The humidity in the air – the gasified water vapor droplets that enable us to breathe and prevent us from drying out and shriveling up – is just as vulnerable to water pollution as are the lakes, rivers and aquifers on the ground. The health consequences of polluted humidity are just as bad, if not worse than other types of water pollution. Those were the conclusions of water researcher Winston Kao in an interview on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show.
The globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show, with host Sharon Kleyne, is heard on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. Kleyne is also Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, a water and health research and product development center. Natures Tears® EyeMist®, a 100% pure water mist, is the Research Center’s global signature product for dry eyes.
Winston Kao is an entrepreneur, inventor, independent researcher, and owner of Go Beyond Orqanic (http://www.gobeyondorganic.com/). The company makes Natural Plus Plus nutritional supplements. Kao's research interests include water, humidity, soils, pollution, nutrient dense foods, fluoridation and the alarming global decline in soil productivity.
Kao is a frequent guest on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water®. He offers a unique perspective on water issues, with much new information.
Sharon Kleyne asked Kao about the influence of the air's humidity on health. Kleyne and Kao are both deeply concerned about the global water supply, including atmospheric humidity. Kao observed that without the air’s humidity, our lungs could not absorb oxygen and we would quickly lose the moisture in our skin and eyes to evaporation.
According to Kao, there are 3,600 cubic miles of water in the air we breathe in the form of airborne water vapor particles that range in size from a single molecule to small water droplets in more humid air. The primary source of airborne humidity is the evaporation is water from the ground – particularly the oceans but also lakes, rivers, living organisms and soil. Atmospheric humidity, according to Kao, is just as susceptible to pollution as the water in soil, rivers and lakes.
The effects of "polluted humidity," Kleyne and Kao agree, have not been adequately studied.
Sharon Kleyne pointed out that according to L. DeWayne Cecil, PHD, a climatologist she has interviewed several times, airborne pollution particles, particularly carbon soot and fly ash, tend to attract and accumulate water. As a result, rising water vapor molecules form small water droplets around the particles and fall back to the ground before ever reaching the upper atmosphere and forming clouds, precipitation and weather systems. In areas of extremely high air pollution, rainfall and upper atmospheric moisture tends to be below normal.
Kleyne also inquired about electronic water pollution - the influence of radio signals on humidity and on the water in our bodies. Kao explained that water is a powerful electrical conductor and that the human body, which is 60 to 70 percent water, certainly reacts to radiation, radio waves, and electro-magnetic fields that travel through the air. This effect would be relatively easy to measure. Kao noted that water on Earth is becoming more and more positively charged and that the healthiest water is negatively charged. 4G cell phones, he believes, put out a strongly negative charge that could be picked up by humidity, rainwater and water in the body. This would tend to improve rather than pollute the water.
Regarding daily water intake, Kleyne and Kao both recommend drinking 8 to 10 glasses a day in addition to all other fluid intake. Both agreed that distilled water, with dissolved solutes removed, is of little benefit. The mineral solute content of drinking should be free of lead, heavy metals and chemical residue.
