A Hit and a Myth: All About Clustered Water
- Category: Water Articles
Clustered water is an off-shoot from the study of structured water. The theory goes like this:
- Clustered water is a structure of water molecules that look like a snowflake. This is not to be confused with actual hexagonal water structures. This is all theory. It was abundant on the planet at one time in the distant past, but now only exists in ancient glaciers, glacial streams, and a few other areas of the planet, and also surrounding the cells of fetuses, and babies.
- There are two types of water 'cells'; bound, and clustered. Bound water is missing one electron from its outer orbit (I am not endorsing this, just explaining the theory. In reality, a molecule has no 'outer orbit'. Only atoms have them, and it would have to be one of the oxygen atoms missing the electron, because hydrogen only has one.). Clustered water is not missing any electrons.
- We are all born with clustered water around our cells. As we age, the usable clustered water becomes bound to other molecules in the body, making it too large to pass through cell membranes, and as such unusable. This happens at a particular rate over the course of your lifetime, causing premature aging, and other problems. Why the body cannot convert the 'bound' water back into the usable form is not addressed, nor where the fetal clustered water comes from, if not the mother.
- There are devices that can create clustered water (but nature can't?). Again, this is not to be confused with actual hexagonal, or structured water, which has documented benefits.
Another facet of this 'theory' is that “The DNA in each of our cells, which determines how we grow and what we look like, is folded around a core of this remarkable water.” In reality, DNA is a helical molecular structure made up of 4 nucleotides; adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine. How they bond determines our individual genetic make-up. As a helical structure, it would be impossible to 'fold' DNA around anything. If this clustered water goes away as we age, then what happens to the chromosomes? And how about the equally essential RNA molecules?
Needless to say, the theory has more holes in it than a good block of Swiss cheese. Don't be confused by the terminology. Clustered water is not the same as structured, or hexagonal water.
