Fill Yer Boots Mohammad

Excerpt from Mick Hartley:

""...............But, as Mohammad Sa'idi, international affairs deputy of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization, explains on Iranian TV, there's no cause for alarm here. The heavy water's for drinking:

Interviewer: "You just said that in some cases, heavy water can even be used for drinking."

Mohammad Sa'idi: "Yes."

Interviewer: "Could you elaborate on this?"

Mohammad Sa'idi: "One of the products of heavy water is depleted deuterium. As you know, in an environment with depleted deuterium, the reception of cancer cells and of the AIDS viruses is disrupted. Since this reception is disrupted, the cells are gradually expelled from the body. Obviously, one glass of depleted deuterium will not expel or cure the cancer or eliminate the AIDS. We are talking about a certain period of time. In many countries that deal with these diseases, patients use this kind of water instead of regular water, and consume it daily in order to heal their diseases.

"In other words, the issue of heavy water has to do with matters of life and death, in many cases. One of the reasons that led us to produce heavy water was to use it for agricultural... medical purposes, and especially for industrial purposes in our country." [...]

"There is no connection whatsoever between heavy water and plutonium.""

I think the only reason heavy water is used is to slow down neutrons from a nuclear reaction to an appropriate speed to collide with another uranium or plutonium atom at the right speed to continue the chain reaction.

who do these guys think they are fooling?

"Heavy Water" is deuterium oxide said to be 'heavy' because of the extra neutrons and protons. 2H2O

The effect of 2H2O is that it captures or slows down charged particles that pass through it. It is used as a damper or brake on ionizing radiation produced by nuclear reactors.

I've never heard of heavy water being used for any purpose other than nuclear reactors and to create tritium which is used for... (you guessed it)... thermonuclear bombs!

Medical use? Hilarious!! I just did a little googling and I found out that heavy water causes reaction somewhat like chemotherapy but without the benefits. In other words, it's poisonous in higher dosages.

What a crock of shiite!!

As the previous commentors have mentioned . . . this is bogus.

All water has some amounts of heavy water, so the supposed positive effects Sa'idi claims would have eliminated cancer eons ago just by normally drinking.

Cheers,
