TAPPED

Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right, or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other article of commerce? Stephanie Soechtig's debut feature is an unflinching examination of the big business of bottled water: Tapped official website


Inorganic Contaminants in water:

Having health issues? Then you might be interested to read more about what can be the cause for your problem. Very important table about Inorganic Contaminants (Health Related) shows how the health problems can be connected to bad water. Click here.


What is pH?

ph-scaleAcidity and alkalinity is measured by pH (potential hydrogen) value. PH scale ranges from 0 to 14 where 0 is the most acidic, 7 neutral and 14 most alkaline. Venous blood has a pH of arterial blood is 7.37 - 7.43 pH. Ideally, our pH should move slightly on the alkaline side. Decrease or increase these values ​​below 6.8 on the acidic side and 7.8 on the alkaline side can mean danger to life!

Acidity becomes a problem lately. One thing is a lifestyle, haste, stress, lack of exercise and the like and the second thing is our eating habits. We accept more acidic foods these days. big part plays the beverages we drink. Tap water pH is around 7 (neutral), most of the bottled waters are moving rather below pH 7 and are therefore slightly acidic. However, a pH of soda drinks are around 2.5, which is strongly acidic. This means that Coca-Cola is 50 000 times more acidic than the neural pH. In practice this means that to neutralize one glass of Coca-Cola you would need to drink 32 glasses of alkaline water with pH 10. At the moment you start drinking alkaline water, you help your body in a difficult fight against acidity and improves your health. PH scale is logarithmic scale, so changing one pH unit means a tenfold shift in the concentration of hydrogen ions.

What is ORP?

ORP or oxidation reduction potential is a number that shows how powerful antioxidant or oxidant is the test sample (in our case water). ORP scale is for most raw materials in the range of about -400 to +400. If the number is negative, then it is water with antioxidant effects, and if positive, it is the water with the oxidizing effects. Most bottled water is in positive numbers, including those of quality, such as Evian, etc. as well as tap water will in most cases, positive numbers. Ionization devices are capable of producing water with ORP up to -400.

A little bit of chemistry

The combination of two Hydrogen atoms with one Oxygen atom forms the “miracle” substance of life on this planet called WATER. Water not only makes up 70% of the planet, it also makes up about 70% of the human body. A large majority of all we are physically is simply hydrogen and oxygen (2 atoms of hydrogen 1 atom of oxygen).

As it turns out, the function of these two atoms are essential to our body’s ability to live. Without oxygen, the complex human cell will not operate. The hydrogen atom is a major player in the metabolic and chemical reactions of body as well. The combination of these two atoms (water) plays a major role in all the processes of physical life.

A certain number of molecules of water (H2O) naturally dissociate into the hydrogen H+ ion and into the OH- ion. The relationship between the concentrations of these two dissociated ions is expression with what is called the pH scale. The term pH stands for “potential” of “Hydrogen”. The more hydrogen ions, the more acidic the solution is. The fewer hydrogen ions the more alkaline (base) the solution is. Just as the kilometer is a measure of distance, and the hour a measure of time, the pH unit measures the degree of acidity or basicity of a solution. pH is measured on a scale of zero to fourteen, with zero being most acid, fourteen being most alkaline and seven being mid-range.

Blood and pH

The pH level of blood is the most important balance systems of the body. Look at the importance of blood pH as shown below.

ph4

Normal blood pH has a very small window of acid/alkaline pH balance and must range between 7.35 and 7.45. This means that there is an adequate amount of oxygen in the blood. Any slight decrease in pH will result in lower oxygen levels in the blood and, therefore, in the cells.

Any drop in pH, no matter how slight, is the beginning of a disease state and affects when and how we age. All other organs and fluids will fluctuate in their range in order to keep the blood at a strict pH between 7.35 and 7.45 (slightly alkaline). This process is called homeostasis. The body makes constant adjustments in tissue and fluid pH to maintain this very narrow pH range in the blood.

A normal pH of all tissues and fluids of the body (except the stomach) is slightly alkaline. The stomach pH is much more acid than the intestinal pH because the stomach needs an acid environment (hydrochloric acid) to break down food for digestion. Whereas, the flora (good bacteria) of the intestine need a more alkaline environment to assimilate and process the nutrients from the foods digested by the stomach.

Most living things depend on a proper pH level to sustain life.

Commodities such as wheat and corn, not to mention other plants and food products, will grow best if the soil they are planted in is maintained at an optimal pH. To attain high crop yields, farmers must condition their fields to the correct pH value. Rainwater is naturally acidic (below 7.0 pH). Rain is typically around 5.6 pH but, in some areas, it increases to harmful levels between 4.0 and 5.0 pH due to atmospheric pollutants. Heavily industrialized areas of the US, such as the Midwest, have been targeted by various environmental agencies to minimize the pollutants that cause acid rain. The burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, releases gases into the upper atmosphere that, when combined with rain water, change composition and cause the rain water to become more acidic.
