Iíve covered why Kangen water is good for you so itís time to look at the reverse of that and see why people are saying that Kangen water is bad for you, firstly Kangen water is not a drug handed out to your by your doctor and is not a medicine, the Kangen machine does not add anything special to the water and it does not filter out everything thatís contained within the water.
All a Kangen machine does is make tap water alkaline by the process of ionisation and provide basic filtering to filter out solids from the water in the same way that any other water filter can filter water, if the tap water used for the Kangen machine contains metals or salts then the resulting Kangen water will just be an ionised version of water with those same metals and salts.
This is both good and bad because many of the minerals and salts present in tap water are essential for your bodies health, so filtering these essential salts and minerals would deny your body these essential salts and minerals, and if that was the case you would have to make sure that you also drank unfiltered, unionised water to make sure that your body still got these essential salts and minerals, the Kangen machine does not filter salts and minerals so no worries about losing these from the tap water.
Thatís both a blessing and a curse, because some salts and metals like lead are bad and should be filtered form the water supply, however thatís not the job of a home grade water filter, if the eater that is coming into your home from the piped supply is unfit for human consumption then that is an issue that you have to get fixed first before you start filtering your tap water or making your tap water alkaline, no water ioniser is going to fix bad water.
A Kangen machine and other makes of water ioniser, use the ionisation process to create alkaline water, alkaline water tastes nice and that should be enough of a reason to drink ionised water, proponents of water ionisation will say that drinking alkaline water means that your bloodstream will be less acid and therefore healthier, however your body does need an acidic stomach to function properly, does that mean that drinking alkaline water could reduce stomach acid, no tests that I am aware of have been performed and Kangen machines and other water ionisers are for sale legally and indeed in Japan the Kangen water machine is classified as a medical device, so no known side effects to the stomach of drinking alkaline water.
Some people think that ionising the water will help remove chlorine and fluoride from the water and other salts, die to the ionisation process, if this does in fact happen and there is no conclusive proof the itís a nice to have rather than a scientific fact, of course if you wanted fluoride in your water then this might be a concern, but remember there are not actual fluoride filters in the Kangen machine itís just the water ionisation process, so some if not all (the jury is still out) of the fluoride will be present in Kangen water.
There are known side effects of drinking huge quantities of alkaline water in the same way that there are known side effects of drinking huge qualities of anything, the side effects of drinking too much alkaline water are feeling sick, vomiting, confusion and tremors on the face and hands, how much is too much, drinking gallons of ware a day will wash the essential salts and minerals out of your body, thatís the same for drinking huge quantities of tap water to and not specific to alkaline water.
