The Carcinogenic Substance Inside Kangen Enagic Water Ionizers

Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 14, 2021 12:00 pm

There’s a problem with Kangen water ionizers, and Enagic – the company behind the products – is seemingly burying its head in the sand.

Recipe time!

Growing up, I always soaked lentils overnight before cooking them. It was an old wives tale that soaking them in this way, and even adding a little baking soda to the water, helps soften the legumes and even may help digestion and reduce gas and bloating after eating.

For me, this process has always been something that I do when preparing lentils. The baking soda is basic (alkaline) so instead, I have been soaking my lentils in alkaline water from Tyent! I’m …
