I have no trust in paramagnetism; however, if you want some extremely paramagnetic material, buy some Garden-Ville Volcanite. There is a meter that measures paramagnetism. I got to have some Volcanite tested and it came back at 4,000 paramagnetism units. Anything more than 700 is considered paramagnetic. Still I think it's hokum.

Vinegar is a carbohydrate food for microbes. You'll have to add a lot to hurt them. If you are making tea, not many foodstuffs go in heavier than one ounce per gallon of tea.

Malcolm Beck has a machine. It's as big as a suitcase and all it does is test paramagnetism. He used to have free organic meetings once a month. One of those meetings he announced ahead of time that he would be bringing this paramagnetism meter with him. He suggested we bring samples of whatever we wanted to test. I took in sand (zero reading) and Volcanite.
