rocks.  Imagine what it does to people's arteries.<<

This is exactly the same pseudoscientific nonsense that the local Culligan
man and Kinetico guy tried on me to get me to install their water filters,
purifiers, and softeners. I asked them to leave when they got to this
point. Your body is not at all like plumbing pipes. Not in any way
materially or in biological functioning. This "sludge" is predominantly
harmless or beneficial minerals and does NOT in any case stick to your
arteries or "build up" as. Sludge in your blood or other body fluids. To
think so is...well...I stop here because this level of misinformation or
ignorance helps feed the sales charlatans across the continent who play on
people's ignorance and fear.

Again, do what you wish, but please get the biology right if you intend to
keep the thread going.
