View Full Version : Does RO or alkanizing water make bad water good?
01-10-2010, 11:26 AM
I live in a town that may have contaminated water. We even have Erin Brocovich leading a lawsuit. They think some tannery gave away sludge for years for farmers to spread on their fields. To make it more believable both my husband and I were diagnosed with cancer withim 6 months of eachother.
Anyway, I am trying to decide if a distiller or RO or even alkalizer would make poison water good? I actually have a distiller and an RO machine, but I am wondering if I should buy water rather then purify my own. What do you think? Thanks for opinions, Kathy

Not sure of the science of RO but I would be buying my water if I lived there. Not saying bought water is great but I would think its at least not contaminated like your sounds like it is.
I am sorry about your cancers. Have you both beaten it? Raw food and lots of greens seems to be a good way to go.

We're both doing great. We both chose to do tradtional treatment supplemented by green juice, green juice, green juice. Oh, and I made my husband drink that special cancer tea essiac or something like that. He called it pond water :)

Good to hear. I've heard of that tea. Tastes that good eh??!

I'd do some more research and speak with the manufacturers. I'd have what we have now for washing yet, for straight drinking, I'd get bottled water. I'd also move.

We'd love to move but as you can imagine you can't give a house away aroud here. We actually have had our house on the market for months, asking about 30,000 under the value of the house (we have equity) and have not had 1 bite. Not 1.

Me and brethren live in an old house with old piping 'n such that we suspect could leech nasties into our water, so we regularly get Mountain Valley Spring Water. We get it in 5 gallon glass bottles. You could ask your local healthfood stores or... water places if they have it, and/or check their website for suppliers.
I agree with Revvell about speaking with the manufacturers. We've used RO water for almost 30 years, but I don't know if I'd trust it under these circumstances.

>> if a distiller or RO
not this type for me
>> or even alkalizer would make poison water good
depends on price and design then

An R/O uses a 3-stage filter - two cheap ones, a high-quality membrane, and a holding tank. Unless you know exactly what's in the water, and exactly what the filters are capable of filtering out, it would be very risky to use tap water.
And it's not only a question of what is in the water, but also capacity - how much can the system filter out, in terms of quantities/parts-per-million of the harmful substance(s).
If you ask the manufacturers, you also run the risk that their desire to advocate their product may be stronger than their concern for public health. I could almost imagine a tech or salesperson talking to you on the phone, with a bottle of Evian on his desk. I know this may sound cynical. Even if I knew all the facts and figures, and was assured quality control, I still wouldn't take the chance.
Best of wishes for your recovered health!

this has nothing to do with water, but everything to do with curing cancer...

I wouldn't trust that RO would get out everything, but I would trust that distillation will - but only IF you double-distill it. You could actually double-distill it and then get it tested.
Many feel though that distilled water is "dead" water. and is acidic. Others feel that you can mineralize it or eat lots of mineral-rich foods.
We're about to test our well-water.
I also agree that spring water in glass jars is a good way to go.
Is the cancer rate in your area particularly high?
01-11-2010, 09:53 AM
Yes lots and lots f cancer and even more brain tumors. Of course the government still has not said this area is a "cancer cell" but we all know thats coming. As of now we ship in all of our dirt for raised beds, but I have been thinking abot the water thing for awhile. Like I said earlier I have been vacillating between RO and distillation but recently a local health food store started selling alkalized water. Thats when it hit me that how can you make poison water good? Esp since we don't know what the poison is. I am going to call and start buying our water.
