The Alkaline Myth EXPOSED

The alkaline myth is a health scam being run by Marcus Rothkranz, a health “guru” who thinks women can avoid pregnancy by eating a raw diet. Marcus’ advice is definitely sketchy. He advises you not to worry about protein on the same webpage where he’s trying to sell you protein powder!

The $4,000 alkaline water scam EXPOSED

Dr Rafael Castillo was “shocked” when a relative of his paid $4,000 for a Kangen Water machine. He called it an alkaline water scam. But is it? Yes. The way the Kangen Water machine is sold is scandalous, and something must change. Enagic casts aspersion on the entire water ionizer industry by the way they market the Kangen machine.

Does your water need more ions? – A Rebuttal

An article in Slate magazine written by Kent Sepkowitz asks one of the most ridiculous questions I’ve ever heard: Does your water need more ions? Any chemists that read that question must have been shaking their heads. More than what? Sepkowitz doesn’t say, because he’s too busy trying to establish

Alkaline Water Machines – Fact or Fiction?

According to Wikipedia, a water ionizer “is a home appliance which claims to raise the pH of drinking water via ionization; in order to achieve a variety of health benefits. Such claims contradict laws of chemistry and physiologyand are unfounded”. Wikipedia makes that claim based on claims made by retired professor Stephen Lower on his chem1 website. Is

Why Alkaline Water is not Micro clustered

Are micro clustered water machines for real? Some brands of water ionizer claim to microcluster water molecules into hexagonal rings of six molecules. That ‘micro clustered’ water is supposed to be more hydrating than plain water, but is it? Yes, the water made by the machine is more hydrating than

Can Water Ionizer Plates Overheat or Melt?

No. It is physically impossible for water ionizer plates to melt or overheat. A water ionizer’s plates are made of platinum coated titanium. It’s impossible to melt or overheat the plates because their melting point is way too high. Platinum melts at 3,125 F (1,768 C) and titanium melts at

Is Ionized Water the Silliest Food Fad Ever?

A recent article published in The Denver Post by Dr. Kent Sepkowitz contained so many gross inaccuracies about the chemical properties of ionized water that I felt a rebuttal was in order. Below is Dr. Sepkowitz’ description of how a water ionizer works, it lacks even a shred of scientific

What is Hexagonal Water?

Hexagonal water, also known as restructured or microclustered water is pseudoscientific scam used to describe the alkaline water made by a water ionizer. The term is nonsense; it refers to water molecules that supposedly are arranged in hexagonal rings. But water molecules don’t cluster together in liquid form; they only
