The link between dehydration and cancer formation in the body is undeniable, according to scientific research and the findings of F. Batmanghelidj, M.D., as published in the October 1987 Journal of Anticancer Research.
The main purpose of this post is to summarize Dr. Batmanghelidj’s findings. Apart from scientific validation, when we understand the importance of water in the human body and know the underlying causes of cancer, I believe common sense also tells us that the link between dehydration and cancer formation is real.
In order to understand the connection between dehydration and cancer formation, we have to first look at what causes cancer.
What Causes Cancer?
The primary cause of cancer was discovered (or at least scientifically recorded) in the early 1930s by Dr. Otto Warburg.
In fact, in 1931 he won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his findings! In essence, Dr. Warburg found that the cause of cancer was primarily caused by a lack of oxygen and other nutrients to the cells due to toxic accumulation and acidosis in the body.
Dr. Warburg wrote: “All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen, a rule without exception. . . . Deprive a cell 35 percent of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.”
So, what is the link here between dehydration and cancer formation?
Water is the primary transport of oxygen to the cells! Water is also the primary transport for the removal of toxins out of the cells and out of the body. Lack of oxygenation and toxin accumulation also make the body much more vulnerable to systemic proliferation of microbes, such as certain bacteria, viruses, and fungi that are associated with cancer.
In fact, some experts believe that the microbes themselves can cause cancer. I guess it is the old analogy of the chicken and the egg. Which comes first -- problems with the cellular environment (perhaps beginning with dehydration) or an excess of certain microbes in the body?
And here is at least part of the problem: Millions of people are chronically dehydrated and don’t even realize it because the human body is so adept at managing the drought condition. The dehydrated body will pull water from less critical areas of the body to preserve the function of critical organs. However, there are serious consequences of prolonged drought in the body.
In fact, according to Dr. Batmanghelidj, cancer is the final outcome of prolonged water shortage in the body.
Hydrate Your Body for Cancer Prevention and Recovery
Dehydration and cancer formation are integrally linked for all of the reasons mentioned above (and there are many more).
Keeping the body well hydrated is a key lifestyle factor in cancer prevention. I believe drinking filtered water is the single most important element in any cancer treatment program. This is not to say, of course, that water alone can prevent or cure cancer. I am saying that without proper hydration, every form of treatment (conventional or alternative) will be far less effective. The type of water you drink is also important. The water must be filtered of most contaminants without removing the natural occurring minerals.
Drinking alkalinez, ionized water is becoming well- known in many of the alternative and traditional cancer clinics.
The reason for this is because this type of water can increase hydration 6 times, improve cellular oxygenation, remove toxins safely and effectively, and provide a powerful antioxidant to reduce the damaging effects of toxins and acidic waste in the body.
I consider ionized water as a highly effective, non-toxic, disease prevention remedy.

When it comes to supplements, the word “hormone” tends to scare a lot of people off. It conjures up images of professional bodybuilders shooting ungodly amounts of chemicals into their arms, or women taking dangerous medications that have the potential to screw up their monthly cycle. So if you’ve heard of the health benefits of something like HGH gel - only to look it up and find “hormone” in the name - you may be a little skeptical about trying it.
Let’s clear up the confusion. Because at the end of the day, not only is human growth hormone natural and safe, but it’s also a POWERFUL compound that can do absolute wonders for your health.
What Is Human Growth Hormone?
Human Growth Hormone (or HGH for short) is a naturally occurring hormone in the human body. Generated by the pituitary gland in the brain, it’s primarily responsible for being the catalyst of growth in children and teenagers. But it’s also involved in a long list of other bodily functions in adults as well. This includes muscle and bone growth, controlling blood sugar, and regulating body composition.
As you might expect, the production of human growth hormone is highest in children and teens, drops off in our early 20’s, and then starts to gradually taper off from there as we age. While this is a normal part of the aging process, there are a number of benefits that can come from increasing HGH.
What Are The Benefits Of Human Growth Hormone?
Because it’s involved in so many different bodily functions, the list of benefits is pretty extensive. Let’s start with what most people (particularly men) have traditionally used these supplements for. Since the hormone plays a strong role in regulating healthy tissue, it stands to reason that it also plays a role in the production of muscle growth. And that’s absolutely true. Higher HGH levels have been shown to increase collagen in the muscles and tendons, leading to a higher capacity to add muscle to your frame. But you don’t have to be a guy looking to get jacked to enjoy the benefits of more growth hormone. Since it’s one of the key factors involved in fat burning and weight maintenance, there’s a lot of research suggesting that it can actually help with the weight loss process as well (in fact, this is one of the reasons why extremely overweight individuals have such a difficult time losing weight, since their bodies start to lose sensitivity to a number of hormones). On top of that, HGH has been shown to help build stronger bones, reduce healing time from injuries, and may help with sleep and psychological conditions.
