Have you heard of these devices that transform the shape of water molecules?
Supposedly if you change the shape, it hydrates you better, slows down aging, and can cure certain diseases.

I have indeed heard of devices -- such as the Vitalizer Plus -- that proclaim to alter the structure of a water molecule into a hexagonal shape.
Some companies go as far as claiming that hexagonal water is "living water" with "beneficial enzymes" that are not found in tap or bottled water.
I have also heard the advertised benefits -- a healthier immune system, less inflammation, better gastrointestinal health, etc, etc.
The only positive thing I can muster to say about this is that whoever came up with this concept sure has an overly vidid imagination.
I'll spare everyone a tedious chemistry lesson and just say that the molecular structure of water is permanently fixed, and absolutely no biochemical changes can be made (by any person or machine) to turn it into a "healthier" or "better" beverage.
It doesn't need to be! No one is getting sick as a result of drinking conventional water.
For all intents and purposes, hexagonal water should be placed in the same category as unicorns, fairies, and gnomes.
I would be very happy if all companies selling hexagonal were heavily fined by the Federal Trade Commission for false advertising.
