The EMF effects on water are most likely due to structural defects in the water and the water memory may be ascribed to stable aspects of such defects. Magnetic exposure of water is widely used to inhibit scale buildup in heat exchanges, water storage systems and water pipes. Electric and magnetic fields affect the precipitation of barium oxalate, calcium carbonate and calcium sulfate, crystal growth rates of inorganic salts and stability of fluid suspensions. Electromagnetic field effects persist in fluids (in these situations, treated with PEMFs) up to several days after the EMFs are removed. EMFs affect diffusion of colloids (almost any substance microscopically dispersed evenly throughout a solution), surface free energy of calcium salts and change UV and Infra Red spectra of water.
Magnetic pre-treatment of water has been thought to enhance the yields of plants and livestock and affect paramecia, alter cell density and size of the nucleus diameter in catfish liver cells and affect the hormone cycles of mice. A patent has also been issued on a method of magnetically treating fuel (while not water, it is a fluid) used in motors, to enhance fuel consumption.
It has been shown that magnetically-treated water used in dental irrigators reduces dental plaque build-up better than untreated water. Treated water was also found to cause round worms to evacuate infested children better than controls in a Chinese study. Water coming out of certain lava flows from Japan that was naturally “magnetized” improved memory loss in Alzheimer’s patients. Other researchers found that treated water reduced kidney stones.
Therefore, PEMFs are expected to not only affect the water content of the body but may also be of some use in structuring the water we drink. How these observations can be used to positively impact health is only just beginning to be discovered.
