There are a lot of people who believe that drinking alkaline water has made a significant improvement in their health; and whether it's drinking more water in general -- especially if the individual is now replacing other less healthy beverages with water -- or the fact that the water is alkaline, I certainly can't say. While I have read quite a bit about the benefits of keeping the body in a more alkaline state, it has just always made more sense to me that eating the right foods, rather than using sophisticated and expensive filtration systems to change the pH of water, was a better and simpler way to go. In the following "Health Tips From The Professor", Dr. Steve Chaney takes a look at alkaline water and ionized water from the viewpoint of a scientist. At the end of the article, you'll find a link to a handy list of acid/alkaline foods and a simple, inexpensive way to have clean, great-tasting water!
