I bought a Kangen and was told that it removed flouride and pharmaceuticals. I was even given a very nicely printed flyer stating these "FACTS"...
it was the MAIN reason why I bought the unit. After a few months of drinking the alkaline water I got a really bad taste in my mouth, literally. This was not the result of a cleanse detox, it was different. It felt like something was wrong with the water.
So I switched to neutral pH and The Taste seemed to go away. Then when I had to replace the filter, I got online to purchase a new one and I kept searching and searching and none of the filters said they removed fluoride and pharmaceuticals like I was told. You had to purchase a completely separate filter canister along with another filter and then have it attached to the Kangen machine to remove flouride/pharmaceuticals. When I called the company to confirm this, they said that indeed it did NOT remove fluoride and pharmaceuticals.
So I told them that I was lied to by their representative, and wanted to return my machine. Their response was, " we are not responsible for what our Representatives tell you"... therefore tough shit, you're stuck with your $3, 000 basic carbon filter machine and I wasn't even drinking alkaline water because it tasted like crap. So fine I kept it.
I am utterly disappointed with Kangen as well as the Integrity of the people that sell their machines. I could've purchased the same thing on Amazon for $800. The machine is truly a ripoff, the price is jacked up to pay everyone in the pyramid yet they lie to make a sale and then can't back up their product. I'd also like to add that I have had more health problems since I switched from drinking delivered spring water to Kangen water.
Most lukely because I was drinking fluoride and all kinds of crap that my body wasn't used to with the spring water . I had a major Dental infection and had to have three teeth pulled, It has aged me and also caused my cat to have urinary crystals. I measured the TDS and it was 300 ppm coming from the machine. This excessive particulate and can cause kidney stones, gall stones and all sorts of health problems.
S. I really wanted to love this machine
