Answer:

Thanks for the question. I'm only now starting to follow the alkaline water debate. Intuitively, it makes sense to opt for alkaline water: since cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment, we need to create such an environment in our bodies. Since we are mostly made up of water, our drinking water is a logical good place to start.

We also know that many foods create an acidic environment (which cancer loves) like sugar and red meat - so we should avoid/limit those. Fruits and vegetables are mostly alkaline producings, so we also want to be sure we have plenty of these foods in our diets.

The one concern I have about artificially alkalinizing our water is this: is that what Nature intended? What was water like thousands of years ago before we started to pollute it? That's the kind of water we want to be drinking. I'd be interested in reading what others would like to add to the discussion!

Make it a beautiful day
