Oxygenation is part of the death process and is also part of the life process. But you don't want to overdose on Oxygen, do ya? We take antioxidants for our health which prevent oxidization, the "rusting" of the body. Why do we take them? Is it foolish or does it mean anything? If it means something, then what is the teaching behind it and does it apply to oxygenating water? There is also Ozone, which would kill you if you consumed it directly I believe, many times more powerful as Chlorine as a disinfectant, but they put it in a good deal of water because it dissipates in 20 minutes - - Logic would make you think that it might leave a residue or create a byproduct that isn't healthy as well. But it's in the water and all we can find on Google is fun "I don't know" answers like we're from the 1640's still trying to figure it all out. Ozone in air filters was banned once. How about firing UV light at water?* Maybe the end result of all this purification is just that: nothing. But what do we need in water that we're losing through purification? How do we know when we're over purifying our water? Keep in mind, the body is filled and covered with microscopic bacteria. We are symbiotic life forms and what's best for us isn't necessarily some stripped down H2O molecule. I mean, when did we start consuming directly from the Periodic Table of Elements? Maybe we need some of the microorganisms, the bacteria, the electrical charge. Maybe that's all good for us, too? I guess the main question I'm asking is what was really lost in the process of taking water that was originally running down pure glacial streams carrying rich minerals and electrical energy and microbial bacteria that was beneficial to the body... and replacing it with completely nuked water with Ozone and UV sitting in a plastic bottle at 7eleven?* What have we lost in that process and what have we added that is not good?* There are salesman in our world of profiteers that say that the most beneficial property of water that we lost is electrical and those salesmen push ionizers. There are others that say the most important aspect of water is the purity and the salesman push water filters. Then there are others who say that it's the PH, etc. etc., and each school of "thought" has its own accompanying sales staff. How adorable our world is. If we could just get the answer, how much more adorable it would be. And I guess the REAL, REAL question I'm asking is whether there is any non retail-sales based body of scientific knowledge? Is there any scientific knowledge not linked up to and end consumer product, because that's all I'm finding on Google. Now I'm here. Wow me. And I will love you.
