Ha! I remember this when it was published during the summer. It's hilarious. I thought it must have been April Fools or something. It 'makes water wetter'??!! It "charges" the water??.... WHAT??!!

Very sloppy journalism- every outlandish claim written as fact with nothing to back it up... Along with the charged, wetter water, one of the best claims is how this water can turn chickens and sheep into, and I quote, "giants"!!!

I think I'll wait til it's in a published, peer-reviewed, journal...

The more I read into it the more ridiculous it is. Tom Prenderville, hang your head in shame for writing that article in the biggest newspaper in Ireland! He should be ridiculed for it...

It says Kew is associated (nothing got to do with the technology since at least 2006) and Warrenstown Agricultural College has "extensively tested" it (closed since 2001)... Is Limerick Uni paying this professor??

It's just a terrible article written about a technology that's on a par with homeopathy. Both have approximately.....ZERO scientific evidence!!

Have a quick read of the link below...
