Could the Water you are drinking be Killing You

The Dangers of Distilled and Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water

Some folks out there believe that it is safe to drink distilled and reverse osmosis water, claiming there are no potential health risks – although there is never any supporting data associated with these claims, only to the contrary. These same few folks also claim that distilled water has a neutral pH… litmus paper or a pH meter can see the pH is usually between 5.2 – 6pH, and drops lower as it sits exposed to open air. Why then would anyone with any reputation at all say that it is safe to drink distilled and R.O. water, even though basic chemistry tells us differently?

“Alternative agenda”, is what I like to call it. You’ll notice that most of these supporters of distillers and R.O. systems usually have some government or alternate agenda – the government wants you to stay sick to keep the disease-mongering health system afloat, so why would they want you to avoid the potentially hazardous effects of drinking unnatural water that does not exist anywhere on the planet? Simple… greed.

Why has Asia banned reverse osmosis water from their country, because it is dead water.

You need to understand that the water that comes off the mountains and go down the streams and then into the ocean has natural minerals in it. You cannot live without minerals.

Distilled water and reverse osmosis water is called dead water for this simple reason. During the process of making this water they are taking out all the toxic chemicals that are in the water and that is including all the minerals, there is nothing alive left in it that is why they call it dead water or pure water.

You also need to understand that water has a memory; it knows it is supposed to have minerals in it, as you drink these types of dead water it will leach all the minerals out of your bones, muscles, teeth, hair, and tissues, what do you think that will lead to.

Early Death Comes From Drinking Distilled Water

During nearly 19 years of clinical practice I have had the opportunity to observe thehealth 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.

Distillation is the process in which water is boiled, evaporated and the vapor 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.

According to the US 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.

… Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of distilled water. Avoid it except in special circumstances. This also applies to reverse osmosis water.

Likewise, pure water will leach out any and every substance that it can dissolve from the
substances that it comes into contact with, until its content is homogeneous with its
surrounding or the water is saturated with substances so that it can no longer dissolve
anymore substances.

Since the creation of this planet, rainwater has been washing down minerals from the mountains into the ocean. Ocean water has been saturated for a long time with specific minerals, yet rivers continue to carry down the minerals. The result is that at the bottom of the ocean there are tons of mineral deposits precipitated. If we knew how to recover the minerals from the bottom of the ocean, we would be very rich.

Distilled water and RO (reverse osmosis) filtered water contain no minerals, simulating close to pure water.

This pure water should be neutral with a pH value of 7. However, it measures acid pH! The reason for this phenomenon is that pure water sucks in carbon dioxides from the atmosphere. Although it measures acid pH, there are no acid minerals in that water. If pure water is stored in plastic bottle, the water smells plastic.

In the 1950s distilled water was sold in drug stores with the label “Not for drinking!” Distilled water was used to fill car batteries and steam irons. Distilled water is not healthy because it will leach out valuable alkaline minerals from our body.

If you know someone who drinks distilled water or has a reverse osmosis system tell them to “STOP” drinking these types of water. For those of you that think this is hug wash then keeping on drinking the water it is your choice, think about this ‘ what if”.

You Aquafina and Dasani drinkers you might want to stop drinking these types of waters both are reverse osmosis water.
