Category: The Rumor Mill

The sad fact is that once a water ionizer company reaches the point where it begins hampering sales of “Kangen Water Machines” it becomes fodder for misinformation and skewed truths.  Congratulations, Chanson USA – your success has sparked the rumor that Dr. Robert O. Young “endorses” your products because you pay him to only sell Chanson water ionizers.

To set the record straight on this rumor I reached out to Dr. Young to ask about his compensation arrangement with Chanson USA.  Here’s what I found….

This is a new spin on an old rumor but it remains just that – A RUMOR.

As the story goes, someone was treated for titanium poisoning – typically found in the jaw area – and it was traced back to their use of a Chanson (or other) water ionizer.  Before you buy into the latest version of the “if you don’t buy an Enagic water ionizer you could end up with titanium poisoning you should read this article.

Water Ionizer Rumor of the Week

Someone recently pointed out an article that claimed that water ionizers create “artificially alkaline” water.  The claim is that the alkalinity of the water is artificially raised through the electrolysis/ionization process – that the pH is “artificial” because of a gap between the pH of alkaline ionized water and the actual presence of alkaline minerals in the water.

This is yet another false rumor in a long list of misinformation out there about water ionizers and the alkaline water industry.  Here’s a rundown of the “artificial” claims and the facts about alkaline water created by water ionizers.

Question

Can Kangen Water Machines from Enagic run all day producing alkaline water?  According to many of Enagic representatives, yes it can!  It’s a popular selling point used by Kangen Water independent distributors when selling against other models.  “Enagic water ionizers can run all day if you want them to, without ever overheating or shutting down.”

But is it true?   We went to the source, Enagic USA, to determine the actual recommended run-time for their famous Kangen Alkaline Water Machines.

Okay – so admittedly I don’t do these on a weekly basis.  There’s just something about the propagating negativity that I find distasteful – at some point I’ll probably change this category to “Fact or Fiction” or something like that.

All that aside, there is something that has been rearing its head again recently that I felt the needed clarification/debunking.  Ray Kurzweil is arguably one of the most tireless scientists, researchers, writers, inventors of our time.  His honors, inventions, accolades and publications are too numerous to mention – and perhaps even keep up with.  What hasn’t this man done?

Well, from my research he hasn’t reviewed water ionizers.  Nor has he come out with an open endorsement of any one water ionizer company, brand, make or model…

Dr. Mercola stated that drinking alkaline ionized water was a “fad” that could potentially harm your health in his September 11, 2010 newsletter.  It was, and has remained, the source of many, many inquiries from people looking for the best option for drinking water.  Without research, without contacting anyone in the water ionizer industry that I could find (and I contacted every water ionizer company I work with), Dr. Mercola made the claim that “If You Fall for This ‘Water Fad’ – You Could Do Some Major Damage.”

In a recent interview with Dr. Gerald Pollack, Dr. Mercola was set straight about the potential benefits of drinking alkaline ionized water.

Sanastec_Enagic

Lots of calls and e-mails lately from people trying to get the facts on Enagic and Sanastec.  Sanastec claims to be offering the Enagic units and is blatantly using “Kangen Water” which Enagic claims to have exclusive trademark right to use.  Enagic reps have told many of the people I’ve spoken with that the Sanastec units are not the same in quality and are manufactured by a different company.  Another source on the internet claims that Hironari Oshira, owner of Enagic USA is also the owner of Sanastec.  So what’s the real deal?

I did some research myself.  I’m not jumping to any personal conclusions that I’d care to share publicly but I *am* willing to share the information that I’ve found.

Buyer Be Aware…

I’ve received a number of calls from shoppers asking if I could match the deal they were getting on another website.  Whenever possible I do this.  But I just couldn’t find a way to match these deals and stay within the guidelines of my dealer/reseller agreements.  How were these companies able to do this without violating their dealer agreements?

Well, I made some calls, asked some questions and found out.  The devil is in the details.  If you’re considering buying based on an offer of “free filters for 2 or 3 years” there are a few questions you should ask before accepting that deal – and a few things you should know….

Truth CompassI’ve been getting questions from customers concerned about “rumors” they’ve heard with regard to water ionizer warranty limitations and companies “voiding” warranties for different reasons.  Here’s the real truth about warranties from the major water ionizer companies….

I guess there will always be something new out there – I was shocked when a potential customer forwarded a document to me that claimed that the plates in non-Enagic high-wattage machines would melt.

If you apply just a bit of logic you will realize that the likelihood of these plates melting inside the units is just not very likely.  I won’t say “impossible” – anything is possible – I am saying unlikely.  Very unlikely.
