In a move that has significant implications for the understanding of how homeopathy works, virologist and Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier has left France to pursue his high dilution research in China.
This has shocked many from the scientific community who still hold that homeopathy’s ‘memory of water’ concept is implausible.
But Montagnier, who has already won a Nobel prize for his joint research into AIDS, no longer has to be concerned about losing his scientific credibility.
He says, “I can’t say that homeopathy is right in everything. What I can say now is that the high dilutions are right. High dilutions of something are not nothing. They are water structures which mimic the original molecules.”
Previous research by Montagnier has shown that electromagnetic waves do in fact emanate from highly diluted DNA of various pathogens.
Jiaotong University in Shanghai has said this celebrated researcher will lead a team in this research as part of it’s science faculty at the newly created “Montagnier Insititute” .
We wish Montagnier and his fellow researchers every success. Homeopathy has now been used to treat disease and suffering for over 200 years so an understanding of how this happens is well overdue.
