If you're like me, you might wake up in the morning and drink a glass of water, take a shower, eat food that has been cooked in water, perhaps go for a swim later in the day, and then drink more water.
Or maybe you wake up, have a glass of water, exercise at the gym and use the water fountain, shower in the locker room, and drink a bottle of water on your way home.
Or perhaps you travel, drink a cup water on the airplane, take a bath at your hotel, and perhaps visit the beach sometime to dip your toes into a river, lake or ocean.
Regardless of who you are, you're probably drinking water and cleaning yourself with water every day.
So it's important to ask: is all water the same?
Or does the type of water you drink and use actually matter?
In other words, could some water help you, and other water hurt you?
Now before you go running for the hills expecting me to sell you some overpriced water filter or try to get you to join a super-special, multilevel marketing “magical “water club, allow me to clarify:
The purpose of this post is not to sell you fancy water. It's just to let you listen in to my phone call with a University of Washington professor, in which I ask him all the dumb questions I wanted to know about water.
So in today's audio episode, I interview Dr. Gerald Pollack, an expert researcher in the area of water and what it means to your health. Dr. Pollack is a professor of bioengineering at the University of Washington, and has discovered a ground-breaking theory of water.
During our discussion, you'll learn the answer to the question”Is All Water The Same”, and also learn:
-Why water is absolutely central to cell biology…
-Why water is rarely discussed when describing muscle physiology and contraction…
-How water inside an organ affects the health of that organ or the functioning of the proteins within it…
-Why it is that the molecules, such as the proteins, within our body can't be viewed as a molecule by themselves, but must be viewed as the molecule plus the water…
Here is a good video presentation from Dr. Pollack as well:
If you enjoyed this episode, you should also tune into our other water episodes:
-Earlier this year, in an interview with Dr. David Getoff, entitled “How To Reduce The Risk From Swimming in Chlorinated Pools and Drinking Chlorinated Water.” (and we also discuss water filters in that episode).
-Before that, we had a podcast that asked: Are You Getting Scammed By Alkaline Water, Ionized Water, Magnetic Water, Oxygenated Water or Structured Water?
