Marlie Love’s Positive and Negative News Water Experiment

I’m back! This blog post will provide some details of my second water experiment, the effects of positive and negative news. With the way the world is now, I wanted to see what positive and negative news would do to water. I am one that doesn’t necessarily watch the news because I feel that it can be overly negative, and I did the big cable “chop” a little bit ago, ha (aka got rid of cable, just Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO GO.... am I even saving money?). With this water challenge, I was sure that I would show everyone that the negative news water would literally turn dirty and I would see little devils swimming around in it, ha!! That didn’t happen though. After day two, I realized that it’s really hard to distinguish what is positive news and what is negative news. You can’t go off just the “headline”… you have to really listen or read to each story and distinguish what you feel is positive or negative. IT’S SO CONFUSING! For example, I went on ABC News’ website. Every story was about Donald Trump (some of it completely unnecessary). If you’re a Donald Trump supporter, all of that news would have been negative to you. If you didn’t like Donald Trump, you would think that news is positive. Is this right? Does anyone else think the news is confusing….. (ps: who is the author of confusion?).

Below are the picture results from my seven day experiment.

Final Results!

The final results was - I found some changes in the glasses. As usual the positive water did stay very clear and the negative water had a white film at the bottom of it. Overall, what I gathered from doing this experiment is, watch what you watch and listen to. I don’t want to sound like a paranoid person, but you may not realize you’re listening to negative news. It could be disguised as something positive, but it really isn't. 

I feel like the news media has a some responsibility to provide some hope in a time of hopelessness. Although there is sadness, greed, anger, mistrust in the land; as the voice of a nation, they should still find ways to show that there is good out there. If they aren’t, then I feel like something need to change!

I am in the process of doing another water experiment – the effects of water with positive and negative music. I’ll only be doing this experiment for five days instead of seven. I will post those results in a blog post soon.
