Nobel Prize Laureate Stuns Colleagues with Homeopathy At A Prestigious International Scientific Meeting

At a recent international meeting of Nobel Laureates held last week in Germany, Luc Montagnier presented a new method for detecting viral infections using the principles of homeopathy. He is a nobel laureate who discovered the link between HIV and AIDS.

“Montagnier told the conference last week that solutions containing the DNA of pathogenic bacteria and viruses, including HIV, “could emit low frequency radio waves” that induced surrounding water molecules to become arranged into “nanostructures”. These water molecules, he said, could also emit radio waves.

He suggested water could retain such properties even after the original solutions were massively diluted, to the point where the original DNA had effectively vanished. In this way, he suggested, water could retain the “memory” of substances with which it had been in contact — and doctors could use the emissions to detect disease.”

For the lay person such claims may sound technical, but uncontroversial. For scientists they are highly provocative because they embody principles which are extremely similar to those that underpin homeopathy. Homeopathic medicines work on the principle that a toxic substance taken in minute amounts will cure same symptoms that it would cause if it were taken in large amounts.
Montagniers claims come at a sensitive time, with British Medical Associations annual conference last week calling for the National Health Service to stop spending 4 million a year on homeopathy.
