I'm looking for more info on a topic that a friend of mine turned me onto... Something called disease markers in our drinking water. Anyone heard
It goes something like this...
Water is perpetual on Earth, and although it takes many forms, it is never really destroyed, just recycled over and over and over again. Based on
that supposition, the glass of water that you drank at lunch today was the same water that some dinosaur drank millions of years ago and then peed out
and that countless other people and animals have used for cooking, bathing etc...
Now for the science...
Water properties change through processes of heating and cooling, which changes the molecular bond structure of the water. Example: Heating water
causes it to become steam or evaporate into clouds, whereas cooling water causes it condensate or freeze. This repeated heating and cooling, in
conjunction with pollution causes the Hydrogen bond angles to break down, thus making it more susceptible to carrying disease markers. Currently
global measures of the Hydrogen bond angle of ordinary H2O is about 104.4 degrees, with distilled water being the worst at 101 degrees. From what I
have read, healthy bond angles should be about 114 degrees in order to not attach to disease markers and make it easier for the water to pass through
our cell membranes.
The theory states that the widened bond angles allow for disease markers to attach to the individual water molecules and will prevent said molecule
from passing through our cell membranes. As a result, the disease markers become trapped in our bodies breeding diseases such as cancer and the like.
As the water is recycled, the disease markers it picks up along the way stay with it infecting other people and animals.
Well, that's it. That's all I know on the subject and I haven't been able to locate any other material on this. Has anyone ever heard of this?
Have links to info about it? Is this and old wive's tale or is their scientific or medical merit to this? I'm curious. Thanks in advance.
