(NewsUSA) - Up until the mid-1940s, tooth decay plagued the nation. Case in point: in 1942, almost 10 percent of the 2 million men examined by the Army were rejected for service because they didn't have 12 solid teeth out of 32.
Then came fluoride -- a mineral added in small amounts to tap water that would harden teeth and protect people's pearly whites from cavities.
Since then, the debate over fluoride has escalated to become one of the country's most contentious health issues and concerns.
Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) insists there is no verifiable link between fluoridated water and illnesses such as tooth discoloration, hip fractures and bone cancer as some suggest, opponents of fluoride, aren't convinced.
"Our job is putting out safe water. We're not in the business of medicating people," Kevin Cridge, water quality supervisor at Hampton Shaler Water Authority, told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. "We shouldn't be doing anything that actually doesn't treat or purify the water."
Fast-forward almost 70 years, and now there are options for those who prefer to know what's in the water they're drinking. Bottled water can be a better option, but which brand? The choices can be mindboggling.
To get the most from the water you're drinking, you may want to opt for purified, enhanced water, such as Alkame Water. While other waters might satisfy your thirst, Alkame includes a distinctive alkalinity, as well as high levels of stabilized, dissolved oxygen that help maintain the natural pH balance in the body. In short, that means that a more balanced pH can help your body resist and fight illnesses. In addition to hydrating your body more effectively, Alkame can improve your metabolic function, boost your immune response and neutralize cancer-causing free radicals.
Better yet, there is no fluoride in Alkame Water.
"If someone were to ask me, 'What is the one thing I can do to have better health?' then the answer would be simple: 'Start drinking alkaline, ionized water,'" says Robert O. Young, PhD and author of the "The pH Miracle."
Alkame Water is based in Las Vega, Nevada, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Alkame Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: ALKM). For more information about Alkame Water, including how to have it delivered to your home or office, visit www.alkamewater.com.
