ethyl-5-fluorohexanate .24, sodiumfluoroacetate .25,
di-isopropylfluorophosphate (VX nerve gas) 1.0, fluosalicylic acid 8.0,
sodium fluoride 57 (severe symptoms 3.6), ammoniumfluosalicylicate 100,
potassium fluoride 250, nitrogen trifluoride 332.

These compare to Sarin (nerve gas) as .01, pure chlorine (30 ppm, 10 minutes)
.17, phosphine (60 ppm, 5 minutes) .39, diborane .40, potassium cyanide, 1.6,
mustard gas, 3.5, arsenic (V) oxide 8.0, carbon monoxide (1000 ppm for 4
minutes) 8.0, arsenic acid 8.0, sodium arsenate 10.0, hydrogen sulfide
(rotten egg gas) 15, thallium (II) sulfate 16, phenylmercuric hydroxide 18,
kerosene 35, cadmium fluoride 88, lead arsenate 100, DDT 113, lead (II)
acetate 150, lead dioxide 200, dimethylarsenic acid 700, sodium cacodylate
(arsenic compound) 0.

You can easily see that fluoride competes with the highest toxicity of any
compounds on the face of the earth. It is far more toxic than arsenic, lead,
cadmium, thallium and even Sarin nerve gas. It has killed more animals on
earth than any other substance known.

Perhaps this will help you to get a perspective on fluoride from the book,
Good Teeth Birth to Death, that you already have. In addition to this, I
have worked on fluoride and from experience and medical advice, this is the
fact: hydrofluoric acid will kill a nerve cell which then dispenses the
fluoride. It will then kill the next cell and so on right on down the nerve
until the whole nerve is dead. That is why children in the dental chair
suffer death when they ingest as little as 1/2 tsp of the gel, 13,000 ppm
(1.3%) placed there by dentists in their false attempt to harden the enamel.
The sad part is the dentists have no idea what they are doing.

To whom it may concern:

Why I am now officially opposed to adding fluoride to drinking water

Since April of 1999, I have publicly decried the addition of fluoride, especially hydrofluosilicic acid, to drinking water for the purpose of preventing tooth decay. The following summarize my reasons.

New evidence for lack of effectiveness of fluoridation in modern times.

1. Modern studies (published in the 1980′s 1990′s) show dental decay rates are so low in North America that the effects of water fluoridation cannot be measured. Because of the low prevalence of dental decay, water fluoridation studies today must be carefully conducted to correct for mobility of subjects between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas, access to fluoride from other sources, the lack of blinding and problems with the `halo’ effect. Even when very large sample sizes are used to obtain statistically significant results, the benefit of water fluoridation is not a clinically relevant one (the number of tooth surfaces saved from dental decay per person is less than one half). Recent studies show that halting fluoridation will either result in only a marginal increase in dental decay which cannot be detected or no increase in dental decay at all.

2. The major reasons for the general decline of tooth decay worldwide, both in non-fluoridated and fluoridated areas, is the widespread use of fluoridated toothpaste, improved diets, and overall improved general and dental health (antibiotics, preservatives, hygiene etc).

3. There is now a better understanding of how fluoride prevents dental decay. What little benefit fluoridated water may still provide is derived primarily through topical means (after the teeth erupt and come in contact with fluorides in the oral cavity). Fluoride does not need to be swallowed to be effective. It is not an essential nutrient. Nor should it be considered a desirable `supplement’ for children living in non-fluoridated areas. Fluoride ingestion delays tooth eruption and this may account for some of the differences seen in the past between fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas (i.e. dental decay is simply postponed). No fluoridation study has ever separated out the systemic effects of fluoride. Even if there were a systemic benefit from ingestion of fluoride, it would be miniscule and clinically irrelevant. The notion that systemic fluorides are needed in non-fluoridated areas is an outdated one that should be abandoned altogether.

New evidence for potential serious harm from long-term fluoride ingestion.

