Abstract: Promoters of the so-called “Pyramidal Energy” suggest that non-ferrous pyramids of certain proportions and orientation could “concentrate energy”, thus conferring beneficial effects on the objects inside them. However, Cuban scientists have argued against the existence of this “energy”. Bactericidal action by “pyramidal energy” has been proposed in relation to water-induced changes, which could help to preserve organic matter. The aim was to study the survival of rat cardiomyocytes preserved inside a non-ferrous pyramid. The results showed no statistically significant difference in survival between preserved cardiomyocytes either inside or outside the pyramid or inside a wronly positioned pyramid. They indicated that pyramids exert no direct action either on cardiomyocytes or on water and the elements of the preserving solution.
