RF Generator for treating cancer burns salt water as fuel
The opportunity for innovation to solve health and environmental problems is far greater than most people realize. The challenge is to turn new innovations into useful products which requires hard work, venture capital, and protection from business and other interests that are threatened by new technologies appearing on the market.
Salt water as fuel? Erie man hopes so

For obvious reasons, scientists long have thought that salt water couldn’t be burned.
So when an Erie man announced he’d ignited salt water with the radio-frequency generator he’d invented, some thought it a was a hoax.
John Kanzius, a Washington County native, tried to desalinate seawater with a generator he developed to treat cancer, and it caused a flash in the test tube.
Within days, he had the salt water in the test tube burning like a candle, as long as it was exposed to radio frequencies.
His discovery has spawned scientific interest in using the world’s most abundant substance as clean fuel, among other uses.
Rustum Roy, a Penn State University chemist, held a demonstration last week at the university’s Materials Research Laboratory in State College, to confirm what he’d witnessed weeks before in an Erie lab.
A key issue for burning salt waters is that the energy cost of breaking apart the water may be higher than the energy releases by putting the water back together by burning the hydrogen.
However, an even more important issue is how to move to a hydrogen economy. If this helps speed up that movement it gives initial benefit. This will stimulate other technology innovations that may move us to a “free” energy source.
For example, there are motors that will charge multiple batteries using the power from one battery by tapping energy from EM fields ignored an lost by conventional generators. As we all begin to by cars running on batteries, the incentive to put one of these “free” energy devices in every garage will increase. Grass roots efforts to implement these devices will circumvent business interests trying to suppress innovation – the real root of the energy problem and the healthcare industry problem.
