The Fourth Phase of Water : Beyond Solid, Liquid, and Vapor based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Did you ever wonder how the heart could possibly push the blood through 60,000 miles of capillaries, or how water gets from the roots to the top of a tall tree? Why do you sink in dry sand but not on the wet sand of a beach, or use wet sand to build sand castles and sculptures because of its adhesive properties? Why does warm water freeze faster than cold water? Why is ice usually slippery but sometimes sticky? Most things contract and become denser when they freeze, so why does water expand when it freezes? These are some of the numerous questions answered in this fascinating book about the discovery of a new phase of water called EZ (exclusion zone) water. It is denser and more alkaline than H2O and since its formula is believed to be H3O2, it has a negative charge, and like a battery, can hold energy and make it available when needed. It has been estimated that 99% of the molecules in the body are water, but most EZ water is intracellular. The energy in this water comes from light, which may be why infrared saunas and exposure to the sun makes us feel better. Because it has more oxygen, EZ water might also mimic the wound healing effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Others have referred to it as "structured", "biological" or "living" water. Where does EZ water come from? It occurs as an intermediate crystalline stage when water is converted into ice and vice versa that could explain why glacial melt is believed by many to provide various health benefits. This water absorbs light in the UV region of 270 nanometers and the more of this it absorbs, the higher the EZ water content of the sample. Since it also retains this energy for long periods, many feel it supports the concept of "memory in water" that is the basis of homeopathy. In addition, samples of "holy" waters from Lourdes in France and the Ganges River in India show spikes in the 270 nanometer region suggesting a higher content of EZ water. As noted above, increasing the oxygenation of H2O by putting it under pressure also increases EZ water. While much of this seems like it would be tedious reading, the author has done a remarkable job in making complex issues readily comprehensible and explaining technical jargon in simple terms. All of this is significantly enhanced by copious illustrations and diagrams by Ethan Pollack, a very talented artist who happens to be the author's son. It is impossible to do justice to this fascinating and important book in the space available, but I suspect that most readers will find it hard to put down.
