Bottled Water for Cancer Patients

Aqua Delight Bottled WaterPure Delight recently announced the release of their new product – Aqua Delight – a bottled water that is free from the metallic, acidic, bitter, or otherwise bad taste associated with chemotherapy treatments. Metallic taste in the mouth is a common side effect of chemotherapy drugs, often making it difficult for cancer patients to eat or drink, leading to dehydration ranging from mild to life-threatening. Aqua Delight provides relief from this, making it easy for patients to drink water, thus optimizing their recovery.

So, how does it work? We don’t know. It’s a secret. The company has signed non-disclosure agreements that keep the technology behind this water confidential. However, there is a 100 percent money-back guarantee, and several testimonials on Pure Delight’s website indicate that most people are happy with the results this water provides.

The bottles are made from PETE 1 plastic, which exceeds FDA standards for safety, and there are no known issues with chemicals leaching into the water. However, it seems ironic that the company would choose to manufacture bottled water, rather than a specialized water filter that improves metallic taste instead. In general, bottled water is not sustainable, even though the plastic is recyclable. Non-sustainable living may contribute to the growth of disease – such as cancer. In the interest of sustaining life, you’d think Pure Delight would opt for a more sustainable product that lines up, thematically, with the company’s ultimate goal.

Metallic taste has also been reported as a side effect of pregnancy, allergies, dental disease and kidney disease, making the market for Aqua Delight even wider. What about you? Would you try it?

  1. I am terribly saddened to find out that Aqua Delight no longer sells a case to individuals!!

    I first found and bought it for my best friends husband when he had cancer. He LOVED it and was so happy to finally taste REAL WATER taste again!!

    Then, when my son was diagnosed, I bought it for him. He also loved it!

    I know have a friend who was diagnosed. This is one thing I love putting in a Care Package. And now I can’t.

    Again, saddened that I can’t buy it. :(

  2. I guess the reason why they don’t produce water filters is because they don’t want to package their filtration technology and sell it away to competitors who can easily copy it.

  3. I have tried it. I was sick for 9 months while I was pregnant, and was not drinking enough water. Room temperature water made me feel like throwing up (again). As a result, I would only drink water when I could get it ice cold. In contrast, I was able to drink a bottle of this water in about 8 seconds with no feelings of nausea whatsoever. No one in the house was allowed to touch my water!!! I highly recommend it to people who should be drinking more water, but aren’t because of the taste.
