Marvel of the Month

Yaakov Lubin

Did you drink a glass of water today, wash your hands or go swimming in a pool? You may not have realized it, but you were coming in direct contact with one of the most marvelous molecules in the universe! In fact, it’s the unique properties of water that enable all life on our planet to exist.

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

The secret to water’s success lies in its exquisite design.  Water molecules are made in such a way that they stick to each other along with just about everything they come into contact with. Although short-lived, the bonds water molecules make can do some amazing things. When something like salt falls into water, the water molecules grab onto and pull away the individual atoms that it is made up of. In a short amount of time, water can dissolve many of the substances needed for life.  If not for water, the nutrients you need to stay healthy would be too big for the microscopic cells of your body to use.  Water helps break them down, making them useful and easily transportable to all parts of your body.
