Water covers three-fourths of the earth surface and constitutes 60-70 wt % of the living world. Water properties are found to be very effected by magnetic and electric field. The aim of this work was to study to what extend magnetic treated water can enhance the hemoglobin derivatives concentrations where these concentrations are affected by environmental factors specially heavy metals poisoning as lead ions elevation. Experiment was conducted to sixty seven rats subdivided into four groups. Control group (G1), animals neither received lead ions nor magnetic treated water (MTW) as drinking water. Second group (G2) whose received MTW only. Third group (G3) received lead ions for 21 days. Fourth group (G4) those received lead ions concomitant with chelation therapy of di-mercapto-Succinic Acid (DMSA) without MTW. Fifth group (G5) those received lead ions concomitant with chelation therapy of di-mercapto-Succinic Acid (DMSA) with MTW. Hemoglobin auto-oxidation rate, blood intrinsic viscosity, hemoglobin electric conductivity and hemoglobin different derivatives concentrations. Results revealed significant enhancement in all hemoglobin parameters in all groups specially those did not exposed to heavy metals. In conclusion, it is safe to say that magnetic treated water play a role in enhancement of hemoglobin performance.
