Meeting with Michelin 3-star chef, Heston Blumenthal, at his home in Provence. We became quick friends. Heston runs The Fat Duck restaurant, west of Heathrow, and once called “the world’s best restaurant.” You’d think his prime interest would be food, but the day’s discussion quickly dispelled that notion...

It is now well-confirmed that hydrophilic surfaces including those within the cell generate structural changes in water. This interfacial water is ordered and acquires features different from the bulk. Amongst those features is the exclusion of...

Flow of electrical current through water is expected to increase water temperature. We passed low-frequency alternating electric current through distilled, deionized water using platinum electrodes and found, instead, a diminution of temperature...

Dr. Edith is a holistic medicine doctor (author of "SuperWellness"), who's been a long-time fan of our EZ Water research. She's well-informed on the new water science, so our conversation took many exciting and interesting turns. 

Questions & topics explored included:

  • "Nature is fundamentally Simple &...

When droplets of purified water (1–5 ll) were cooled from the bottom, they slowly and continuously supercooled before releasing latent heat as a transient burst of infra-red (IR) radiation. In order to determine the role of this IR emission, a thi...

Earlier studies have reported the formation of an exclusion zone devoid of microspheres at the interface of water with a hydrophilic surface such as Nafion® or the hydrophilic ceramic powder. We now report the formation of a ‘three-dimensional...

The surface of ice plays a significant role in melting. To better understand the role of the surface, we studied the melting of ice using infrared imaging and pH-sensitive dyes.

Ice was allowed to melt in baths of water of varying depths. When the...

The lab was pleased to host a visit by Rupert Sheldrake, perhaps the world’s leader in exploring areas of science that fall between the cracks, often deeply. Rupert drew a large crowd, some from the university and some from the local community, many of whom know well his many books. Rupert and his family...

Brownian particles suspended in water or other polar liquids are pushed out of the region next to hydrophilic polymers, leaving a microsphere-free region known as the “exclusion zone” (EZ). This study aimed to test the hypothesis that the diluti...
