Dr Jhon is the worlds leading authority on water science. His last book “The Water Puzzle and the Hexagonal Key”, summarizes over 40 years of scientific research, documenting the structural qualities of water.
In this book, now translated in five languages, the author presents scientific evidence showing that the hexagonal structure of water, is preferred by all biological organisms - that it is involved in the healthy function of the DNA, enzyme reactions and numerous metabolic functions.
In 1986 Dr Jhon officially presented his theory "Molecolar Water Environment".
He found that the reinstatement of hexagonal water in our body can improve vitality, retard aging and prevent disease. The process of aging is also a function of a body's loss of hexagonal water from it's cells.
280 Publications included the Book, "Significant Liquid Structures", John Wiley and Sons Inc. N.Y. (1969).
