Mineral Supplement Linked to Dementia

The Telegraph newspaper recently reported on a study which found an increased risk of dementia in women taking calcium supplements, who have previously had a stroke.

“Patients who had survived a stroke were  seven times more likely to go on to develop dementia if they took the daily supplement, say scientists at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden.”

Reassuringly, organic calcium found in food is perfectly safe. As Eve Kalinik advised in her recent blog for us: Mythbusting: Osteoporosis, there are plenty of food sources of calcium, as well as lifestyle changes, that can be taken by women seeking to reduce their risk of osteoporosis.

We know from our Mythbusting blog series that inorganic minerals found in tap water and supplements do not support health, cannot be absorbed by the body, and are therefore unnecessary – and according to the study the Telegraph reported on – downright dangerous, in some cases.

Neither mineral supplements, nor tap water, nor ‘remineralised’ water is useful to our bodies. All the minerals we need as humans can only be derived from food; plants convert inorganic minerals to organic, which the human body is capabable of asbsorbing and putting to use to protect our health.

Check out the rest of our Mythbusting blog series to learn more about minerals and health (we also tackle that other common myth, alkalinity). And read the Telegraph article here.

Toxic Arsenic in Cornish Private Drinking Water Supplies

List of carcinogens substances

Pure H2O RODI Removes Carcinogenic Arsenic from Private Drinking Water Supplies.

A recent study published in Science Reports reveals that some homes in Cornwall with private water supplies (PWS) have levels of arsenic exceeding World Health Organisation guidelines. As a result, householders are

“exposed at concentrations harmful to health… chronic exposure to arsenic in drinking water is a well-documented cause of numerous cancerous and non-cancerous health defects, including cancers of the lung, bladder and skin.”*

How does this happen?
Cornwall is one area of the world with naturally-occurring high levels of arsenic in its geology. The 2016 study by Middleton et al reports there are estimated to be 20,000 – 30,000 PWS wells in Cornwall, with 2,462 PWS households registered with the Drinking Water Inspectorate (the actual number may be much higher). These PWS are the responsibility of their owners and users, rather than any statutory body.

What can be done?
The government advises “installing appropriate treatment that is capable of treating water to a consistently satisfactory quality”.

Our patented Reverse Osmosis with De-Ionisation (RODI) process is the most efficient and cost-effective way of treating your private drinking water supply, ensuring total removal of Arsenic along with a myriad of other contaminants and impurities both naturally-occurring and man-made.

Additional Benefits of the Pure H2O RODI Purifier

Our RODI purifier protects your health and gives you total peace of mind about the safety of your water. And not forgetting that it gives you delicious tasting water, more palatable than any other. It is purer than all bottled water brands and kind to the environment, with a 95+% carbon footprint reduction compared to bottled, and zero plastics use and waste.

Our RODI purifier is typically installed under your kitchen sink for maximum convenience, but we can tailor our systems to suit your needs and would be happy to advise on the best installation for your home.
