The next thing that happens is that the positively (+) charged molecules want to steal electrons (-) from other molecules in our bodies. This is what causes free radical damage. A free radical is a positive ionized particle (+) that robs electrons (-) from our cells. They literally zap or pull away life force from the cell. Then once damaged, the cells start to allow unwanted toxic material and crud to attach itself inside our bodies.
When the life force keeps being robbed, toxins start accumulating at various areas throughout the body. This results in premature aging and an environment that allows disease to take hold. That is why there is such a buzz in the media and nutritional communities about anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants provide the extra electrons (-) to stop the zapping of life force and stealing of electrons from our healthy cells.
Acidic Water is Unhealthy / Alkaline Water is Healthy!
The second major problem with most of the water that we drink is that it is very acidic. More acid in our bodies is not good. In fact, many nutritionists believe that most diseases flourish and grow rapidly in an acidic environment. And guess what? Nearly all processed, sugary, fried and preservative-ridden foods are very acidic. As opposed to these “processed” foods, most fresh vegetables are alkaline. Well, what do you think our diets consisted of 100 years ago? That's right, fresh vegetables which are more alkaline. The same nutritionists also believe that most disease will not grow in an alkaline environment.
