At a Summit press conference today, the Academy for Future Science announced two new, revolutionary technologies, one on water purification and waste treatment, and one on needleless insulin and HIV therapy. The Academy, with offices in Los Gatos, California and Pretoria is a non-profit corporation that examines new scientific ideas for future use in, among other areas, medicine, renewable energy and methods to improve the global environment.

Introducing the technology on water purification and waste treatment, developed by Cellinite Technologies, Inc., Dr. J.J. Hurtak of the Academy said there was a need to recycle the “life blood” of the planet, which became more and more scarce. Once used for drinking, fresh water needed to be used over and over again. Cellinite Technologies had introduced tablets that, once introduced in water, time-released oxygen and microorganisms.
