SAN MIGUEL SIMBRON, José Luis. Reflections on water memory and infrared spectra in the health area: a purpose of determining body composition with stable isotopes. Cuad. - Hosp. Clín. [online]. 2015, vol.56, n.2, pp.98-108. ISSN 1562-6776.

This workpresents concepts about determining body composition byusing the stable isotope technique, as deuterium, using saliva samples in school children at high altitude. These samples are achieved by the enrichment of deuterium oxide in the whole body of the school children and then are analyzed with Fourier transform infrared spectrometer. Currently there is an emphasis on a new property of the bacterial DNA sequences that induce the production of electromagnetic waves, that highlights the "water memory" to be able to maintain the DNA fragments, signal generators that are defined as "Biomarkers", which allow the detection of chronicle bacterial infections in the body. A reflection is that saliva samples contaminated with microorganisms such as bacterias interfere with the measurement of the deuterium enrichment identified by FTIR equipment. The learnt lesson is about oral hygiene, which minimizes contamination with microorganisms from the saliva samples to determine the enrichment achieved with deuterium, and not to make the mistake of measuring actual results would total body water of the subjects studied.

Palabras clave : Stable isotopes; deuterium; infrared spectroscopy; bacterial DNA; water memory; chronic bacterial infection.