1. Hydrofluorosilicic acid is recovered from the smokestack scrubbers during the production of phosphate fertilizer and sold to most of the major cities in North America, which use this industrial grade source of fluoride to fluoridate drinking water, rather than the more expensive pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride salt. Fluorosilicates have never been tested for safety in humans. Furthermore, these industrial-grade chemicals are contaminated with trace amounts of heavy metals such as lead, arsenic and radium that accumulate in humans. Increased lead levels have been found in children living in fluoridated communities. Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) has been shown to be associated with radium in the drinking water. Long-term ingestion of these harmful elements should be avoided altogether.

2. Half of all ingested fluoride remains in the skeletal system and accumulates with age. Several recent epidemiological studies suggest that only a few years of fluoride ingestion from fluoridated water increases the risk for bone fracture. The relationship between the milder symptoms of bone fluorosis (joint pain and arthritic symptoms) and fluoride accumulation in humans has never been investigated. People unable to eliminate fluoride under normal conditions (kidney impairment) or people who ingest more than average amounts of water (athletes, diabetics) are more at risk to be affected by the toxic effects of fluoride accumulation.

3. There is a dose-dependent relationship between the prevalence/severity of dental fluorosis and fluoride ingestion. When dental decay rates were high, a certain amount of dental fluorosis was considered an acceptable `trade off’ of providing an `optimum’ dose of 1.0 ppm fluoride in the water. However, studies published in the 1980′s and 1990′s have shown that dental fluorosis has increased dramatically in North America. Infants and toddlers are especially at risk for dental fluorosis of the front teeth since it is during the first 3 years of life that the permanent front teeth are the most sensitive to the effects of fluoride. Children fed formula made with fluoridated tap water are at higher risk to develop dental fluorosis. A relatively small percentage of the children affected with dental fluorosis have the more severe kind that requires extensive restorative dental work to correct the damage. The long-term effect of fluoride accumulation on dentin colour and biomechanics is also unknown. Generalized dental fluorosis of all the permanent teeth indicates that the bone is a major source of the excess fluoride. The effect of this excess amount of fluoride in bone is unknown. Whether stress bone fractures occur more often in children with dental fluorosis has not been studied.

4. A lifetime of excessive fluoride ingestion will undoubtedly have detrimental effects on a number of biological systems in the body and it is illogical to assume that tooth enamel is the only tissue affected by low daily doses of fluoride ingestion. Fluoride activates G-protein and a number of cascade reactions in the cell. At high concentrations it is both mitogenic and genotoxic. Some published studies point to fluoride’s interference with the reproductive system, the pineal gland and thyroid function. Fluoride is a proven carcinogen in humans exposed to high industrial levels. No study has yet been conducted to determine the level of fluoride that bone cells are exposed to when fluoride-rich bone is turned over. Thus, the issue of fluoride causing bone cancer cannot be dismissed as being a non-issue since carefully conducted animal and human cancer studies using the exact same chemicals added to our drinking water have not been carried out.

The issue of mass medication of an unapproved drug without the expressed informed consent of each individual must also be addressed. The dose of fluoride cannot be controlled. Fluoride as a drug has contaminated most processed foods and beverages throughout North America. Individuals who are susceptible to fluoride’s harmful effects cannot avoid ingesting this drug. This presents a medico-legal and ethical dilemma and sets water fluoridation apart from vaccination as a public health measure where doses and distribution can be controlled. The rights of individuals to enjoy the freedom from involuntary fluoride medication certainly outweigh the right of society to enforce this public health measure, especially when the evidence of benefit is marginal at best.

Based on the points outlined briefly above, the evidence has convinced me that the benefits of water fluoridation no longer outweigh the risks. The money saved from halting water fluoridation programs can be more wisely spent on concentrated public health efforts to reduce dental decay in the populations that are still at risk and this will, at the same time, lower the incidence of the harmful side effects that a large segment of the general population is currently experiencing because of this outdated public health measure.

