Although this video does not cover Enagic® or water ionizers in general, this video does demonstarte the go-green friendly nature of these waters.
It's nice to know that the average family can receive these same exact benefits from a water ionizer produced from Enagic®. Keep in mind that salt or a saline solution is one of the key ingredients in order to produce these waters.
Problems Relating to Food-borne Illnesses:
E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, campylobacter and mold are the most prevalent pathogens threatening the safety of our food.
Pathogens like these are building resistance to many products and methods currently used to control the pathogen problem, due to their chemical nature. In addition, these products are often toxic and environmentally harmful.
Some basic facts:
These illnesses affect approximately 77 million U.S. residents per year. As a result, 320,000 Americans are hospitalized annually. 7,500 die from these illnesses each year. One-third of food-borne illnesses are caused by improperly handled or prepared meat, poultry and produce.

The problems associated with plastic bottles!
Take a look at these facts:
Americans will buy an estimated 25 billion single-serving, plastic water bottles this year. Eight out of 10 (22 billion) will end up in a landfill.
-- Container Recycling Institute
Bottled water is a rip off - consumers spend an estimate $7 billion on bottled water in US each year.
Worldwide 2.7 million tons of plastic are used to bottle water each year.
1.5 million barrels of oil is used annually to produce plastic water bottles for America alone - enough to fuel some 100,000 U.S. cars for a year.
-- Earth Policy Institute
Imagine a water bottle filled a quarter of the way up with oil. That's about how much oil was needed to produce the bottle.
-- National Geographic
The bottled water you purchase is often in #1 PET or PETE bottles (polyethylene terephthalate), which may leach DEHA, a known carcinogen, if used more than once.

The ecological damage caused from plastic waste is spiraling out of control. This video is a sobering reminder of why we need to start acting responsible when it comes to supporting bottled water manufacturers.
A Growing Problem:
"In 1990, Americans bought 1.1 billion pounds of plastic in the form of bottles, according to the Container Recycling Institute. In 2002, they bought more than three times that - 4 billion pounds."
-- Christian Science Monitor
Increasing evidence of adverse health effects tied to Bisphenol A, or BPA a widely used chemical in the manufacturing of plastic polycarbonate bottles, including baby bottles, water bottles and food / beverage containers.
Like all plastic, these bottles will be with us forever since plastic does not biodegrade; rather, it breaks down into smaller and smaller toxic bits that contaminate our soil and waterways.
Along with plastic bags, plastic bottles are one of the most prevalent sources of pollution found on our beaches.
Many studies show that the quality of bottled water may be no better than tap water.
