The book - "Water of Life" | Anti-cancer & anti-diabetic Effect

Water of Life, a book by Dr Won H. KimThe Book "Water of Life" by Dr Won H. Kim

Author, Won H. Kim, is currently a professor at Yonsei University Wonju Medical School in the Biochemistry Department. He became interested in water because of his daughter, and dedicated his life to research. That has led to him being acknowledged as one of the foremost authorities on water. He graduated from Seoul National University's Chemistry Department, and received his doctorate in biochemistry at England's Oxford University. He has also held tenure at United States Carnegie Mellon University as a research professor. His chief subject of research in England and United States was protein structure. After returning to Korea, Dr Kim focused much attention to Alternative Medicine and the world of super-scientific subtle energy, in addition to his research on protein and genes.

In his book, Dr Kim discusses how he discovered the healing properties of alkaline reduced water, that his research and experiments show promising anti-cancer and anti-diabetic effects, and how he helped his daughter overcome her hormonal health problem. This book is filled with rich information and personal experiences that Dr Kim shares selflessly.


Anti-cancer and Anti-diabetic Effects of Alkaline Reduced Water in Animal Model

This study was done by the inventor of BIO-Q, Dr. H. Kim, Department of Biochemistry, Wonju College of Medicine, Yonsei University, Wonju 220-701, Kangwondo, Korea. He reported anti-cancer and anti-diabetic effects with the use of Alkaline Reduced Water (ARW) produced using BIO-Q. Various tests were carried out on lab mice with the following summary findings and observations:

Effect of ARW on blood parameters

Four-week old mice were supplied with a standard diet and ARW, and given laboratory tap water or ARW for 32 weeks.

The glucose, total cholesterol and triglyceride levels were significantly lower in the ARW fed group.

Effect of ARW on tumor growth
Mice were supplied with standard diet and ARW. After the 10th day of subcutaneous injection of B16 melanoma cells into the mice, tumor masses were palpable and thereafter serially measured. Tumor growth was significantly reduced in the ARW fed group, showing 54% inhibition.

Effect of ARW on survival time
Survival rate was monitored after intraperitoneal injection of B16 melanoma cells were administered to the mice. ARW lengthened mean survival time from 36 days for the control group to 44 days for the ARW fed group.

Evaluation of anti-metastatic activity of ARW on lung metastasis of B16
Fifteen days after intravenous injections of B16 melanoma cells to the mice, they were sacrificed. The metastatic lesions in their lung tissues were compared. The ARW fed group had fewer metastatic lesions, indicating 44% inhibition against metastasis of melanoma cell.

Evaluation of anti-oxidant effect of ARW
As the melanoma cell is known to exhibit increased oxidative stress that could support the progression of metastasis, concentration of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) was also measured for each organ of the same B16 melanoma injected mice. the amount of ROS for lung, liver and kidney were very low relatively in the ARW fed mice. However, the spleen, which is a major organ for immunity, shows very high ROS in the ARW fed group. This might suggest the immune boosting effect of ARW.

Evaluation of immuno-modulating effect of ARW
ARW intake invoked systemic cytokines, such as, Th1 (IFN-gamma, IL-12), cytokines for cellular immunity and Th2 (IL-4, IL-5), cytokines for humoral immunity. This suggests that ARW stimulates both cellular and humoral immunity. Th1 and Th2 reached maximal peak after 2 weeks of ARW feeding and returned back to the baseline. Cytokine levels of tap water fed control remained at the baseline.


Recently, electrolyzed-reduced water with a high pH and significant negative redox potential was shown to have SOD-like activity and catalase-like activity, and thus, scavenge ROS and protect DNA from damage by oxygen radicals in vitro. If ARW is actually acting as antioxidants and protects DNA from damage, it might be hypothesized that ARW intake would be possible to show anti-cancer effect.

ARW intake slowed down tumor growth, and inhibited the intravenous metastasis, leading to prolonged survival span in B16 melanoma injected mice. The B16 melanoma cell is one of the most frequent tumors in humans and is characterized by its high capacity for invasion and metastasis. They escape from immune surveillance and spread more rapidly than any other tumors using several mechanisms including MHC down-regulation, increasing reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels, and thus, expedite the progression of metastasis.

Our study demonstrated that ARW not only acts as an anti-oxidant but also acts as a strong immunomoduator, both of which could be responsible for the anti-cancer effect. Thus, ARW is expected to be effective for the various diseases resulting from low immunity and/or high reactive oxygen species as well as for prevention of cancer.

In actuality, ARW demonstrates anti-diabetic effects as well as anti-cancer effects. ARW lowered blood glucose, triglyceride, and total cholesterol levels in OLTF rats which had diabetes-inducing hereditary defects as they grew. Recently, hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia are known to be related to ROS levels in blood vessels, tissues, and cells. Thus, it has been recognized that the scavenging of ROS and the control of lipid metabolism are both quite relevant to the control of diabetes. The anti-diabetic effects of ARW in the present paper also confirmed the relation.

There is no medicine which is effective both for cancer and diabetes, suggesting their mechanism is completely different from that of current medicine which treats only specific disease condition. Thus, ARW seems to work rather as water panacea.

ARW not only has high pH and low ORP, but also contains some magnesium ions. Recently, magnesium was shown to be effective for the prevention of various diseases including cancer and diabetes. We cannot exclude the possibility that the magnesium in ARW might have contributed to the anti-cancer and anti-diabetic effect.

The interesting fact is ARW-drinking rats had a much higher intake of water than rats drinking regular water. It cannot be verified whether the alkaline water was delicious to the rats or if the animals sensitively and instinctively felt it was good for their health.

Water reaches every tissue of human body within 30 minutes after drinking. It even flows through blood brain barrier with no obstacle, and has almost no side effect. Taking ARW could be an ideal way to maintain health.