WHY I CHANGED MY MIND ABOUT WATER FLUORIDATION by John Colquhoun* © 1997 University of Chicago Press

QUESTIONS TO ASK ABOUT FLUORIDATION WHEN DEALING WITH PRO-FLUORIDATION EXPERTS

FOLLOWING IS FROM:

 

John Remington Graham, an attorney, has successfully prosecuted water fluoridation cases in US and Canadian courts. The following illuminating extracts are taken from his manuscript

THE FLUORIDE DRAGON has some good data to keep in mind when dealing with the So called “water Fluoridation Experts”

 

Often – and it may be regarded as a maxim of dirty politics – when scheming adults have selfish or oppressive ends in mind, they try to sell their program by appealing to the welfare of children. This approach has been even more effective in getting otherwise good citizens to do stupid things than the most rabid anti-communist hysteria.

It so happens that, on October 15, 1984, I had occasion to take a deposition from Dr Echternacht, who, with Dr Uppgaard, had repeatedly appeared before committees of the legislature of the State [of Minnesota] to proclaim that artificial fluoridation of public water supplies is “safe, effective and economical.” The deposition went like this:

Q: You wouldn’t be in a position to tell me, basically, what happened in the Newburgh-Kingston Study, would you?
A: Well, I just remember the outcome, and I don’t remember whether it was Kingston or Newburgh that did fluoridate the water supply for the control city. It showed fluoridation was very beneficial, and there were no harmful side effects found from the use of fluoridation.

Q: Do you have any recollection in your reading what the nature of that evidence was?
A: No.

Q: Have you read any laboratory studies or other work on living tissue about the effects of fluoride in water?
A: I have read summaries presented in papers regarding it through my dental literature.

Q: Have you read any by a Dr Alfred Taylor?
A: No.

Q: How about Drs Irwin Herskowitz and Isabel Norton?
A: No.

Q: Have you ever read anything about Wolfgang Klein?
A: No.

Q: Have you read the report put out by the National Research Council of Canada by Rose and Marier in 1977, entitled ‘Environmental Fluoride, 1977′?
A: No.

Q: Have you ever read anything about Dr Chong Chang that came out in about 1968?
A: No.

Q: Have you ever read anything about Dr Danuta Jachimczak published in 1978?
A: No.

Q: Have you ever read anything about Dr John Emsley and his co-workers at the University of London on the hydrogen bonding potential of fluoride?
A: No.

Q: Have you ever read anything about Dr Takeki Tsutsui from Japan on the possible effects of fluoride on living tissue, either of a cancer-related nature or otherwise?
A: No.
Q: Have you ever read the work of Drs Burk and Yamouyiannis on fluoridation and cancer, the epidemiological studies?
A: No.

Q: I take it, then, that you have not read a compendium of scientific material that was gathered in congressional hearings entitled Hearings before a Subcommittee of the Committee on Government Operations, House of Representatives, 95th Congress, 1st Session, September 21 and October 12, 1977, of which I show you a copy?
A: No.

Q: I take it, then, that you simply are not familiar with and do not consider yourself an expert with any particular intensive knowledge with respect to any of these subjects of epidemiology or the laboratory studies that have been done on both sides of the question of whether or not fluoridation may be harmful to human health in terms of cancer or anything else?
A: I haven’t read them, but scientists whose articles I have read, and whom I respect, have certainly covered these various articles, and I accept their decision.

Q: What scientists whose articles you have read would you include on your list, can you give me one name?
A: No, not really.
I was called to try a case before the District Court of Texas in Houston. The matter was entitled Safe Water Foundation of Texas v. City of Houston, 151st Judicial District, No. 80-52271. The chief counsel on the case advised me that we had to prove by a fair preponderance of the evidence that artificial fluoridation of public water supplies causes cancer and other ailments in man. Judge Anthony Farris, tough-minded and blunt, heard the evidence. He was exceedingly fair to both sides. It was an international confrontation of the leading experts in the world.

