Back in the early 70s or maybe in 1969, I remember reading about a Canadian lab doing laboratory tests on a chemical to see if it would cause cancer in mice. One of the researchers had the thought “What if there is something in out tap water that causes cancer in mice?” Ok, they did a study with three groups of mice, one was fed tap water as the normal control, one group was fed tap water plus the chemical and the third group was fed triple distilled water as the second control. After the study period was over and all the mice were dissected, it was found that the groups that were fed the regular tap water and the tap water plus the chemical had the same numbers of cancers but the group that was fed the triple distilled water showed an elevated number of various cancers, which shows that pure water causes cancer, no?
