A quick internet search
found several other products that produce "alkaline
ionized water" with such claims as to help aging and cancer. A
quick search of the Medline literature found 6 references to "alkaline
ionized water", all from the same Japanese group. The scientific
literature showed that when given to pregnant or nursing rat females
and offspring, the animals grew faster. However, they also reported
significant cardiac muscle pathology. No other data were presented,
certainly none on increased life span or reduced risk of cancer.
Any health related claims should be regarded with caution.
