Health Benefits Of Drinking Filtered Water

AquaOx will contribute to your overall health – inside and out – by filtering out many contaminants you ingest (drinking), absorb (showering, washing) and breathe (vapors from showering, running water, etc.). Many of these are either known or suspected causing-cancer agents. They can interfere with a variety of body processes. They can be toxic to many organs and tissues, including the heart, bones, intestines, kidneys, brain, liver and reproductive and nervous systems.

  • Drinking – The drinking of water containing contaminants allows these contaminants to enter the body. Many people already have concerns about their drinking water and its effect on their health. Carbon-based filters for refrigerator ice machines are magnets for bacteria if not changed regularly. An AquaOx whole-house filter eliminates need and concomitant risk of using ice machine filters. Brushing teeth is another opportunity to ingest contaminants from drinking water.  Again, AquaOx reduces the risk.

From a Study Published in the American Journal of Public Health:

“…these proportions suggest that about 4200 cases (9%) of bladder cancer per year and 6500 cases (18%) of rectal cancer per year are associated with the consumption of chlorinated water.”

  • Showering/Washing – Showering and washing your hands exposes your skin to harmful contaminants. Among the chemicals absorbed are cancer-causing chlorine and its derivatives. What’s more, the longer you shower or wash, the more chlorine you absorb because warm water enlarges your skin’s pores, facilitating absorption. This means showering in chlorinated water is much more dangerous than drinking the same water. In fact, while showering, your body absorbs 6 times the contaminants it does when you drink 8 glasses of water.
  • Breathing – Showering and running water cause chlorine and other harmful synthetic chemicals to become gaseous, making them easily inhaled.  Even the simple act of opening a dishwasher just after a completed washing cycle poses threats to your health. At this time, toxic volatized chlorine and cancer-causing Disinfectant Byproducts (DBPs) are released into the air. Once inhaled, these chemicals enter the blood stream directly—without the partial filtering effect of digestion. This can cause or aggravate asthma, and other respiratory problems.

From a Study Presented to the American Chemical Society:

“House holders can receive 6 to 100 times more of the chemical [chlorine] by breathing the air around showers and bath than they would by drinking the water”

  • Food Preparation – Washing fruit, vegetables, and meat as well as watering your home vegetable garden has the potential to spread contaminants to your food. AquaOx provides the healthy antidote.
