What is the truth behind biodisc?
« on: 12/03/2011 13:35:29 »
Hi,
    Can you tell me what is the truth behind the so called biodiscs and other such related products?  I have heard about such products from Amezcua ( newbielink:http://www.amezcua.com [nonactive]) for some time now.
    But, I recently saw that this was proven during a scientific test: " newbielink:http://blog.qnet.net/2011/03/amezcua-bio-disc-proven-effective-during-another-scientific-test/ [nonactive]".
    I could not find the details of the test that was done or, how exactly these things work.  All I could find from the Amezcua website was this:

"The Amezcua Bio Disc is made of technically engineered natural minerals that have been structurally bonded in glass at a molecular level using high-heat fusion methods. Through this combination of minerals and fusion techniques, a positive energy field is created, which allows the Amezcua Bio Disc to transfer its energy field to water and the human body, as has been certified through various testing and evaluation processes. It is this transfer of energy that brings out the best in your water."

    Can you please help me with this?

Regards,
Raghu S

I think it's junk. There's no science behind it (apart from the psychology of marketing trash to the gullible and possibly the placebo effect)

Looks like a variant of the "power bracelet" scam ... http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=35349.0

At least the bracelet scammers didn't claim it would extend the life of your groceries ...

If you are tired of throwing out stale fruit and vegetables, the Amezcua Pewter Bio Disc may be the economical answer. Leave the Amezcua Pewter Bio Disc in your refrigerator to improve the shelf life of your groceries, as the positive energy from the Amezcua Pewter Bio Disc transfers to your fruit and vegetables, ensuring longer-lasting freshness.

I guessed it.  But, what I am really interested in knowing is what is the scientific basis for what they claim they can do (even if it is flawed).  And what is the reason a scientific institution is interested in validating them and coming up with a positive result.

Maybe the University mentioned did not actually get involved ...
