Why the Constant Attacks on Homeopathy?

Thank you to Louise Mclean of the Homeopathy Heals campaign for this excellent article:  Well worth a read!

Save NHS Money on Ineffective Drugs, not Homeopathy

Jerome Burne so rightly points out that far greater savings could be made for the NHS by scrapping ineffective drugs which are no better than placebo, than by stopping funding of Homeopathy.

Nobel Prize winner reports the effects of Homeopathic Dilutions!

Professor Luc Montagnier, 2008 Nobel Prize Winner, reports the Effects of Homeopathic Dilutions:

In a recent study Professor Luc Montagnier, a French virologist who co-discovered HIV and who won the Nobel Prize in 2008, and his team report the results of a series of rigorous experiments investigating the electromagnetic properties of highly-diluted biological samples.

The study demonstrates that some bacterial DNA sequences are able to induce electromagnetic waves at high aqueous dilutions. It appears to be a resonance phenomenon triggered by the ambient electromagnetic background of very low frequency waves. The researchers used aqueous solutions that were agitated and serially diluted (the researchers note that the solutions were 'strongly agitated' and that this step was 'critical for the generation of signals'). In other words homeopathic potencies, although the word 'homeopathy' is not mentioned in the article.

The researchers found that pathogenic bacteria and viruses show a distinct electromagnetic signature at dilutions ranging from 10^-5 to 10^-12 (corresponding to 5D to 12D) and that small DNA fragments (responsible for pathogenicity) were solely accountable for the electromagnetic signal. The researchers also noted that one experiment found significant effects from dilutions as high as 10^-18 (equivalent to 18D). The electromagnetic signature changed with dilution levels but was unaffected by the initial concentration and remained even after the remaining DNA fragments were destroyed by chemical agents.

They observed that the electromagnetic signal was destroyed by heating or freezing the sample. Also, a 'cross-talk' effect was found whereby a negative sample inhibits the positive signal in another sample if they are left together overnight in a shielded container. The researchers propose that specific aqueous nanostructures form in the samples during the dilution process and are responsible for the electromagnetic effects measured.

The researchers also detected the same electromagnetic signals in the plasma and in the DNA extracted from the plasma of patients suffering from Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

This study is an important contribution to the growing evidence base in fundamental research with direct relevance to homeopathy.

Causal Link between Vaccines and Autism - using British data

Analysis of Japanese vaccine data leads to confirmation of causal link between vaccines and autism now using UK data:  The current rate of autism in British children is 1 in 64.  When is our government going to listen and do something to prevent more?  Who is going to pay to look after these poor children?
