129 These promoters of natural alkaline water filters are almost as bad as the sellers of additives which raise the pH of tap water to make it alkaline. The fact is that these natural non-electric alkaline water ionizer systems or filters are basically your old fashioned water filter like the Brita filter or singe stage inline filter, with an additional mineral adding filter which raises the pH of the water. This will make the water alkaline, but it will not incorporate any of the ionized alkaline water benefits which scientist have discovered. Only alkaline ionized water created by the water electrolysis process has those 3 health improving properties. Simply adding minerals or chemicals to raise the pH of your tap water is not the same thing, can be potentially life threatening, and does not incorporate any health benefits. Unfortunately, the water ionizer industry itself is very manipulative, companies like Kangen-Enagic spread misinformation to make people think they need to pay exorbitantly high prices for the alkaline water machines which actually will work and deliver the health benefits. They prey upon one of the most helpless sectors of society, the elderly, which are very vulnerable and susceptible to in person manipulative sales techniques. Other water ionizer companies have sprang up and attempt to ride on the back of Kangen by offering a competing machine at about 70% of the price of the Kangen SD501, saving the customer about $1000 to $1500 dollars over the Kangen unit, yet they collude among each other using misinformation and scare tactics such as poisonous water ionizer plates in an attempt to make people think they need to still pay a high price for the
. The truth is that there has never been 1 documented case of "poisoning" from water ionizer plates. In many cases, these companies are just as bad if not worse than the Kangen Enagic sales representatives. They offer a competing product at a slightly lower price, and misinform consumers with reports of titanium and platinum poisoning. They also deceive people by focusing on irrelevant issues like the number of plates, always increasing the number of plates inside their machines from 5 plates, to 7, now 9 plates, and even 11 and 15 plate models. Always making the customer think that they need to pay more for that water ionizer with more plates, is a common trick used to keep their profit margins at $2000 to $2500 per sale.
The fact is that over the past several decades, tens of millions of people worldwide have received alkaline water ionizer benefits from 3 and 5 plate water ionizer designs. If you are a fan of Kangen / Enagic water ionizers, and you have been drinking their water and you have noticed health benefits, take a look at their line of ionizers, you will see most of them have 5 plates inside. This constant push by water ionizer scam artist companies to deceive consumers with ever increasing numbers of plates, ever higher electrical wattage, and manipulation via scare tactics, keeps their profits high at consumers expense. As I stated before, it is the elderly who are the biggest consumers of water ionizers in the Unites States, and they are one of the most vulnerable sectors of society. Water ionizer companies know this, and will continue to use manipulative sales tactics to deceive people and keep the prices and their by their profit margins high. Only and informed consumer, who does the proper research, and who has common sense, will understand this truth. This website is here to shed light on this manipulative industry dominated by misinformation and scare tactics exploiting one of the most vulnerable sectors of American society.
112 In the 1880's, Louis Pasteur published his work on cellular aerobic respiration and glycolysis. In 1931, Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for his work on the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells, which was later summarized in his 1956 paper, On the Origin of Cancer Cells. His work on cancer expanded upon Pasteur's findings and described respiratory insufficiency and a cellular metabolism of glucose fermentation as the primary trigger for cancer progression.
Warburg's conclusions on cancer were much discussed in scientific circles, as they are academically elegant, but were not accepted by most members of the scientific community engaged in cancer research. Most cancer researchers in the late 1950's believed that the anaerobic metabolism of cancer cells and their accompanying output of lactic acid was a side effect or an adjunct effect of cancer, not a cause. Cancer research since the 1960's has focused primarily on genetic aberrations as causative for cancer, and has ignored the body of research on cancer pH and its implications for therapeutic approaches. Warburg's work was a catalyst for yet another research effort on the nature of cancer cells, beginning in the 1930's. A. Keith Brewer, PhD (physicist) performed experiments on the relationship between energized, oxygenated cell membrane and elemental uptake, vs. cellular membranes in an unenergized state such as cancer cells exhibit. He wrote a number of papers discussing the cellular mechanisms of cancer cells and the changes in metabolism induced or indicated by the lack of or presence of oxygen in combination with other elements, particularly potassium and calcium. He noted that cancer cells share one characteristic no matter what type of cancer: they have lost their pH control mechanism.