When we rested our case on January 20, 1982, I was never so proud of a group of professional men in my life. And they all proved the truth of the seasoned lawyer’s maxim that if an adverse witness is really strong, avoid cross-examination if you can. Naturally, Dean Burk was there. I think history will show that, when he testified, Dr Burk was the most eminent cancer scientist then living. He stated the awful truth, a truth so awful that you do not want to believe it:

Q: In assessing the total percentage of cancer increase in the United States . . . do you have an opinion, based on a reasonable degree of scientific probability, as to what percentage of those would be associated with fluoridation?
A: Not in terms of percentage. That would be estimated, but it is my firm opinion that fluoridation contributes very materially to the increase that is observed. I have had that opinion for quite a few years now. In other words, we wouldn’t see by any means as much increase in cancer but for this fluoridation, or, to look at it from the other way around, I know of absolutely no, and I mean absolutely no means of prevention that would save so many lives as simply to stop fluoridation, or don’t start it where it is otherwise going to be started. There you might save 30,000 or 40,000 or 50,000 lives a year, cancer lives. That is an awful lot of lives a year.

Q: At any expense?
A: No, it would save money.

Q: And at any great effort?
A: No, you just wouldn’t bother to put it in the water. And why people don’t fully appreciate it, or take action to oppose it, I cannot understand without going into the question of politics and the root of all evil and those things. But, scientifically, I can’t understand any basis.

The other side appeared with their team of polished witnesses. Their first witness was the Director of the Health Department for the City of Houston. She held the degrees of doctor of medicine and master of public health. In an erudite and poised manner, with demeanor of a kind which naturally commands respect and confidence, she had enthusiastically and unreservedly recommended, for the good of children, especially those in low socioeconomic groups, that the City of Houston “adjust the fluoride in the municipal water supply to the optimal level for reduction of dental caries.”

Early Death comes from Drinking Distilled Water


Dr Z. P. Rona MD, Msc

During nearly 19 years of clinical practice I have had the opportunity to observe the health effects of drinking different types of water. Most of you would agree that drinking unfiltered tap water could be hazardous to your health because of things like parasites, chlorine, fluoride and dioxins.

Many health fanatics, however, are often surprised to hear me say that drinking distilled water on a regular, daily basis is potentially dangerous.

Paavo Airola wrote about the dangers of distilled water in the 1970′s when it first became a fad with the health food crowd.

Distillation is the process in which water is boiled, evaporated and the vapour condensed. Distilled water is free of dissolved minerals and, because of this, has the special property of being able to actively absorb toxic substances from the body and eliminate them. Studies validate the benefits of drinking distilled water when one is seeking to cleanse or detoxify the system for short periods of time (a few weeks at a time). Fasting using distilled water can be dangerous because of the rapid loss of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride) and trace minerals like magnesium, deficiencies of which can cause heart beat irregularities and high blood pressure. Cooking foods in distilled water pulls the minerals out of them and lowers their nutrient value.

Distilled water is an active absorber and when it comes into contact with air, it absorbs carbon dioxide, making it acidic. The more distilled water a person drinks, the higher the body acidity becomes. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, “Distilled water, being essentially mineral-free, is very aggressive, in that it tends to dissolve substances with which it is in contact. Notably, carbon dioxide from the air is rapidly absorbed, making the water acidic and even more aggressive. Many metals are dissolved by distilled water.”

The most toxic commercial beverages that people consume (i.e. cola beverages and other soft drinks) are made from distilled water. Studies have consistently shown that heavy consumers of soft drinks (with or without sugar) spill huge amounts of calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals into the urine. The more mineral loss, the greater the risk for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and a long list of degenerative diseases generally associated with premature aging.

