Here is a good video about your different drinking water choices.

It does advertise a product at the end...BUT the video is very informative

Don't do it! At best, the alkaline water thing is nothing more than a marketing gimmick designed to separate you from your money. At worst, it will harm your health.

Always drinking alkaline water is like taking antacids all the time. It's not good for you. Your stomach acid is between 1.5 and 3 pH. It needs to be there in order to break down the food you eat. Alkaline water will only serve to dilute that acid and cause your body to produce even more stomach acid in order to neutralize the alkalinity of the water.

Also, acidic conditions in places like your stomach and the urine helps to prevent microbe growth. The acid kills them while a high pH allows them to live and grow.

Cancer only grows in acidic bodies and the majority of Western diets are very acidic. However IMO we should be alkalizing through our food not our water.

Joe King is correct. So is newmisty, actually.

Water should be fargin neutral -- which is almost impossibobble.

When water is distilled, the pH is a perfect 7.0

But... just give it a few minutes, and it sucks a shitload of CO2 in, and turns slightly acid at about 5.8.

Yer bod is built for this second number. The first one would be better (TINS) but it does not occur naturally.

How Alkaline Foods Help Prevent Cancer

Alkaline Foods Starve Cancer Cells
It is a known fact that cancer cells survive in an atmosphere of less oxygen. As such, excess of oxygen causes their degeneration and death, hopefully leading to the disappearance of cancer. This is exactly where alkaline foods make their entry because it has been found that alkaline cells (i.e. cells with a high pH) have more oxygen retention and carrying capacity than any normal or acidic cells. When such an alkaline state is reached in an area in the exact neighborhood of cancerous malignant cells, it’s believed that it becomes impossible for those cells to survive. The reason is the excess oxygen that these cells are carrying supposedly leads to the destruction of the cancerous cells. Therefore, it is extremely important that we consume alkaline foods and hence prevent our body from becoming acidic and acting as a magnet for diseases.

Examples Of Alkaline Foods

For the most part fresh fruits, green vegetables, berries, nuts, and fresh dairy products are the best alkaline foods.
The highest ranked alkaline foods are lemons and watermelons. Next in alkalinity are celery, limes, dates, mango, figs, papaya, grapes, pears, asparagus, raisins, seaweed and vegetable juices. These foods are actually alkaline forming. By alkaline forming, we mean that when these foods are tested they will show up as acidic, but on digestion, the end product that is left is actually alkaline and helps increase the level of alkalinity of the body.
Foods that moderately alkaline would be apples, avocado pears, alfalfa, fresh green vegetables (like cabbages, broccoli and sprouts), turnips, all kinds of berries and more. Many moderately alkali foods are snacks that can be eaten throughout the day, and which should reduce the possibility of cancer to quite an extent. These fruits can be eaten at any time and with any meal to keep up your body’s alkaline levels.
The foods that are least alkaline, which are not bad for you but do not help your alkaline ratio much either, are almonds, brussels sprouts, coconut, onions, radishes, nuts, whey, mayonnaise, soy products and yeast. These foods will make little or no difference to your alkali ratio if eaten. If you’re attempting a cancer treatment, in order to get the best effects, you would have to intake the highly alkaline foods on a regular basis to really keep your body alkalized.

Alkaline Foods Strengthens Immunity And Prevents Cancer
It is always best to alkalize the body in a natural manner, and this is the reason you should intake lots of alkaline foods while attempting to prevent cancer. In fact, maintaining alkalinity in the body is presumed to help in strengthening the immune system. If our immune system is healthy, then we should have no fear of cancer; after all, cancer is just a by-product of a beaten-down immune system.

Simple Tips To Build-up Alkalinity
Here are some simple strategies that may help to gradually balance your pH level:
  • Soymilk or almond milk instead of dairy products
  • Elimination of red meat and reduction of any chicken or turkey
  • Elimination of soft drinks, soda, coffee – alkaline water and alkaline green drinks instead
  • Whole-wheat products instead of anything containing white flour
  • Big salads as a whole meal as often as possible, including tomatoes, zucchini, squash, cucumbers, almonds, avocados with pumpkin, sunflower, or sesame seeds
  • No processed, ready-made or fast food at all
Not only will your body be healthier, but also, you should actually feel healthier and more energetic. So start a diet today of alkaline foods, prevent cancer and stay healthy forever!

I heard long ago that in China there were 0 cases of breast cancer until the Western diet made it's way to the land.

Only because those are healthy foods in and of themselves.





Bottom line, you can't change your bodies pH by the food you eat. It's the same as drinking alkaline water. Ie: alkaline food just causes your stomach to produce more acid to get rid of any alkalinity you may injest.

Cancer only grows in acidic bodies
If blood is already tightly regulated to be slightly alkaline (7.35pH) no matter ones diet, all cancers are already getting alkaline blood delivered to them. If your blood pH is more than just a small bit off from that, there's a good chance you'll die.

Yes Joe, "Healthy foods" themselves because they are.....alkaline! They don't add acidity to the body maintaining proper body PH. Aren't you familiar with anionic properties as in with lemon? Acidic foods add acidity to the biological system creating an environment that cancer thrives in.

The fact remains that anything you eat or drink will be acidified by your 1.5-3.0pH stomach acid. It's like hydochloric acid in there. What happens when you add a bit of high pH stuff into a system that contains and produces acid? It becomes acidic, that's what. Digestion itself would be impossible if it didn't.
...and all I sayin' is that because of that fact alone, the alkaline water/food thing is myth. Anything alkaline is acidified when passing through the stomach and digestive system.

Ain't bacon one of the 4 food groups? If not it should be. Man eat bacon. Man conquer the world.

My simple answer is test the Lords water before the Elk pee's in it then follow his recipe. How simple can that be?

The legend of Santa Clause comes from the amanita muscaria mushrooms( red cap, white dot). The nordics would drink the urine of the deer who by eating the mushrooms, filtered out the toxins. Thus you have flying raindeer and the bag over santas shoulder is full of mushrooms. Something like that.

You should try adding a fried egg to that. There's a restaurant I know that makes a wonderful blt like that. It's my favorite sammich.
My friends mom just made one like that with a little mustard on it. Scrumptious.
