When you buy a water ionizer, you expect to get fresh, healthy, and most of all pure ionized alkaline water. But if you buy the wrong ionizer, you may get something else in your water that you didn’t bargain for: BPA. Cheap water ionizers, such as those made in Taiwan and China, use inferior materials in their construction, and that includes piping made with plastic that contains BPA.
How BPA may affect your health
Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a potent endocrine disruptor, which means it mimics the hormones in your body. It may cause hormonal problems, especially in women. It is also mutagenic which means it may cause cancer. Specifically, the FDA has mentioned that it may have adverse effects on the brain and the prostate gland in children. For adults, the main concern is that BPA may be linked to a higher incidence of heart trouble. There is less evidence that shows potential links between BPA and obesity and diabetes. While the research is still preliminary, why would you want to take the chance?
Beware of the FDA approved plastics scam
Some cheap brands of water ionizers claim to be made with FDA approved plastics, but watch out: FDA approved plastics are NOT approved for use in water treatment devices like water ionizers. FDA approved plastics are for food storage only! Worse yet, FDA approved plastics can and in many cases do contain BPA. The only way you can be sure that your ionizer doesn’t expose you to BPA is to buy an ionizer that is 100% BPA Free.
Antimony: Another threat lurking in cheap plastics
BPA isn’t the only problem with cheap plastics, they also contain antimony: A toxic heavy metal. Antimony in the plastic used in a water ionizer is a serious problem, because alkaline water pulls antimony out of plastic resin! Especially if the water has been sitting in the ionizer for an extended period of time (such as overnight) antimony will leach out of the plastic, and into the water.
Cheap water ionizers are made of cheap materials
Ever wonder why most water ionizers cost $1,500 or more, and others don’t? It’s because cheap ionizers are made of cheap materials. For example, the Aqua Ionizer Deluxe cuts corners by not using a platinum coating on its plates. Because of that, anybody who drinks the water made by an Aqua Ionizer Deluxe is drinking water tainted with titanium dioxide, along with any chemicals that leech from the cheap plastic the machine is made with. Life Ionizers actually had the plates from an Aqua Ionizer Deluxe tested by Metallurgical Engineering Services Inc. The test results revealed that the plates were made of 100% titanium, with zero trace of platinum! The Aqua Ionizer Deluxe is a dangerous machine, you should not drink the water from it under any circumstances!
