Water and Our Ecological Footprint

Water is vital for life and has become one of our most precious resources. According to a Wall Street Journal article “Water Is the New Oil.” This article states the following facts: 1. There is no more fresh water on Earth than there was a million years ago . . . but now 6 million people share it. 2. The population has doubled since 1950 but water usage has tripled. 3. Worldwide, water related diseases account for 80% of all sickness and claim 5 million lives annually. 4. Air pollution, oil spills, wastes and (chemical) fertilizers have exaggerated this health impact. 5. At least 70,000 chemicals are used regularly throughout the world. 6. At least 1,000 new chemicals are introduced every year. Another article entitled, “Plastic Ocean”, states that there is a swath in the Pacific Ocean twice the size of Texas that is nothing but a plastic stew. This epidemic has resulted in plastics becoming a part of our food chain. These plastics are known hormone interrupters and have been linked to testicular, ovarian and breast cancers, infertility and birth defects. The ever growing eco tragedy of plastics in the environment is multiplying at an alarming rate. In fact Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour! And 9 out of 10 of these bottles end up in landfills rather than recycling centers. You may be wondering what all of this has to do with a water ionizer. Enagic’s water SD501 water ionizer is the eco solution to many of these eco problems. In fact, the International Earth Environmental University (IEEU) was so impressed with this particular ionizing company that it presented Enagic with its coveted award for environmental excellence. The IEEU recognizes the positive environmental impact that this ionizer can produce. The articles in this section point out some of the environmental problems we are facing due to chemicals and plastics in the environment as well as some of the possibilities we have to eliminate many of the chemicals and plastics in our environment through the use of ionized water.