What Does The Research Say About SAFELY Using An HGH Supplement?
While growth hormone supplements were popularized by bodybuilders looking to maximize muscle growth, they were originally intended to treat patients suffering from chronic deficiencies. This is a rare condition, and is typically caused by an unusually low functioning pituitary gland. While rare, the consequences of chronically low HGH are severe, and can include an inability to regulate weight, weak bones, reduced exercise capacity, sleep issues and depression. However, recent research has shown that these supplements can do wonders for people even if they don’t suffer from abnormally low levels, and can help you show improvements in all the areas we covered in the previous section.
But how safe is it? And what are the side effects?
Generally speaking, HGH is typically only available in the US with a prescription, and is usually administered by injections. While there can be side effects, they tend to be minimal - water retention, joint pain, and blood sugar issues are included among them. hile some of those side effects may ring alarm bells for you, it’s important to note two things. The first is the fact that, under the supervision of a medical professional, using proper, FDA approved injections results in only extremely minor side-effects (if any), and these can be mitigated.
The second is that these side effects only really apply to injections, and prescriptions are only available for a small number of medical conditions. Tablets, spays and topical creams like SOMADERM™ HGH (which don’t require a prescription) come with lower doses, and have none of these side effects.
How Can You Raise Your HGH Naturally?
While a high quality HGH supplement will do wonders for your health, there are natural ways to boost your growth hormone as well. In order to get the most bang for your buck, we strongly recommend combining the two.
Fortunately, a lot of the steps required to naturally jack up your growth hormone come in the form of healthy, common sense lifestyle choices. Lifting weights (yes, women too) and getting enough exercise will do wonders for your HGH levels. You can also look at adjusting your diet. Foods that are high in protein and amino acids have been shown to increase hormone levels. Finally, getting a deep, restful night sleep is critical. Levels are higher at night than in the daytime, and growth hormone is secreted during your sleep cycle, so if you’re not already getting quality sleep, start doing it now.
What To Look For In An HGH Supplement
The first thing you want to do is make sure whatever supplement you’re using is FDA approved. There have been a number of black market HGH supplements (including injections) over the years. While it may be cheaper to go this route, you’re really playing with fire, since you have NO IDEA what other compounds are in there and what effect they may have on your health.
That’s why we carry SOMADERM™, a product that’s registered with the FDA, so our customers have the peace of mind of knowing they’re using something that’s safe and effective. SOMADERM™ also has the highest legal dose available without a prescription, giving you the most bang for your buck and ensuring that you start getting all the benefits associated with human growth hormone
Those living with diabetes are more susceptible to dehydration...
The Earth is made up of 71% water, 75% of a living tree is made up of water, our bodies are made up of 60% water, and the human brain alone is made up of 75% water. It is no secret to us that water plays a role in almost every aspect of the world and is vital for us to live a long, healthy lives. But, for those living with diabetes, water is even more important. Why? Those living with diabetes are more susceptible to dehydration, making water an even more crucial element to living a healthy life.
First things first, what is diabetes? Diabetes occurs when either your body does not produce enough insulin, or your body is unable to use insulin properly. Diabetes causes your blood sugar to rise far too high for your body’s natural functioning. High blood sugar causes symptoms such as: fatigue, nausea and vomiting, stomach pain, shortness of breath, increased thirst, and increased urination. Two of these symptoms are the culprits of diabetics’ dehydration – increased thirst and increased urination.
Staying hydrated can make a world of difference in a diabetic’s life. Lengthy and intensive studies conducted have found that diabetics who drink an average of 36 ounces or more of water a day are less likely to have high blood sugar than those who drink less than 16 ounces a day. How easy is that! Drinking enough water each day is one easy way diabetics, and non-diabetics, can ensure they are doing all that they can to keep themselves as healthy as possible!
Our bodies have a hormone called vasopressin. Vasopressin is an anti-diuretic that works with the kidney’s in determining whether or not to release or retain water. Vasopressin levels rise when our bodies are dehydrated. When vasopressin rises, it tells the kidneys to stop producing urine and tells the liver to keep releasing glucose. So, while our body is trying to rid itself of the extra glucose, our body is also preventing itself from a way to release the extra glucose! These are the kinds of situations that can lead to diabetic comas. Just another reason to drink enough water and stay hydrated to help regulate diabetes!
