Water, Magnets, and the Quack Attacks
Back in November 2005, I published an article by my good friend, Michael Pedersen, President of Aquaspace Water Systems (subsequently posted on www.decluster.com). Michaels’s article talks about the bio-availability of water and how it can be altered by the application of magnetic fields. Since then, Michael’s article has been attacked as pseudo science on several sites, including: http://www.chem1.com:80/CQ/clusqk.html.
The fascinating thing about these diatribes (in addition to their mean spiritedness) is that they only argue theory. They tell us what is impossible (based on a particular scientific explanation), regardless of what may be observed in the real world…even by other scientists. They are like the engineers of urban legend who proved that bumblebees can’t fly, thereby leaving you with the question, “Are you going to believe what’s been ‘scientifically’ proven, or what you can see with your own eyes?”
And the answer, of course, as with the bumblebees, is that the wrong questions have been asked and the wrong science applied.
For example, science says that water is diamagnetic, which means it should not be affected by a magnetic field. That’s it by definition. If we accept this statement at face value, we need go no further; every subsequent statement we might make about magnetic fields applied to water are, by definition, utter nonsense. But in truth, the reality is quite different. There are numerous proven, studied, and cited examples of water being affected by magnetic fields, despite the bumblebee science that says it cant’ be. For example:
- It has been demonstrated that the near infrared spectrum and refractive index of water can be affected by a strong magnetic field.
- It has also been discovered that the melting point of water increases slightly in a strong magnetic field.
- Water, even with its diamagnetic nature, has been levitated using strong magnetic fields.
- A statistically significant difference has been demonstrated in supragingival accretion volumes between conventional irrigation and using an irrigator with a magnetic water treatment device. In other words, magnetized water gets rid of more dental calculus.
I could go on indefinitely citing validated, scientific examples of magnetic fields changing water. You can search them out yourself on the net. But….
In the end, it all comes down to bumblebees. Are you going to believe what you’re told, that water is diamagnetic and can’t be affected by a magnetic field, or what you experience for yourself? Here’s a link to a newsletter that tells you how to build your own device for testing whether magnetic fields work on water or not. You can check it out for yourself for pennies (something, stunningly, not one of the detractors has deigned to try for themselves – preferring to argue only in the abstract). No one’s selling you anything here. There’s no agenda -- just an opportunity to answer the question for yourself: does the application of a magnetic field change water.
I can tell you that in five years of playing with this, I have had something over 300 people do a side by side comparison of treated and untreated water, and so far we’re running 100% who could taste the difference. 300 out of 300 does not look like a placebo effect. Try it yourself. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll have the basis on which to form an opinion.
