Re:

1. - By “disappearing,” I meant “leaving” – sorry about that. - “Negative ions” are not a form of energy – they are a form of matter. Current is a form of energy, because it involves charges that are moving . - Also, a current is not “converted into” negative ions – a current is used to do work, wh...

Re:

It’s okay to make a plan without having all the resources – for example, you might find out that not all the resources are necessary. Or, as in this case, people might help you improve your experimental design. You need to be able to do this if you are planning to perform any experimental tests. Al...

Re:

So long as you know how to run a controlled experiment, propose and eliminate potential problems, etc, you can do quite a lot without a lab. Or why don't you design the methodology for a hypothetical experiment, and then post it here? Speaking of which, I notice I never replied to you in the other ...

Re: Electromagnetic fields generated by the human body

It seems... once again, I have... ended up on a forum where people report interference with electrical appliances (and I wasn't even looking for that sort of thing - this is like sixth or so time). Which is the reason why I created this thread here , as I was looking for the specific mechanism. I kn...

Re: Poisoned by antibiotics...can anyone help?

Although many a year late, I'd like to add a small logical analysis: You can't have the same problems, the two posts above you already state it's quite unlikely for the antibiotics to be responsible. 'Quite unlikely', does not equate to 'not possible'. There is still room for the probability of it o...

Re: UV Reflective Staining

Why do you think all "radioative material" fluroesces un UV? Because uranium glows under UV light . And didn't say 'all' - that's your words. I said it could be 'radioactive materials' (of which uranium is one, uranyl acetate is another - both glow under UV light). Anyway, other potential...

Re:

Thank you for your reply. To quickly address a couple of points - I'm not saying the positive surface charge of the heavy metals is causing the toxicity (I'm just inquiring into their effects as it's a long chain of reasoning that appears completely disjointed on the surface). I’m also not sure why ...

Re:

No, they will hardly efect something like "charge levels", whatever should it be. Then by what mechanism does static electricity work? Because in order for it to work, a (negative) charge has to be maintained on the body until a sufficient positive-negative ion exchange (I.E touching a gr...

Re:

The toxic concentrations of most heavy metals should be too low to really affect overall charge levels. I'm dealing with a theoretical situation presented where individuals are exposed to the working conditions of a smelting plant, that are (due to poor health and safety laws) exposed to constant v...

Re:

You'd need something that would reflect UV after being processed by the body AND something that would be deposited in with the keratin of the hair / nails. For instance, aspirin reflects UV but I doubt it would wind up in hair in any concentration. You might want to see if there are any forensics f...

Re:

The majority of all the molecules in your body are ions (all phospholipids, almost all proteins, ATP, NAD+...) Of course many of these would be affected by any toxin to some degree, but I can't think of any reason why their ionic state would be important for this. It is not as if the heavy metals c...