Drink more water! It sounds so simple right? You’re probably thinking, what’s the catch? While there is a catch, it has an easy solution! The catch is – quality water! While tap water and bottled water are healthier alternatives to soft drinks and other beverages, it has been found that many pollutants and useless minerals can be found in both of these types of water. Researchers have found that there have been 315 pollutants in America’s tap water since 2004. Many of these pollutants are also unregulated and can exist in ANY amount legally! It is also no guarantee that bottled water is any healthier. The only difference between bottled and tap water is the added minerals, which have no real health benefits.
So what kind of water SHOULD we drink? Easy, alkaline water. Alkaline water is water that has been ionized to increase its pH levels. You’d be surprised by the number of great things alkaline water can do for you when incorporating it into your diet! Alkaline water is more hydrating than normal water. Due to the ionization, the water molecules are easier for the body to absorb. Alkaline water can also help your immune system due to its neutralizing acidity and since alkaline water is rich in helpful minerals such as magnesium and calcium, it also helps keep your skeletal system healthy. If you are looking to try alkaline water, KANGEN WATER is a fantastic option if you’re interested in incorporating alkaline water into your diet!
So, if you are a diabetic looking for a simple solution to help manage your diabetes, ditch tap and bottled water and try adding alkaline water into your diet. See the benefits for yourself!

Why Ionized Water is Essential
If you are an athlete, chances are you probably haven’t given a lot of thought to the water you are drinking. Sure, you probably understand that water is important, both for your performance and for your health. And you probably know that you should be drinking more of it rather than less. But what a lot of athletes fail to realize is just how critical it is to not only drink enough water but to drink the RIGHT water.
Why Hydration Is Important for Athletes
Let’s start with why it’s important to stay hydrated in general when performing your sport. Again, this may seem like something that everyone learns in their high school gym class, but a lot of athletes simply don’t know how far the benefits go.
We’ll start with the most important reason for athletes - staying hydrated will improve your performance. A LOT. One study found that a simple decrease of just 2% of body weight in hydration levels can impair athletic performance, while a 5% decrease reduces your capacity for work by a whopping 30%. So yes, drinking enough water isn’t just a little important when it comes to playing your best - it can literally make or break your game. But proper hydration isn’t just important on the field or the court. Drinking enough water throughout the day is an important part of your diet. For many athletes, maintaining a consistent intake throughout the day not only leads to feeling better overall, it also leads to greater feelings of satiation, making it easier to keep up with your diet and not fall off track (this is doubly important if you’re involved in a sport that requires you to stay lean).
How Ionized Water Is Different Than Regular Water
Most athletes pay very little attention to where their water comes from. After all, “water’s water”, and if you’re drinking enough of it, all is well. Right? Well, it’s not that simple. And if you’ve been drinking nothing but the bottled stuff (or worse, drinking from the tap) you may be leaving a lot of benefits on the table. Ionization is the process of taking water and treating it specifically to increase its pH level. The result is a reduction in overall acidity, leaving you with water that is alkaline and high in antioxidants. Making the switch from regular to ionized water has several profound health benefits, including better immunity and improvements in blood pressure and cholesterol. But it also has a number of benefits that are specific to the athlete looking to maximize performance.
The Benefits of Ionized Water for Athletes
We’ve already discussed the massive importance of hydration on your performance. But hydration isn’t just a matter of getting in more water, it’s a matter of getting in the right water. At the end of the day, alkalized water is simply superior for athletes. During the ionization process, the molecules become significantly smaller, making them far easier for the body to absorb, resulting in faster, more efficient hydration. In addition, going with ionized water comes with numerous other sports-specific benefits as well. One of the major benefits is the management of acidity. As you exercise, your muscles begin to produce a great deal of acid. While this is perfectly normal, it can lead to a few unpleasant issues, the most common being the dreaded post-exercise muscle soreness that all athletes are familiar with. By drinking alkalized water, you’re effectively helping to bring your body’s PH levels up and correcting this imbalance. This is one of the major draws of ionized water for athletes - the fact that it can dramatically improve and speed up recovery. In addition to reducing muscle soreness, the fact that it's rich in antioxidants helps the body flush out any acids and free radicals produced during exercise.
How Much Ionized Water Should You Be Drinking as An Athlete?
