In this series of episodes, I join Dr. Gerald Pollack in his bioengineering laboratory at the University of Washington in Seattle where we dig into his book, “The Fourth Phase of Water”. We uncover mysteries about the properties of water that have long been buried and misunderstood in the scientific community. Basic observations that we experience as children are finally elucidated by Dr. Pollack’s explanation of this 4th phase that exists between solid ice and liquid water.

Strange properties like the strength of sand castles, compacting a snow ball, how clouds form, and why cells don’t leak if sliced in half…can all be explained by this fourth phase, termed the Exclusion Zone or EZ.

In this final of three segments, we explore just a few examples within our own biology of precisely how EZ water may be integrating to make life operate more efficiently and effectively within us. We discuss blood flow and lymph flow, detoxification, infrared saunas, and how even UV light may be structuring the water within us!

Water Journal

Professor Gerald Pollack is Founding Editor-in-Chief of the scientific journal, WATER and is recognized as an international leader in science and engineering.

The University of Washington Faculty chose Pollack, in 2008, to receive their highest annual distinction: the Faculty Lecturer Award. He was the 2012 recipient of the coveted Prigogine Medal for thermodynamics of dissipative systems. He has received an honorary doctorate from Ural State University in Ekaterinburg, Russia, and was more recently named an Honorary Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Foreign Member of the Srpska Academy. Pollack is a Founding Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and a Fellow of both the American Heart Association and the Biomedical Engineering Society. He recently received an NIH Director’s Transformative R01 Award for his work on water, and maintains an active laboratory in Seattle.

Pollack’s interests have ranged broadly, from biological motion and cell biology to the interaction of biological surfaces with aqueous solutions. His 1990 book, Muscles and Molecules: Uncovering the Principles of Biological Motion, won an “Excellence Award” from the Society for Technical Communication; two subsequent books: Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life, and The Fourth Phase of Water, both won that Society’s “Distinguished Award.”

Pollack is recognized worldwide as a dynamic speaker and a scientist willing to challenge any long-held dogma that does not fit the facts.
