I found this article on the Hartford Courant website: Too little calcium, water linked to kidney stones.
Researchers in a study tracked 78,000 women in their 50s and 70s to find links to kidney stones. They found that women who got more calcium in their diet (in their food, not from supplements), drank more water, and consumed less salt had a lower risk of developing kidney stones.
Doctors used to think that kidney stones came from getting too much calcium but have now learned differently. It isn’t too much calcium, it’s whether your body uses the calcium or eliminates it. Calcium in your diet is more readily used than calcium from supplements. Other vitamins and minerals, like vitamin D, help the body to make better use of calcium.
Do you know someone who has problems with acid blood? What you drink can have a big impact on your blood pH level.
Why should you care about blood pH? Our bodies are designed to live happy and healthy in a narrow, slightly alkaline pH range. If we get much outside of that range we start to get sick, develop chronic problems, and will eventually die if we don’t correct it quickly.
I have always heard that reverse osmosis water purification systems are wasteful, but I had no idea how wasteful they really were until today.
I work with a network marketing company that sells water filters among other things, so I decided to do some research about other water filtration systems for your home. Of course, I’m hoping that when I’m done all of the evidence will say you should buy mine, but I’m trying to keep an open mind about what I find.