A growing number of health care practitioners and scientists from around the world have been advocating the theory that aging and disease is the direct result of the accumulation of acid waste products in the body.

There is a great deal of scientific documentation that supports such a theory. A poor diet may be partially to blame for the waste accumulation. Meats, sugar, white flour products, fried foods, soft drinks, processed foods, alcohol, dairy products and other junk foods cause the body to become more acidic. Stress, whether mental or physical can lead to acid deposits in the body.

There is a correlation between the consumption of soft water (distilled water is extremely soft) and the incidence of cardiovascular disease. Cells, tissues and organs do not like to be dipped in acid and will do anything to buffer this acidity including the removal of minerals from the skeleton and the manufacture of bicarbonate in the blood.

The longer one drinks distilled water, the more likely the development of mineral deficiencies and an acid state. I have done well over 3000 mineral evaluations using a combination of blood, urine and hair tests in my practice. Almost without exception, people who consume distilled water exclusively, eventually develop multiple mineral deficiencies.

Those who supplement their distilled water intake with trace minerals are not as deficient but still not as adequately nourished in minerals as their non-distilled water drinking counterparts even after several years of mineral supplementation.

The ideal water for the human body should be slightly alkaline and this requires the presence of minerals like calcium and magnesium.

Distilled water tends to be acidic and can only be recommended as a way of drawing poisons out of the body. Once this is accomplished, the continued drinking of distilled water is a bad idea.

Water filtered through reverse osmosis tends to be neutral and is acceptable for regular use provided minerals are supplemented.

Water filtered through a solid charcoal filter is slightly alkaline. Ozonation of this charcoal filtered water is ideal for daily drinking. Longevity is associated with the regular consumption of hard water (high in minerals). Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of distilled water. Avoid it except in special circumstances.

Your Body’s Many Cries for Water


The remedy for your medical problems may be as close as your filtered tap water or preferably the Regency Elite Ionizer-Alkalizer water filter which is sold on this web site for even more benefits.

It is almost a miracle what 8-10 eight-ounce glasses of water per day will do for many maladies. It is recommended that you ingest 1/8 teaspoon of Celtic salt for every quart of water you drink.

This information has been distilled from Dr. F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.’s book and video, “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water”.

There is one major problem:

People won’t drink that much due to the inconvenience of frequent urination . . . a small price to pay for better health. If your urine is not a very pale yellow, or even clear, you are not getting enough water (does not apply to those taking B-complex vitamins as these turn the urine bright yellow).

Drinking water does NOT refer to coffee, sodas or tea.

1: Dump the Tums and cure heartburn.

Heartburn may be a signal of water shortage in the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract. It is a major thirst signal of the human body. The use of antacids or tablet medications in the treatment of this pain does not correct dehydration, and the body continues to suffer as a result of its water shortage. Not recognizing heartburn as a sign of dehydration and treating it with antacids and pill medications can, in time, produce inflammation of the stomach and duodenum, hiatal hernia, ulceration, and possibly cancers in the gastrointestinal tract.

2: Water may prevent and cure arthritis.

Rheumatoid Joint Pain – Arthritis – may be a signal of water shortage in the painful joint. It can affect the young as well as the old. The use of painkillers does not cure the problem, but exposes the person to further damage from pain medications. Whenever you feel pain in any of your joints, the first thought that should occur to you is, “My body is severely short of water.” That’s because the parts of your body that suffer most when you are dehydrated are those without direct vascular circulation, like joint cartilage. Without sufficient water and the nourishment that water provides, cartilage cells eventually shrivel up and die. Intake of water and small amounts of salt will cure this problem.

3: Back pain.

Low Back Pain and Ankylosing Arthritis of the Spine may be signs of water shortage in the spinal column and discs – the spinal cushions that support the weight of the body. lower back pain is a sign of chronic water shortage in the spinal column and discs – the water cushions that support the weight of the body. When your back is hurting, the cells in your spinal column need extra water to flush out acid particles formed by a strain or injury. Also, the natural shock absorbers in your back can’t function without water to make them soft and spongy. By rehydrating your body in the proper manner, you may quickly reduce and even eliminate back pain. Pain medications and surgery have their risks and complications. Why not try hydrating your body and gently exercising first?
4: Angina.

