Oxidation Reduction Potential of Ozonated Water

by Petr
(San Francisco, CA)

I was measuring the other day at my friend's house the ORP value of Ozonated water. The value was +605mV. It is known from the literature that water that has ORP around +600 mV kills bacteria.

We know that ozone is very reactive and it would make sense not to introduce into the human body more reactive molecules.

The ozonated water could be beneficial for killing bacteria good/bad and help people to cure cancer whatever mechanism is doing the job!

The pH of the ozonated water that my friend prepared from the distilled water was also low (pH -4.5).

Knowing that oxidative stress is causing all kind of problems, I wouldn't go with this water on a regular basis to properly hydrate the body and instead go with ionized alkaline water. This water has a negative ORP value up to -650 mV and is very effective to scavenge free radicals.

Nancy's response: Thank you for sharing this comment, Petr! I think I have come to the same conclusion about ozonated drinking water as you have.

I believe ozonated water can be beneficial to rid the body of unhealthy bacterium, viruses and parasites that are associated with various health conditions, including cancer.

However, I also think that because of the high positive oxidation reduction potential of ozonated water, it is not wise to drink it on a long-term, daily basis.

I agree with your recommendation about the best drinking water, which I have written several articles about on my site.

The second best choice in drinking water, in my opinion, is high-quality filtered water that contains natural-occurring alkaline minerals.

Oxidation Reduction
by: Jessica Summers

In a clean water system, using ORP to measure the dissolved ozone status works well. In our experience, however, even the strong oxidizing power of ozone in moderate turbidity (cloudiness) systems can result in ORP values far below expected and even negative (reducing) values. In general, monitoring ozone with ORP at the generator source works well but measuring dirty water becomes unreliable.

Alkaline Environment Could Keep the Cancer Away
by: Petr

It is known that an ideal pH for a human body is slightly alkaline -- pH 7.36. The blood pH is controlled exactly in that range by a bicarbonate buffer.

In other parts of body, where the fluid exchange and therefore proper hydration, the pH could deviate from the above value and go locally to acidic. This is mainly due to an accumulating acidic waste for many years, so the metabolism within that locality changes to anaerobic (oxygen deprived), ideal for cancerous cell.

On the other hand if there is a slightly alkaline environment, it secures the aerobic (oxygen rich)state where cancerous cells can't grow.

Dr. Otto Warburg got a Nobel price in medicine back in 1931 for his discovery how does the pH environment effect the growth of cancerous cell.
I would certainly pay attention to his great, unfortunately not well publicized work.
