Kangen Water® may contain Toxic Heavy Metals
Kangen water® is promoted by Enagic® Corporation as a healthier form of alkaline ionized mineral water, but is it? Information found on Enagic®’s website shows that due to inadequate filtration, Enagic®’s Kangen water® may contain dangerous toxins. Buried in the fine print, it says: “Elements not removable – Metallic ions and/or salinity present in the original tap water.”
What are Metallic Ions?
Metal molecules that have taken on an electrical charge are referred to as metallic ions. Metallic ions are commonly found in tap water, and with proper filtration, they pose no threat to health. Unfortunately, Enagic® machines do not appear to have the filtration necessary to reduce metallic ions to safe levels, leaving people who drink Enagic®’s “Kangen Water®” at risk of consuming these common toxins:
Any one of these metals can be harmful to health as they build up at the cellular level over time. Mercury and lead in particular, will be harmful even in small amounts. Despite the danger posed by heavy metals metallic ions, Enagic® Kangen® filtration does not treat for them.
Did you know? The small amount of mercury in one CFR light bulb is enough to kill all the fish in a 1000 acre pond, and with these bulbs becoming more common, mercury contamination is bound to increase.
Kangen Water® may Contain Salt
As if the warning about metallic ions wasn’t problem enough, according to the Enagic® corporate web site, Kangen water® may also contain salt. Salinity is present to some degree in nearly all tap water, but it can be reduced to safe levels with proper filtration.
Persons who need to watch their sodium intake should be warned of the Enagic® Kangen® sodium filtration deficiency, but there is no warning about sodium anywhere on the company’s website.
Is there better filtration available?
Yes, most water ionizers sold today use multiple filters that can reduce toxins like heavy metals to safe or even undetectable levels. The use of multiple filters in water ionizers is commonly accepted by the top water ionizer manufacturers as a must because of the poor quality of most tap water. Pre-filters greatly improve the effectiveness of ionizer filtration. Proper pre-filtration will be specifically designed to address contaminants found in source water. The combination of multiple internal filters and specifically designed pre-filters is your best bet for making sure your water is safe and healthy.
