Blame it On The Water

Went to a seminar today that talked about the acidity of water and the need to treat your water to make it neutral-to-alkaline so that it will be in a useful form for your body. I need to do some more research before I make a full post on this but some of what the presenter said made a lot of sense to me.

The presenter shared a quote from Dr Otto Warburg, who received the Nobel Prize in 1931 for work he did in researching (and discovering) the cause of cancer. In Dr. Warburg’s words “… the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. No disease, including cancer, can exist in an alkaline environment” 

Water is supposed to flush our bodies of toxins and hydrate our cells. Drinking water that is even slightly acidic can, over time, change the pH level of our bodies, and make it a more attractive environment for some diseases.

Although there are other factors to be mindful of, simply drinking alkaline water will help the body get rid of acidic waste and keep the blood slightly alkaline, thus keeping chronic diseases and inflammation at bay.

That bit of information has kicked my engineering brain into motion so I’ll be doing more research and I’ll keep you posted on my findings.

    Really interesting indeed! There was a discussion on this topic on the radio today when I was at the hairdresser and I was enthralled. The bottles holding the water seem to also be a big factor. Waiting anxiously for your research.

      Thanks for reading. I will do my best. Water and water bottles are fascinating topics. As a chemical engineer, I studied the petrochemical process to make plastic and over time, the chemicals react with whatever chemicals are added to the water to start to denature the plastic. That’s why there is an expiry date on the water and why we shouldn’t reuse water bottles too many times. More info to come.


What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts as well.
