Steve asks: I was thinking of putting unfiltered tap water into a jar and testing it but I would like to know if the IMAET software can detect what impurities are in the sample water.
Answer (Dr. Straile): The imaet is not a chemical analysis or spectrometry device. It will not give you good information by scanning a jar full of something. However, if you drink that jar of something and the body is processing whatever is in that jar, the metabolic activities processing the ingredients can be picked up by imaet. THAT is the strength of the imaet.
i.e. if there is a certain pollution in the air, nobody knows about it (unless respiratory issues or smell etc). But, the body's detoxification metabolism dealing with the pollution will reveal the culprit, and the particular systems and genes involved. THAT is the strength of the imaet.
