Water and Obesity

Obesity is a major health concern, but it’s a complicated problem to address because it usually requires lifestyle changes mostly involving diet and exercise.

L.A Touts Water in Obesity Fight

One out of six California kids are classified significantly overweight. The Health Department has launched a “Drink More Water” campaign posting posters, radio ads, bus shelters etc. with a WARNING: Soda, sports and juice drinks can lead to childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes.

All I can say is “Its about time”.

  • Only use the dishwasher and washing machine when completely full.
  • Do not use your toilet as a wastepaper basket.
  • Water your lawn in the morning or evening.
  • Do not use running water to defrost frozen foods.
  • Keep drinking water in the refrigerator.
  • Check for leaky faucets, pipes and toilets.
  • Take shorter showers or fill baths only 1/3 full.
  • Make sure your pool or spa is covered.
  • Use your garbage disposal less often.
  • Do not leave hoses or sprinklers unattended.
  • Make sure not to water paved areas.
  • Use a shut-off nozzles on your hose.

Do you know how much water you should drink?

Quick rules of thumb for drinking water:

  • Drink half your body weight in ounces of water (if you weight 140lbs, drink 70oz of water each day).
  • To start off maybe try drinking a liter of water every 50 lbs of body weight (if you weight 140lbs, drink 3 liters).
  • Carry a bottle everywhere with you as a reminder to keep drinking.
  • Eat raw fruits and vegetables – they are dense in water. You can get water from food, not just from beverages.
  • Drink water until you urinate frequently and with light color.

What is KANGEN Water?


Kangen actually has a meaning, “return to origin” water that is returned to the way it was originally available when the planet was young and secondly that the body returns to the healthy way it used to be before suffering the toxic and debilitating stresses of aging.

Kangen Water™ is created by a special process that was developed originally by the Russians in the 1800’s to create alkaline and acid water for industry. But in the recent past, highly innovative Japanese technologists figured out a way of using medical grade ionizing machinery that make it safe for long term human drinking and other uses. That’s been going on for more than 40 years, but it’s application to animals is a recent adjunct of its uses for humans. So far, although much more research is yet to be done, it is showing great promise by many users for pets and larger animals.

The main reported health benefit is derived by drinking the alkaline water that is produced through ionization, typically in the 8.5pH to 9.5pH range. Both humans and pets can use it safely, subject to certain commonsense usage (e.g., if a cat is showing elevated levels of alkalinity in the kidneys, high alkaline water is undoubtedly not a good direction in that specific instance unless and until that situation is straightened out). Potential users should keep in mind that the alkalinity increases are caused by virtue of electrical action, as explained below, as opposed to chemical and mineral additives that “store-bought” bottled high alkaline waters typically contain.

So how does Kangen Water™ get produced from an Enagic machine? In a word: electrolysis.
The filtered water comes in contact with medical grade titanium plates that have been dipped in medical grade platinum that is electrified by a powerful little transformer, charging the high alkaline drinking water (just push a button to select levels of 8.5pH, 9.0pH or 9.5pH) and creating three significant attributes: higher alkalinity, negative ionic charge (antioxidant) while breaking up globules of water molecules to create smaller clusters of water molecules which allow them to better penetrate the cell wall. The latter increases the level of hydration at a cellular level that simply cannot be attained with large clusters of tap water molecules.

This process allows for neutralization of many toxins, petrochemicals and induced chemicals like chlorine, while changing the pH, to create natural, healthy alkaline water taking the quality of the water back to its primordial origin, hence the name Kangen.