Heart Pain – Angina – can be a sign of water shortage in the heart/lung axis. It should be treated with increased water intake until the patient is free of pain and independent of medications. Angina is actually caused by dehydration. As prolonged drought sets in, your body becomes more acidic. Acid-like chemicals are produced that burn into the cell membranes in the linings of your arteries, causing painful angina spasms. Cholesterol actually plays a protective role, bandaging the damaged membranes and keeping them from peeling away. Only water can correct this acid imbalance and relieve the tortuous pain it causes. However, increased water intake may be your cure for angina. Medical supervision is advised. Regency Elite Ionized Alkalized water decreases the acidity in your body. Regency Elite sold on this web site.

5: Migraines.

Migraine Headache may be a sign that the brain and the eyes need water. Migraine may be prevented by keeping dehydration from establishing in the body, and may be totally cleared up by treating for the condition of dehydration. Why would anyone want to increase their suffering by taking medications riddled with side effects that worsen the very problem they are trying to correct? Instead, you must address the root cause of migraine headaches. Migraines are a sign that your peripheral vessels are excessively dilated, due to factors like heat stress, hangover, and allergic or dietary triggers, all of which are made worse by dehydration. Drinking sufficient water promotes the closing of your vascular system throughout your body, alleviating your pain and preventing future attacks.
6: Colitis.

Colitis Pain is a signal of water shortage in the large gut. It is associated with constipation because the large intestine constricts to squeeze too much water from the excrements – thus the lack of water lubrication. Not recognizing colitis pain as a sign of dehydration will cause persistent constipation, which can result in fecal impacting, verticulitis, hemorrhoids, polyps, and appreciably increase the possibility of developing cancers of the colon and rectum. Parasites may also be a factor as well as food allergies which may decrease on increased water consumption.

7: Asthma.

Asthma, which also affects 12,000,000 children and kills several thousand of them every year, is a complication of dehydration in the body. It is caused by the drought management programs of the
body. Free passage of air is obstructed so that water does not leave the body in the form of vapor – the winter steam. Increased water intake will prevent asthma attacks. Asthmatics need also
to take more salt to break the mucus plugs in the lungs which obstruct the free flow of air in and out of the air sacs. Not recognizing asthma as the indicator of dehydration in growing children not only will sentence many thousands of children to die every year, but will permit irreversible genetic damage to establish in the remaining asthmatic children.

8: High blood pressure.

Hypertension is a state of adaptation of the body to a generalized drought, when there is not enough water to fill all the blood vessels, which diffuse water into vital cells. As part of the mechanism
of reverse osmosis, when water from the serum is filtered and injected into important cells through minute holes in their membranes, extra pressure is needed for the “injection process.” Just as we inject I.V. “water” in hospitals, so the body injects water into tens of trillions of cells all at the same time. Water and some salt intake will bring blood pressure back to normal! Sam Wang recommends ionized, alkalized water for high blood pressure. See our link to Regency Elite Ionizer-Alkalizers. Not recognizing hypertension as one of the major indicators of dehydration in the human body, and treating it with diuretics that further dehydrate the body will, in time, cause blockage by cholesterol of the heart arteries and the arteries that go to the brain. It will cause heart attacks and small or massive strokes that paralyze. It can eventually cause kidney diseases.

9: Adult-onset diabetes.

Adult-Onset Diabetes is another adaptive state to severe dehydration of the human body. To have adequate water in circulation and for the brain’s priority water needs, the release of insulin is inhibited to prevent insulin from pushing water into all body cells. In diabetes only some cells get survival rations of water. Water and some salt will reverse adult-onset diabetes in its early stages. Not recognizing adult-onset diabetes as a complication of dehydration may, in time, cause massive damage to the blood vessels all over the body. It may cause eventual loss of the toes, feet and legs from gangrene. It may cause eye damage, even blindness.

