III. Clinical Study: Alkaline Water and Obesity
The following clinical trial regarding the correlation between an acidic pH (acidosis) and obesity was conducted by Prof. Hatori Tasutaroo, Head of Akajiuiji Blood Centre, Yokohama Hospital, Faitama District.
“Due to a higher standard of living, our eating habits have changed. We consume too much proteins, fats and sugar. The excess fats and carbohydrates are in the body as fats. In the present lifestyles, Americans are more extravagant on food compared to the Japanese. Due to this excessive intake obesity is a significant problem. Normally, one out of five males and one out of four females are obese.
The degree of "burn-out" in food intake largely depends on the amount on intake of vitamins and minerals. The more proteins, carbohydrates and fats we take in, the higher is the requirement for vitamins and minerals. However, there is not much research carried out pertaining to the importance of vitamins and minerals.
Nowadays, many people suffer from acidification that leads to diabetes, heart diseases, cancer, liver and kidney diseases. If our food intake can be completely burned off, then there is no deposition of fats. Obviously, there will be no acidification problem and hence there should not be any sign of obesity.
The antioxidant water (or alkaline water) contains an abundance of ionic calcium. This ionic calcium (and other alkalizing minerals) helps in the "burn-off" process. By drinking antioxidant water, it provides sufficient minerals for our body. Hence, antioxidant water is a savior for those suffering from obesity and many adult diseases, providing assistance in enhancing good health."
Background information on Obesity:
Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse affect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy.
Body mass index (BMI), which compares weight and height, is used to define a person as overweight (pre-obese) when their BMI is between 25 and 30 and obese when it is greater than 30 (BMI = kg / m2).
Obesity is associated with many diseases, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, breathing difficulties during sleep, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis
Obesity is a leading preventable cause of death worldwide, with increasing prevalence in adults and children, and authorities view it as one of the most serious public health problems of the 21st century.