As an athlete, you probably know that you should be drinking more water than the general population - but how much more? Most people should be aiming for about 1/2 to 1 gallon of water per day, regardless of activity level. This is typically enough to provide adequate hydration for the average person. For athletes, you’ll want to be following these guidelines plus taking in additional water around your training and competition. Generally speaking, anywhere from 50-75 fl. oz. spread out from the pre-workout/competition phase to the post-workout/competition phase is a good place to start. Much of this will depend on the particulars of your sport. An athlete engaged in a long-duration activity in which they will be sweating a lot (soccer, lacrosse, etc.) will require more water than an athlete involved in a short-duration activity. And there is, obviously, a threshold to all of this. We’re not saying you should be drinking so much that you start to feel bloated and sick. However, as a general rule, it’s better to get a bit too much than too little, and we encourage you to use these recommendations as a guideline and experiment for yourself. The bottom line is this - if you are an athlete, you need to be taking water seriously and investing in high quality, alkalized water. It's one of the best things you can do for your performance and health.
KANGEN WATER® has been filtered through an extensive process, designed to aggressively rid it of any chlorine and impurities, before being separated through the process of electrolysis. The result is an alkalized, anti-oxidant rich water from your tap water in your home. All of this means you get the peace of mind knowing that the water you’re drinking is safe, free of environmental toxins, and optimized to help you make the most out of training and perform at your best.
Staying hydrated is an important part of having a healthy family.
Staying hydrated is incredibly important for both you and your family. When you are hydrated, you feel your best and can do more throughout the day. Our bodies are 60% water, so we need to replenish ourselves often. However, most of us do not get enough water, which can lead to dehydration. Dehydration can cause mild problems like a headache or sluggishness to serious consequences like overheating or loss of consciousness.
Despite its importance, staying hydrated can be difficult. It is hard to remember to drink water throughout the day, especially when more exciting drinks like coffee, juice, and soda are easily available. If you’d like to learn more about how to stay hydrated, we have you covered! Here are five ways you and your family can stay hydrated during the day.
The best way to help your kids drink water is to make it fun! Create a game out of drinking water. For example, encourage them to drink water before they eat or indulge in milk or juice. You can also play a game to see how much water everyone drinks during the day. (We’ll talk more about this later.) You can also buy a fancy water bottle for your children to drink out of. Many water bottles come with kid-friendly characters or can be decorated by your child to make it their own. Most kids like being like mom or dad, so you may want to buy a miniature version of the bottles you use.
For both kids and parents, keeping track of your water intake can help you see how much water you are (or are not!) drinking during the day. For kids, you can create a sticker chart, so they can check their progress. You can have a friendly competition to see how many stickers each child can get. If the adults don’t want to write down their water intake, then use an app on your phone that can help you stay on track. There are many different food tracker apps that also include water tracking, so you can know how much you have drunk and whether or not you need to drink more water.
You can motivate yourself to drink water by enjoying water that have been treated specifically to improve your health. And depending on where you live, bottled and filtered water is a great resource since tap water may taste funny or not be filtered well. For example, alkaline water is a great way to ensure that you are drinking the best water for your body. Alkaline water has been treated so that the pH is perfectly balanced. This water also tastes better than tap water, making it more pleasant to drink. KANGEN WATER is a great option to try if you are interested in drinking more alkaline water.
To help increase awareness about hydration, include your children when it comes time to give pets water. You can have an assigned task, like a part of their sticker chart, or remind them to check the pets’ water bowls each time they drink water. If you have a bigger animal, consider investing in a bowl with a tank attached so they have water all the time. This is especially important if you live in a warmer climate! If your pet seems tired, loses their appetite, is excessively panting, or isn’t peeing as much, then take them to the vet. They may be dehydrated.
Drinking water is the best way to stay hydrated, but you can also get water from your food. A diet full of fresh fruits and veggies helps you get plenty of water throughout the day. Encourage your children to eat veggies with every meal and to snack on fruit during the day. Not only will it give them important vitamins and minerals, but also lots of water! Meat can also be a great source of water, so eating lean meats like chicken and turkey is also recommended.
Staying hydrated is an important part of having a healthy family. Remember that drinking water is best, but 100% fruit juice and low-fat milk are also good options. It’s important to drink low calories options, so you get your main fuel from food. Remember to be patient with yourself and your children as your family works to becoming better hydrated. Start with small goals and work your way towards drinking water all the time. It may not seem like much, but it is a very important part of staying healthy. Making these good choices everyday will add up to a lifetime of healthiness!
