Since I saw a post by someone who claimed alkaline water *cured* her diabetes, I thought I would post this as a response. Really, if it were that easy wouldn't we all be doing it? Wouldn't her 800# have a constant busy signal? Beware the MLM marketer my community friends.
The primary claim is that drinking 'alkaline ionized water' will help flush out 'harmful acidic' wastes and thereby help cure and prevent disease. However, the spiel also claims that 'alkaline water' will help cure everything from cancer to gout to diabetes.
Are any of these claims true?
Sadly, they are at best 'junk science' and at worst, especially where promoters are making money out of this medical/scientific myth, fraudulent. The scam is supported by a handful of self-proclaimed health 'experts' who should know better. Further investigation reveals that many so-called 'experts' recommending water ionizers have no formal scientific qualifications that would qualify them as 'experts' to comment on the complex field of human bio-chemistry.
