    Molecular hydrogen (H2) is a gas with very unique and selective antioxidant effects that specifically target the most harmful free radicals. The alkaline water fad was an unfortunate outgrowth of the successful use coupled with a misunderstanding or ignorance of the therapeutic property of the water (e.g., benefits falsely attributed to alkaline pH and not the actual H2 gas).

  • No evidence for DNA damage in rodents exposed to 2G and 3G cellphone radiation
  • Clear evidence of brain tumors in all rodents exposed to 2G and 3G cellphone radiation
  • Clear evidence for heart tumors in male rats exposed to 2G and 3G cellphone radiation

    Research by the National Toxicology Program found "clear evidence" for heart tumors in male rats. These tumors started developing around week 70, and are similar to human acoustic neuromas that previous studies have linked to cellphone use. Learn more.
