About Gerald H. Pollack
Professor Gerald Pollack is Founding Editor-in-Chief of the scientific journal, WATER and is recognized as an international leader in science and engineering.
The University of Washington Faculty chose Pollack, in 2008, to receive their highest annual distinction: the Faculty Lecturer Award. He was the 2012 recipient of the coveted Prigogine Medal for thermodynamics of dissipative systems. He has received an honorary doctorate from Ural State University in Ekaterinburg, Russia, and was more recently named an Honorary Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Foreign Member of the Srpska Academy. Pollack is a Founding Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and a Fellow of both the American Heart Association and the Biomedical Engineering Society. He recently received an NIH Director's Transformative R01 Award for his work on water, and maintains an active laboratory in Seattle.
Pollack's interests have ranged broadly, from biological motion and cell biology to the interaction of biological surfaces with aqueous solutions. His 1990 book, Muscles and Molecules: Uncovering the Principles of Biological Motion, won an "Excellence Award" from the Society for Technical Communication; two subsequent books: Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life, and The Fourth Phase of Water, both won that Society's "Distinguished Award."
Pollack is recognized worldwide as a dynamic speaker and a scientist willing to challenge any long-held dogma that does not fit the facts

Titles By Gerald H. Pollack
For instance, have you ever wondered…
How do clouds made up of dense water droplets manage to float in the sky?
Why don’t your joints squeak as they rub together?
Why do you sink in dry sand, but not in wet sand?
How does capillary action manage to raise water up a 100 foot tree?
Why does warm water freeze quicker than cool water?
Pollack uses a recent and fundamental scientific finding— EZ water—to help explain these and many other head-scratchers.
When touching most surfaces, water transforms itself into so-called EZ (Exclusion Zone) water, also known as structured water or fourth phase water. EZ water, whose formula is H3O2, differs dramatically from H2O. And, there is a lot of it, everywhere.
This award winning book provides ample evidence for the existence of EZ water. Pollack writes in a clear, eloquent style. Whimsical illustrations and simple diagrams help get his points across in a reader-friendly manner perfectly suitable for non-experts.
Praise for The Fourth Phase of Water:
“The most informative, eye-opening, mind-blowing book that I ever recall reading.”
-Henry Bauer, Dean Emeritus, Arts and Sciences, Virginia Tech
"The most significant scientific discovery of this century. What strikes me above all is the elegant simplicity of [Pollack’s] experimental approach."
-Mae‐Wan Ho, Director, Institute of Science and Society, London.
"Dr. Pollack is one of the pioneers in this field, and his discoveries can be expected to have important implications."
-Brian Josephson, Nobel Laureate, Cambridge University.
This book deals with the role of water in cell function. Long recognized to be central to cell function, water’s role has not received the attention lately that it deserves. This book brings the role of water front and central. It presents the most recent work of the leading authorities on the subject, culminating in a series of sometimes astonishing observations. This volume will be of interest to a broad audience.
