In an effort to produce mass quantities of healthier H2O, Chinese scientists have come up with a new method to change water's chemical composition. It involves making light water.

Natural water has tiny amounts of D2O molecules, deuterium and oxygen, mixed in with the dihydrogen monoxide. Deuterium, also called heavy hydrogen, is an isotope of hydrogen that contains one proton and one neutron. In North America, typical drinking water has a deuterium concentration of about 150 ppm, roughly equivalent to a few drops per every quart.

Water with higher concentrations of D2O is known as heavy water, and it is harmful to plants and animals. By contrast, water with hardly any D2O - or light water - can boost the immune system and benefit plant and animal health, according to several studies. In one study from 2003, plant photosynthesis increased with the use of light water. A study involving mice blasted with ionizing radiation showed a dramatic difference in survival between mice that drank light water and mice that drank regular water. It is even used as a cancer treatment for humans: In 2008, researchers reported that light water noticeably lengthened the lifespan of terminal cancer patients.

Given these positive effects, it seems smart to provide greater quantities of light water for public consumption. But it's hard to produce - current methods include electrolysis, distillation, a high-temperature exchange method that uses hydrogen sulfide, and desalination from seawater, according to authors Feng Huang and Changgong Meng of the Department of Chemistry at Dalian University of Technology in China. These methods are either expensive, inefficient or bad for the environment.

The authors propose a new method involving a platinum catalyst, which quickly removes deuterium from water using cold and hot temperatures, according to the American Chemical Society. The result is water with a deuterium concentration of roughly 125 ppm.

The method could be the basis for industrial-scale light water production - and a new way to produce huge quantities of healthier water for the masses.

While this article does provide links to the astounding research conducted by a few different groups, all of the experiments reported have been conducted using deuterium-depleted water only. The most remarkable evidence of cellular regeneration will soon be obtained using pure lightwater, comprised of 0% deuterium and 100% protium, as described in various aspects throughout this author's latest book, Lightwater [ @ ]

Highly advanced technological information provided during many well-reported contacts by extraterrestrial visitors are elucidated throughout each chapter of the book, which, taken altogther, provide a holistic framework for understanding the anti-aging effects of drinking lightwater with traces of gold and silver nanoparticles, and exposing the human body to electrical current. The most intense examples are given by contactees who have been enveloped in HHO plasma and experienced the resulting transcendent consciousness.

New method for making large quantities of deuterium-depleted drinking water

Scientists in China are reporting development of a less expensive, more eco-friendly method for making deuterium-depleted drinking water, citing studies suggesting that it may be a more healthful form of water. Their report appears in ACS' bi-weekly journal Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research.

Changgong Meng and Feng Huang note that natural water, widely known as H2O, actually is a mixture of H2O and tiny amounts of D2O -- about 150 parts per million (ppm), or a few drops of D2O in every quart of water. Deuterium-depleted water usually contains about 125 ppm. The "D" is deuterium, an isotope or variant form of hydrogen often termed "heavy hydrogen." They cite accumulating evidence that water with high levels of deuterium may have adverse health effects on animals and plants, while deuterium-depleted water may be useful in treatment of certain diseases. Existing ways of removing deuterium from water tend to be expensive, inefficient, or environmentally harmful.

They describe a new method that helps overcome these problems, and could be the basis for the first industrial-scale production of deuterium-depleted water. It involves a platinum catalyst that quickly and efficiently removes deuterium from water using a combination of cold and hot temperatures. In laboratory-scale tests, the new technique reduced the amount of deuterium in water from about 145 parts per million to 125 parts per million. The resulting water is suitable for drinking, the scientists say, and could be produced in large quantities at economical cost.

Method for the Production of Deuterium-Depleted Potable Water
Feng Huang, Changgong Meng
A study of the utilization of dual-temperature catalytic exchange between water and hydrogen for the production of deuterium-depleted water is presented. We use a novel catalyst with excellent physical properties for the hot tower of the isotopic exchange. The deuterium-depleted water obtained from the experiment is in agreement with the theoretical consideration on deuterium content at 80 °C when λ is about 1.5. The deuterium-depleted water with 126.3 ppm D2O is gained when λ is about 2 under 80 °C. This kind of water can be used as ordinary drinking water and in cosmetic and hygiene products.

A retrospective evaluation of the effects of deuterium depleted water consumption on 4 patients with brain metastases from lung cancer.
Krempels K, et al.
Because of the number of sufferers and high mortality rate, the standard care and new therapeutic options in the treatment of brain metastasis from lung cancer are the subject of intense research. A new concept based on the different chemical and physical behavior of protium and deuterium affecting cell signaling and tumor growth has been introduced in the treatment of cancer patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of deuterium depleted water (DDW) consumption in addition to conventional forms of therapy on the survival of lung cancer patients with brain metastasis.

A series of 4 case histories was retrospectively evaluated. The patients were diagnosed with brain metastasis deriving from a primary lung tumor and started consuming DDW at the time of or after the diagnosis of the brain metastasis, which was inoperable or the surgical intervention did not result in complete regression. The primary objective was survival.

The daily water intake of the patients was replaced with DDW, which complemented the conventional forms of treatment. Patients were consuming DDW for at least 3 months. The treatment was continued with DDW of 10 to 15 to 20 ppm lower deuterium (D) content every 1 to 2 months and thus a gradual decrease was maintained in the D-concentration in the patient's body.

DDW consumption integrated into conventional treatments resulted in a survival time of 26.6, 54.6, 21.9, and 33.4 months in the 4 patients, respectively. The brain metastasis of 2 patients showed complete response (CR), whereas partial response (PR) was detected in 1 patient, and the tumor growth was halted (no change or NC) in 1 case. The primary tumor of 2 patients indicated CR, and the lung tumor in 2 patients showed PR.

DDW was administered as an oral anticancer agent in addition to conventional therapy, and noticeably prolonged the survival time of all 4 lung cancer patients with brain metastasis. We suggest that DDW treatment, when integrated into other forms of cancer treatment, might provide a new therapeutic option.
