What are the Pros and Cons of Alkaline Water?

Alkaline Water is water with a pH level higher than 7.0, making it less acidic than standard tap water.  What is pH Level?  The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. Liquids between 0-7 are considered acidic and those between 7-14 are considered alkaline. To provide a substantive comparison, wine generally has a very acidic pH level between 2.5-3.5 and beer a little higher at around 4.0-5.0 (Driscoll, 1986). Seawater is around 8.0 and cleaning detergents have extremely high pH levels of 12.0+. There are a number of contradicting accounts of the health impact of pH levels of drinking water. The World Health Organisation (WHO) states there is 'no health-based guideline value is proposed for pH.' However it is widely...
