Specifically, they have been found to increase significantly the antibody and cell-mediated immune responses to infection and cancer. They have been found to improve gas combustion and reduce pollution emissions. They have also been found to improve significantly the efficacy of large industrial furnaces used to make ingredients for the manufacture of plastics.
Shui-Yin Lo, PhD, a visiting professor at the California Institute of Technology and an internationally respected theoretical physicist, has led a team of scientists to confirm the existence and significant of the ice crystals and their electrical fields.
The existence of these ice crystals has been verified with photographs from an electron microscope, providing two-dimension al pictures of the ice crystals, and the newly developed Atomic force microscope which provides three-dimensional photographs of the crystals. Dr. Lo calls these ice crystals, IE crystals ("I" stands for ice, and "E" for the electrical field that is emanated from them). The IE crystals look a bit like a lentil bean and have a flat disc configuration. The crystals congregate into clusters that range from 15nm to several microns in size and can even be seen with a light micrscope using high power magnification.
Dr. Lo has found that different ice crystals and their electrical fields can be created. Various salts, acids, and base substances have already been tested. He and other scientists have found significant biological and chemical effects from the various IE crystals that they have tested thus far.
At a recent international symposium on IE crystals, a diverse and highly respected body of 12 scientists confirmed and expanded upon Dr. Lo's work. Dr. Benjamin Bonavida, professor and former chair of UCLA's Department of Microbiology and Immunology, has found that one type of IE crystals induced highly significant increases in various cytokines (mediators of both the antibody and cell-mediated immune responses to infection and cancer). Specifically, Dr. Bonavida found increased production of interferon gamma, interleukins (eg. IL-6, IL-10, IL-12), and tumor necrosis factor.
Dr. Bonavida's studies have shown several interkeukins activity to increase from low background levels (when exposed to control water) to significant high levels (from 2-100 fold increase) when exposed to IE water.
Dr. Bonavida asserts, "The IE crystals we tested has created such dramatic augmentation of regulators and mediaters of host immunity that additional research is not only important, it is vital."
Selim Senkan, PhD., professor and chair of UCLA's Department of Chemical Engineering, has also discovered significant effects from IE crystals but in a completely different application. Dr. Senkan tested IE crystals as a fuel additive and found a 20-40% reduction in carbon deposits on engine piston tops.
Dr. Senkan asserts, "If additional work confirms our experiments, the implications of IE crystals for a wide variety of technological devices will be significant. Our work suggests that this IE technology will lead to greater energy efficiency and reduced pollution."
The ability of IE crystals to increase fuel efficiency, decrease exhaust smog components, and decrease carbon build-up in engines, thereby prolonging the life of an engine, has led Dr. Lo and his associates at American Technologies Group to use IE crystal technology to create "The Force (Trademark)," an airborne fuel additive that is placed in a car's air filter. According to the Financial Times (October 23, 1997), The Force "has a catalytic effect which encourages a more complete burn of the fuel."
Japan's Automotive Transportation Technical Association, an independent testing laboratory, found that "The Force" (Trademark) showed a 32.6% reduction in carbon monoxide emissions, a 14.7% reduction in hydrocarbon emissions, and a 7% reduction in nitrousoxide emisions. Tests by others on the 1997 Grand Cherokee improved mileage by over 10% and improved acceleration in a diesel autombile with almost completely elmination of black smoke exhaust.
Dr. Lo and his colleagues have shown that the effect of IE crystals on water is to reduce the surface tension, decrease the dielectric constant, increase the refractive index, and change the absorption peaks of water molecules. This effect of IE crystals in fuel addictives increases the combustion of methane gas significantly and increases the combustion of diesel, propane, and gasoline as well.
Dr. Selim Senkan has also tested IE crystals in a steam cracker, a reactor in which ethylene, the monomer used to make polyethylene plastics, is made. These furnaces can be run for only several months before they are plugged by coke formation (carbon and other inorganic deposits) on their inner surfaces. Consequently, these reactors must be shut down and cleaned out for the continuation of the operations. Dr. Senkan has discovered that IE crystals can reduce coke formation in these reactors by four-fold, thereby prolonging their operational life times. Since maintenence costs of these reactors are significant, the potential cost savings to over $10 billion per year ethylene industry is tremendous.
Simon Parsons, professor in the School of Water Sciences at Cranfield University (UK), has found that IE water has reduced fouling of heat transfer equipment by soluble salts (mostly calcium carbonate) by 70%. Recent estimations of the overall costs of fouling to industry in the UK alone are up to $2 billion.
Arkady Sinitsyn, chair of Chemical Enzymology at Moscow State University, and Mary E. Lidstrom, professor of Chemical Engineering and Microbiology at the University of Washington, have both confirmed that IE crystal may increase selected biological growth (bio-augmentation) significantly, and in some cases by more than 100%. ATG is currently performing tests with an enzyme producer to quantify the biological growth enhancement capabilities of IE crystals with fungus, enzymes, and methanogenic generating bacteria.
