seawater

Fringe nutrition
Water taken from the ocean, which is said to provide critical nutrients. Seawater is popularly believed to have health-promoting effects. It is claimed by some that a teaspoon per day prevents and reverses unnamed deficiencies that cause baldness, cancer, cardiovascular disease, mental disorders and a plethora of other conditions; such claims are not supported by peer-reviewed data.

For all other essays, high conductivity values are due to high ionic concentration from dissolved salts of seawater. Thus, the low concentration of adenine and thymine did not have an effect on conductivity values even in high pH values.
For artificial seawater 4.0 Ga sample, adenine caused the highest increase in pH values.
Seawater 3.2 Ga, without adenine and thymine, has the highest quartz dissolution at pH lower than 8.5 (Table 2), confirming the effect of ionic strength on quartz dissolution (the highest conductivity value--Table 1).
