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.

To give some context, many people buy a water ionizer to remove deadly contaminants from their tap water. Tyent filters remove and reduce a host of toxic elements, including notorious carcinogens such as Chromium-6.

So, what if you bought a Kangen water ionizer, only to later discover that not only does it provide scant information about the contaminants that its filters actually remove, but that a potentially carcinogenic substance is known to exist at the heart of the Kangen water ionizer itself?

It’s hard to comprehend, but true.

Water Technology – Do Cacti Have the Answers?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On June 22, 2018 11:27 am

What’s the newest advancements in water technology? Can we talk about cacti for a moment?  Those iconic, prickly stalwarts of countless movies and cartoons depicting dry, airless deserts are amazing things and we don’t use the word lightly.  Like any other living thing, cacti need water to live.  As they usually live in parched, arid conditions, cacti have developed incredible systems in order to survive.

Water technology advancements
Who’s a clever cacti?

Water Carefully…

Those prickles are actually leaves, modified to prevent roaming animals from eating the plant, but also to conserve water.  Their roots are shallow but spread widely, in order to grab as much rainfall as they can, given the opportunity.  Some varieties of cacti can soak up 200 gallons of …

Water ionizers are something that we think of for adults, but can water ionizers make an impact on your kids’ overall health?

Summer is now close enough to touch.  The air already carries the scent of sunscreen and kicked-off flip flops.  Soon it will be thick with the tang of dropped ice cream on hot pavements and barbecue scents wafting through the air from your neighbor’s yard.    

Water Ionizers to the Rescue!

Help! My Friend Is Trying to Sell Me a Water Ionizer

Posted by: Rhona Reid On August 8, 2017 7:00 am

There’s a special kind of shadow that descends over even the most loving friendships once one party – I’ll call her “Jane” – discovers the wonders of Multi-Level Marketing, or “MLM.”  I’ve seen friends there before with candles and “natural” skincare products of dubious origin.  This time, it was the turn of Kangen and their money-spinning (but not saving!) modus operandi.  

What do you mean you don’t want to buy a Kangen Machine?
Friends with Vested Interests?

“Jane” started to talk about how her friends should buy a water ionizer.  Fine, you might think.  But we should only buy a Kangen Ionizer.  From her.  To be fair, I loved the idea of the health benefits of ionized water, but

Is Kangen Water the Only True Ionized Alkaline Water?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On June 8, 2017 12:00 pm

Well, is it?  Of course not!  That’s a little like asking if Chanel No. 5 is the only perfume. One of the first fragrances to gain international recognition and celebrity endorsement (Marilyn Monroe was a fan) — even the iconic No. 5 cannot claim to be the only true perfume out there.  By the same token, Kangen Water is not the only ionized alkaline water!

The original is not always the best.
A Brief History of Water Ionizers

Originating from Japan, Kangen ionizers were among the first domestic water ionizers to become widely available.  Back then, there was little to no competition in the field.  Now?  It’s a very different story.

Who’s the Best Right Now?

Tyent Ionized Alkaline Water Machines VS Kangen

Let’s Do Some Comparative Shopping of Water Ionizer Brands


Bottle on $$  It is no secret that bottled water is big business.  Each year, literally billions of dollars are spent by consumers the world over in search of a better alternative to tap water.   

You can’t blame people for wanting to drink water that doesn’t contain all the dangerous chemicals found in city water, however, with prices averaging around $1.45 per bottle, that can get pretty expensive over the long haul and then there are quality issues as well.  

Nearly 25% of all bottled water is merely glorified municipal water, which translates to tap water from another city that has been cleaned up by any number of processes.  Not good.  There are
