Water, Magnets, and the Quack Attacks

Magnetizing Water

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:

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.

    I have a question about magnetized water. I have always heard that electromagnetic fields emitted from cables and wires such as power lines, were potentially dangerous. Is this effect different than regular magnetic waves? Please excuse my ignorance of the science but this has been on my mind ever since reading about the magnetized water.
    Thank you for your help!
    Best regards,
    Carol

    I keep a daily search for magnet in Google. I am pleased when I find a health care profesional that agrees with y understanding of magnet effects on water.
    What do pseudoscientists do about MRI that depends on magnetict effect on water to get a clear radiographic picture?
    Illustration: if your cells ate with a spoon would it be better to feed them spaghetti or macaroni?
    When I explain to clients the change from lon chain to small circles that hapens under the magnet this ilustration helps them visualize. Often there is a hard congested area that I compre to a plate of cold spaghetti. Clients are amazed to watch it melt and be dispersed under the 3""x1/4"" neodymium magnet.

    Dear Mr. Barron:
    I would like to have your opinion on ""Prill Beads"" and their effect on water. (As given in a recent online article written by Dr. Howenstine) whom we greatly respect. Thank you for your kind attention.

    How can I tell which pole (on a magnet) is North?
    Thank you!

    Magnetic North is one of several locations on the Earth's surface known as the ""North Pole"". Its definition as the point where the geomagnetic field points vertically downwards (i.e. the dip is 90°) was proposed in 1600 by Sir William Gilbert, a courtier of Queen Elizabeth I, and is still used today. It should not be confused with the less frequently used Geomagnetic North Pole. Magnetic North is the place to which all magnetic compasses point, although since the pole marked ""N"" on a bar magnet points north and only opposite magnetic poles are attracted to each other, the Earth's Magnetic North is actually a south magnetic pole.
    To clarify, the pole that points toward the north was originally called the ""north seeking pole."" Later, that name was shortened to ""the north pole."" That means that the part of a compass needle that points north would be ""the north pole."" And since like poles repel, it also means that the pole of any magnet you own that repels the north arrow of a compass would also be ""the north pole.""
    Most fun way to tell, though - simply hold the magnet flat in the palm of your hand and lightly toss it into the air (not too high). 9 times out of 10, if the South pole is facing up, the magnet will go up into the air, and land flat back in your hand without ever turning over. If the North pole is facing up, it will flip in the air and usually land with the South pole facing up. Once you've identified north and south on one magnet, all of the others will stack up with that one in the same alignment.
    As for how Prill beads work and concerning the safety of constant magnetic fields versus the disruptive electromagnetic fields produced by the alternating current in power lines, check out my two part series on energy and healing.

    Wade:
    Either side of the filtration system will work. In fact, inexpensive whole house magnetic systems can easily be applied anywhere along the inline pipe.

    Wade:
    It's not an apples to apples comparison. In one scenario, you have water sitting in a large jar. So you have to wait for molecular movement to move all the water in range of the magnets. In the second scenario, you have a narrow stream of water moving between an array of magnets working from both sides of the water line. In other words, all water the water quickly comes in contact with the magnetic field.

    Hanging a magnet on a string, one side will
    point towards the earth's northpole.
    As opposites attracts each others - do you define the point of the magnet facing the earth's northpole - as the south side of the magnet?
    (This is in reference to attaching magnets to
    a watercontainer as you have outlined.)

    Should my home water filtration system first magnetize the water (AQUATOMIC AT-1000) then filter out the chlorine, flouride, etc. (AQUARIUS Triple AQ-435F ).
    Or should it filter the water then magnetize it?
    If it's the later, as I suspect, how is it possible to use the magnetic device for the entire house? Thanks.

    You stated that it takes atleast 5 minutes for the water clusters to seperate with the AQUATOMIC AT-1000 device.
    How can a single whole house magentic system work when the water passes by the magnet in a matter of seconds?

    Regardless of cost, which of the 3 Options below is the best for filtering/altering our tap water for optimal health and bioavailability?
    OPTION#1: Carbon Filter + Magnetize
    OPTION#2: Distilled/Reverse Osmosis + Catalyst Altered Trace Minerals
    OPTION#3: Alkaline Water Ionizer Machine (machine normally contains a Carbon Filter)
    Additionally, would it be of benefit to magnetize the water with OPTION#2 and OPTION#3 since they are already altering the water molecules?

    I recently read ""The Miraculous Poperties of Ionized Water"" by Bob McCauley and found it very imformative!
    Could you please recommend a good water ionizer. Or does your ""Catalyst Altered Trace Minerals"" provide everything that a good water ionizer can?
    Thanks again.

    The last choice sure seems the easiest and most expensive while the first choice would be the cheapest.

    Hi,
    I am Mojtaba Parhoon , student of environmental health in Iran . I read your study about " Magnetic Water" and i decided to perform this study in Iran but with some differences.If you dont have problem i ask you to send your other studies and articles in this field for me.
    kindly , im waiting for your reply if you do this you will help me alot.
    Sincerely yours
    Parhoon
