Reduce Pesticide Residue with Alkaline Water

In the past few years the Environmental Working Group Organization (EWG) has been raising concerns regarding the health hazards caused by pesticide exposure. For this reason the organization released a list of the most pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables in 2011. Pesticides have been documented to cause cancer, allergies, autoimmune disorders (hyperactive immune system), decreased immunity (hypo-active immune system), systemic toxicity, organ damage, birth defects, low intelligence, diminished growth and development in children, endocrine dysfunction, hormonal imbalance, infertility, fatigue, headaches, loss of appetite, insomnia, neurological disorders, blood diseases, gastrointestinal problems, and unstable moods/depression to name a few.

Reduce pesticide residue with alkaline waterThe goal of course is to eat organic as often as we can, without giving up fruits and vegetables altogether. Sometimes this becomes impractical due to the distance or absence of community co-ops or farmer’s markets. This should not discourage anyone from consuming conventional or non-organic produce. High consumption of fresh, whole fruits and vegetables is still paramount when it comes to achieving optimum health, wellbeing, and speedy healing from diseases. Various nutrients necessary for human growth and function such as vitamin C, fiber, and thousands of powerful phytochemicals can only be obtained from whole fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, and sprouts. Meat and animal by-products can even contain more pesticides than produce due to the bio-accumulation of pesticides in the cells, tissues, and organs of these animals. No one has to pass up on the wonderful health benefits that fruits and vegetables have to offer.

Thankfully, consuming pesticides is not much of a problem anymore thanks to alkalized water. Washing your produce with tap water can only remove a small amount of pesticide from your food but there’s a trade-off that takes place. While it washes off a minimal amount of pesticides present in your produce, tap water will add its own contaminants to your fruits and vegetables. Wash and rinse your food with alkaline water instead. Water treated with Alkali-Life 7000sL Water Ionizer can significantly reduce the pesticide levels in your fruits and vegetables. This is due to the chemical reaction (“alkaline hydrolysis”) that occurs when pesticides come in contact with alkaline water. The higher the alkalinity of the water (pH of 9 or above), the faster and more complete the degradation of the pesticides It is very important, therefore, to wash or soak fruits and vegetables that belong to the EPA’s ‘dirty dozen’ list in alkaline water. Super alkaline water can also reduce certain fungicides and herbicides.

Finally, alkaline water does not leach out any of the vital nutrients and enzymes that are naturally present in fresh, raw produce. What it does is greatly reduce the pesticide content of your food, decrease the toxic health effects of conventionally grown produce, and remove the unnatural taste that certain inorganic fruits such as oranges, apples, and pears sometimes have. Protect your family from pesticides and chemicals by ordering the Alkali-Life 7000sL Water Ionizer today.

    before, mosquitoes aiuecrqd resistance to DDT a long time ago. When West Nile Virus arrived on the scene, there was a major program in Toronto to bait catch basins in order to kill the mosquito larvae. There was a fear of deaths of vulnerable individuals due to the virus. They still do monitor dead birds to see if the cause was WNV. Haven’t heard much on it of late . But the presentation does give wonderful insight in the importance and difficulty of getting new products and new paradigms of control.I think currently for bed bugs, the paradigm is early discovery , early treatment = better prospect of control in addition to the marshalling of stakeholders s good IPM . There was a nifty documentary about controlling tsetse flies in africa using a magic attractant called cow in a bottle .. not surei if we can find that one on the net, but i used to have a copy of it.. Truly wonderful work.Sam
