There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

Photonicwater.com makes devices containing glass balls which supposedly "revitalise" water, making it better for plants, animals, and industrial processes. Their spiel is sprinkled with a random mixture of actual, but irrelevant, scientific terms such as "biophotons", (which are actually the light faintly emitted from living-things such as animals and plants). They allege that water has "memory", à la homoeopathy. They claim muscle tissue is "99% water". In reality, the content of your bladder isn't even that watery.
Photonic-water devices are promoted by the advocate of all things alternative, Adam Abraham. He is an anti-vaccinationist, who, when he's not urging people to drink "MMS" bleach, suggests that they drink urine.
