There ought to be a law

Promoting the use of a dangerous chemical like oxygen dihydride? Somebody should report that company to the EPA.

Who are you going to believe, me or those crooked X-rays?

Oh dude it gets better. Fenestra Research, the fake lab the Stirwands people quote as having done legitimate double-blind peer-reviewed studies of their product, apparently consists of a single person, one "Dr." (not really a doctor) Melonie Montgomery. She seems to have started out as a peddler of new age bullshit for horses. Do you understand what this means? She is literally Groucho's character, Hugo Z. Hackenbush, from A Night At The Opera.

Dr Montgomery is an interesting case - she has so far failed to win her PhD from a diploma mill. I mean, what are the odds? She's still ABD from the diploma mill. Only has the masters, but is working on it.

What's more, as eyeteeth discovered, she has had some old fashioned legal problems.

Sickness can not survive in an alkaline environment!

Our realtor, who is a relation of my husband's, is a new-age health devotee who is currently nuts for Kangen water. All our hours in her car while house-hunting were accompanied by her unceasing prattle regarding how all our and anyone else's health concerns would be ended if only we drank nothing but alkaline water. She will never die because she has purged the demon acidity from her system!

Since the move, SiL is now living where guests can stand to enter, and so she brings SiL Kangen water several times a week and is working hard to convert SiL and us to her water cult. We try to be polite while making it clear: we are not spending thousands of dollars on a water filtration system that is the equivalent of stirring a teaspoon of baking soda into a jug of tap water!
