The electrolysis is a base of many industrial processes like galvanotechnics and galvanoplastics. It is also used for hydrogen, and oxygen production. Different products such as H2, NaOH, HCl, heavy water (D2O) and others could be obtained as well depending on the manufacturing conditions. They can influence significantly the vital processes in living organisms either activating or diminishing their rate [1,2]. The catholyte and anolyte waters are produced in the cathode and anode parts of the electrolysis cell. The catholyte is alkaline and has a negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP). The anolyte is acidic and of positive ORP. The value for ORP is in milivolts (mV). It was demonstrated that the catholyte stimulated the metabolitic processes and immune system, and had an anti-oxidant action. Recent investigation of catholyte water on Graffi tumor in hamsters has demonstrated its antitumor effect . The anolyte however has demonstrated strong biocidal and antiinflamatory action [4,5] Cha, Chun-Nam et al. . In spite of many investigations carried out all over the world no satisfactory explanation of these properties has been suggested until now. In the report a model of the number of water molecules related to the energy of hydrogen bonds is described.