10: Blood cholesterol.

High Cholesterol levels is an indicator of early drought management by the body. Cholesterol is a clay-like material that is poured in the gaps of some cell membranes to safeguard them from losing
their vital water content to the osmotically more powerful blood circulating in their vicinity. Cholesterol, apart from being used to manufacture nerve cell membranes and hormones, is also used as a “shield” against water taxation of other vital cells that would normally exchange water through their cell membranes.

11: Depression, Loss of libido, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Lupus, Multiple sclerosis, and Muscular Dystrophy.

Chronic dehydration is certainly one factor in these illnesses. They may well clear up once the body becomes regularly hydrated. In these conditions, exercising one’s muscles should be part of the treatment program as well as a detoxification program and balanced nutrition.

Top 10 Reasons Never to Consume Soft Drinks


1. Soft drinks steal water from the body. They work very much like a diuretic which takes away more water than it provides to the body. Just to process the high levels of sugar in soft drinks steals a considerable amount of water from the body. To replace the water stolen by soft drinks, you need to drink 8-12 glasses of water for every one glass of soft drinks that you consume!

2. Soft Drinks never quench your thirst, certainly not your body’s need for water. Constantly denying your body an adequate amount can lead to Chronic Cellular Dehydration, a condition that weakens your body at the cellular level. This, in turn, can lead to a weakened immune system and a plethora of diseases.

3. The elevated levels of phosphates in soft drinks leach vital minerals from your body. Soft Drinks are made with purified water that also leach vital minerals from your body. A severe lack of minerals can lead to Heart Disease (lack of magnesium), Osteoporosis (lack of calcium) and many other diseases. Most vitamins can not perform their function in the body without the presence of minerals.

4. Soft Drinks can remove rust from a car bumper or other metal surfaces. Imagine what it’s doing to your digestive tract as well as the rest of your body.

5. The high amounts of sugar in Soft Drinks causes your pancreas to produce an abundance of insulin, which leads to a “sugar crash”. Chronic elevation and depletion of sugar and insulin can lead to diabetes and other imbalance related diseases. This is particularly disruptive to growing children which can lead to life-long health problems.

6. Soft Drinks severely interfere with digestion. Caffeine and high amounts of sugar virtually shut down the digestive process. That means your body is essentially taking in NO nutrients from the food you may have just eaten, even that eaten hours earlier. Consumed with french-fries which can take WEEKS to digest, there is arguably nothing worse a person can put in their body.

7. Diet soft drinks contain Aspartame, which has been linked to depression, insomnia, neurological disease and a plethora of other illness. The FDA has received more than 10,000 consumer complaints about Aspartame, that’s 80% of all complaints about food additives.

8. Soft Drinks are EXTREMELY acidic, so much so that they can eat through the liner of an aluminum can and leach aluminum from the can if it sits on the shelf too long. Alzheimer patients who have been autopsied ALL have high levels of aluminum in their brains. Heavy metals in the body can lead to many neurological and other diseases.

9. Soft Drinks are EXTREMELY acidic: The human body naturally exists at a pH of about 7.4. Soft Drinks have a pH of about 2.5, which means you are putting something into your body that is hundred of thousands of times more acidic that your body is! Diseases flourish in an acidic environment. Soft Drinks and other acidic food deposit acid waste in the body which accumulates over time in the joints and around the organs. For example, the Body pH of cancer or arthritis patients are always low. The sicker the person, the lower the Body pH.

10. Soft Drinks are the WORST THING you can possibly put in your body. Don’t even think of taking a sip of a Soft Drink when you are sick with a cold, flu or something worse. It will only make it that much harder for your body to fight the illness.
