Fire from Salt Water


The late John Kanzius found a way to burn salt water with the same radio wave machine he is using to kill cancer cells.

Kanzius was testing his external radio-wave generator to see if it could desalinate salt water, and the water ignited. A university chemist determined that the process is generating hydrogen, which can be burned as fuel.

While the phenomenon is interesting, it is not yet practical for energy generation as long as more energy is consumed by the radio frequency device than is produced for burning. Efficiency-wise, they started at around 76 percent of Faraday's theoretical limit. (Other Hydrogen-from-Water methods, such as the one being pursued by Bob Boyce, are approaching 7x Faraday). They subsequently quietly reported that they surpassed 100% efficiency, which would mean that the system is somehow harnessing environmental energy such as from the zero point or some other yet-to-be discovered phenomenon.

Another problem to be overcome from burning salt water is the liberation of toxic chlorine (from the Cl of NaCl/salt).

Kanzius said if someone wants to buy up the rights to the technology, that would be fine. He would use the funds to finance his quest to cure cancer.

He passed away Feb. 19, 2009.

Inventor John Kanzius will share the latest updates on his groundbreaking cancer research project to area business and community leaders, during the Manufacturers' Association's monthly Eggs 'n' Issues briefing, Tuesday, July 31, at the Manufacturers' Association of Northwest Pennsylvania (http://www.manp.org/) Conference Center, 2171 West 38th Street at 8 am.

To register for this briefing, contact Tracy Shepard at 814/833-3200, 800/815-2660 or click here to register on the Association's web site. Cost is $30 for members, $60 for non-members.

[...] The Kanzius Non-invasive Radio Wave Treatment is a potential cancer therapy that uses high-energy radio waves to destroy cancer cells that have been "tagged" with nano particles. Nano particles attached to cancer cells are heated by radio waves to a temperature, which destroys the cancer cells. The technique is non-invasive, and can be provided without the need for auxiliary chemotherapy or radiation. Intensive and promising technological research about the Kanzius Radio wave Treatment is currently under way at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the Mayo Clinic and other American medical centers.

John Kanzius write:

"Since it appears we now have now achieved more than unity, I am going to do an embargo on releasing all further information.

"Actually there are smart individuals who have posted on different web sited and actually have a pretty good idea of what is happening."

June 01, 2007

"I am in the process of redesigning the electronics for the saltwater as to see what efficiency we can achieve.

"Why does everyone think this is a form of electrolysis?

"Some scientists who have made comments on certain web sites actually understand the mechanism of action.

"Regarding moving this forward, I want to see what are the best results we can achieve with joules in vs joules out. A chemist in Houston whom I know is going to be doing a couple of things for me this weekend." -- John Kanzius (June 01, 2007)

How it Works

Kanzius is not publicly disclosing the mechanism of action at this time.

He says that the process would not be considered a form of electrolysis.

"It has nothing in common with the Rife concept except the word radio waves....He was supposedly looking for resonant frequencies of the cells themselves. This is nanoparticle technology. The nanoparticles are relatively new in the science and medical world. Gold nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes are the molecules that enter the cancer cells to be thermally destroyed by the non-invasive radio waves..The frequencies themselves are not even close..." (May 27, 2007)

"It does take much sodium to discolor the flame. We have measured the before and after burns and very little sodium has been expended." (May 29, 2007)

"What burns at a temperature of over 1700 C? [Knowing the answer to that question] might take some of the guess work out of the equation." (May 29, 2007)

"PLASMA does and the flame seem to have an electrical quality." -- Jerome E. Goodwin Sr. (May 29, 2007)


Patents

Kanzius has filed patents on the saltwater utilization as a possible alternative fuel.

Sanibel Island [Florida] resident John Kanzius is a former broadcast executive from Pennsylvania who wondered if his background in physics and radio could come in handy in treating the disease from which he suffers: cancer. A person witnessing the device asked him if it might desalinate water. When he ran an experiment using a test tube of salt water, the water began to burn.

John Kanzius' primary interest is in using this radio frequency nanotechnology to cure cancer. This Hydrogen-from-Salt Water discovery is but an interesting if not annoying detour for him.

He invites interested parties to visit their lab to see a demonstration of the technology.

Danger? Wouldn't it Act on Salt Water in Living Tissues?

On June 24, 2008, Michael Rosbrough wrote:

I was wondering about the potential downside of Mr. Kanzius' de-salinasation(salt water to fire) discovery. If a RF signal, 13.56 MHz, is directed toward a container of salt water which causes the positive electrons in sodium to seperate the hydrogen from the oxygen molecules and burn the hydrogen, why can't we speculate that other objects such as a large body of salt water, the human body or any potential environment where salt and water exist, would react in a similiar yet undesirable manner.

  • Bio-Energetics > Radio Frequency Ablasion - Patented technology by Joel Fallik pre-dates John Kanzius' work, and has a wide range of non-invasive, disease-eliminating applications through the targeting of heat to precise points through the interference patterns of two microwave generators. It is being spurned in the market because it would take the huge profits out of disease.