Dr. Sinitsyn has found that most of the tested IE crystal water demonstrated a positive "bio-effect" on most of the tested fungal and bacterial strains. This bio-effect was expressed by the increase of titters of enzymes produced by the microorganisms and by the decrease of fermentation time. Dr. Lidstrom found that IE crystals stimulated an increase of cellulase up to 60%. Cellulase is an important enzyme in the pharmaceutical and food industries for its action as a digestive aid and to improve the yield in juices. It is also used in the bleaching of paper and fermenting chemicals.
Work is progressing with cosmetics and detergent systems utilizing IE crystals with initially excellent results. The implications for the use of IE crystals to create safer, more effective medicine and more efficient and less polluting industrial machinery are significant.
Press Release! From: Dana Ullman, M.P.H. Homeopathic Educational Services 2124 Kittredge St. Berkeley, CA. 94704 (510)649-0294 (510)649-1955 (fax) Website: http://www.homeopathic.com Email: email@example.com Extremely Dilute Solutions Create Non-Melting Ice Crystals in Room Temperature Water: The Implications on Homeopathic MedicineA group of California scientists at the American Technologies Group have discovered, identified, and characterized a unique type of stable (non-melting) ice crystals that maintain an electrical field. These nanometer sized, rod-shaped water clusters are created when a substance is placed in distilled water, then vigorously shaken or stirred, and then repeatedly diluted and shaken or stirred.
Dr. Lo notes, "These water clusters or ice crystals remain stable at high temperatures, and what's intriguing is that the ice crystals still exist with varying fluctuation after repeated dilutions."
The uses of very small doses of substances to promote significant biological or chemical activity is not new to science or medicine. Hormesis is the modern scientific field that studies the effects of extremely small doses of otherwise toxic substances to stimulate growth or healing. Hundreds of studies from a variety of scientific fields have confirmed this phenomena, and the journal, Health Physics, even devoted an entire issue to this phenomena (May, 1987).
Also, one of the most popular alternative therapies in the world today is homeopathic medicine, a system of using extremely small doses of plant, mineral, chemical, or animals substances. Homeopathy has been derided by conventional physicians and scientists since its inception in the early 1800s because they incorrectly assumed that homeopathic doses of medicines were too small to have a significant biological or clinical effect. Despite this antagonism, homeopathy has persisted and even has consistently grown on every continent in the world today.
Dana Ullman, M.P.H., author of The Consumer's Guide to Homeopathy (Tarcher/Putnam, 1996) and numerous others and a leading spokesperson for the field, notes, "This new research confirms the existence of IE crystals and suggests that there may be something 'there' in homeopathic medicines after all. Many physicians and scientists have ignored homeopathy simply because they couldn't explain it. While we still don't know precisely how these IE crystals work in the body, at least we can now verify that homeopathic medicines are biologically active. This is a landmark discovery, both for homeopathy and for science."
The new research by Dr. S. Lo and the various other scientists who have confirmed it seems to verify the experiences of two centuries of homeopathic physicians. Dr. Lo notes, "There seems to be something unique in water that undergoes extreme dilution, and we now have the laboratory evidence and even the photographic evidence to verify it."
Dr. Lo acknowledges the links between his work and that of homeopathic medicine, but he also asserts, "Thus far, we have only systematically tested substances which have been diluted one to ten 13 times. Homeopathic doctors sometimes use medicines which are diluted one to ten 30, 200, 1,000, or more times, and we have not tested these extreme dilutions yet. However, I would not be surprised if IE crystals are also observed in these doses. Based on our research to date, every dilution beyond the sixth has found IE crystals in them."
When following the traditional homeopathic pharmacological method to diluting and shaking solutions, the American Technology scientists found that approximately 0.1-0.2% of the solution contained IE crystals. These scientists, however, have discovered methods to increase this to 10%.
Dr. Lo concludes, "The homeopaths were definitely onto something, but our discovery of IE crystals may help their medicines become even more powerful, and these IE crystals will also probably have significant industrial applications, energy transfer benefits, cleansing uses, and ecological protection."
Dr. Lo's work with IE crystals was initially inspired by earlier research in homeopathy, and his first experiments in using microdoses of substances were derived from the homeopathic pharmacological process of sequential diluting and shaking substances in a distilled water.
The Lancet (September 20, 1997) recently published a review of 89 double-blind controlled trials and discovered that homeopathic medicines were 2.45 more effective than a placebo. Even the studies which were deemed "high quality" studies found that homeopathic medicine had a 1.78 times greater effect than placebo. Despite these significant results, scientists and skeptics have dismissed this research primarily because they assumed that the doses used in homeopathy simply did not exist and could not possibly have any effect.
