Malaysia’s Health Ministry has said that it will take action against the sale or promotion of Kangen water, a certain alkaline water device which the device manufacturer claims is a health supplement able to aid in the treatment of 150 chronic illnesses.

Commenting on the alkaline water product which has been promoted as a “miracle water”, Health Ministry director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said: “The Health Ministry views such promotion very seriously because it can mislead people into believing the water can cure various illnesses. Under the Food Regulations Act 1985 under the Food Act 1983, all water packed for consumption must be approved and licenced by the Health Ministry.”

The Kangen water equipment though has earned a “medical device” rating from Japan’s Ministry of Health, Welfare and Labour.
