Scientists Say Mineral Water Kills Cancer

Scientists say that mineral water from wells near the Queen's Balmoral Castle in Scotland kills cancer cells and destroys diseased ones. Researchers from the department of biochemistry at the University of Maribor in Slovenia said that they placed diseased cells in this water for 10 days and compared them to those placed in normal lab water.

They found that the mineral water stopped the growth of colon cancer cells 62.5 percent more quickly than normal water. In another instance it killed 35 per cent of liver cancer cells and 21 per cent of cervical cancer cells.

Martin Simpson, managing director of Deeside Water, said the water was not a miracle cure. "It is not a replacement for any treatment, but we hope it may complement medical therapies and also make a positive contribution towards a healthy diet, as naturally functional water with benefits for all."

"Water is our largest single source of daily nutrition and the basis of health, so the quality of the water we drink has a profound effect on our well-being, particularly in the longer term."
