UNESCO Scientific Symposium Features Homeopathy as “New Frontiers in Medicine”

Scientist met at UNESCO headquarters in Paris France in August to discuss the medical implications of what UNESCO calls a new paradigm in biology – essentially homeopathic potentitzation. Nobel prize winner, Luc Montagnier and French and Italian scientific researchers into homeopathic paradigms were leaders at the symposium and presented rigorous scientific evidence. One of the original researchers of homeopathic mechanisms, Benveniste and his work was also discussed. UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization)  is known as the intellectual agency of the United Nations.

For the first time, a scientific symposium will discuss the emergence and possible societal and medical implications of a new paradigm in biology: electromagnetic waves and their relationship to the properties of water. This symposium will provide a synthesis of the research conducted over many years by Professor Luc Montagnier, Nobel Prize in Medicine. Professor Montagnier has worked with multidisciplinary teams of French and Italian researchers. The mathematician Cédric Villani, who received the Fields Medal in 2010, will propose a synthesis of the various presentations. He will include them in the broader context of Professor Jacques Benveniste’s work (1935-2004) on the “memory of water”, which was initiated thirty years ago. Professor Montagnier’s team is working on electromagnetic waves emitted in the area of very low frequencies and thus of low energy. Different reproducible experiments will be presented at the conference. These experiments show that these waves may play an important role in the pathogenicity of micro-organisms – bacteria and viruses – and also in physiological processes such as stem cell differentiation shown by Professor Carlo Ventura. The experimental facts will be presented by the two biologists. It appears that water is an important mediator in the transmission of molecular information, such as that carried by DNA. To achieve such transmission, water generates organized structures, which also emit electromagnetic signals. Marc Henry and Giuseppe Vitiello, relying on concepts developed by Italian physicists Giuliano Preparata and Emilio Del Giudice, will explain how quantum physics can elucidate these mysterious phenomena. They will reveal new fields of research that are areas of consistency activating water molecules. Interdisciplinarity (physics/biology) is the conference’s major message. The promoters of this conference are aware of the critical reactions aroused by this work in parts of the scientific community, so they wish to communicate their results with the utmost rigor. The aim is to foster a broad and multidisciplinary discussion. These data seem particularly important because they further enrich the immense achievements of molecular biology. They also suggest the development of new modes of transmission of genetic messages (transmission, transduction, teleportation, etc.).

International Scientific Research Group on Homeopathy Meets in Florence

The twenty sixth meeting of GIRI (International Research Group on Very-­low dose and High-­Dilution Effects), met in Florence, Italy on September 20-­22, 2012. The program was organized around four main axes: physicochemical features of HD [high dilution], studies in plants and the field, clinical and veterinary evidence, and laboratory models.
Paolo Bellavite and Lucietta Betti from the Department of Pathology and Diagnostics, University of Verona, Italy and the Department of Agroenvironmental Sciences and Technologies, University of Bologna, Italy discuss the issues presented:

For two centuries, homeopathy and science were considered to be two opposing and conflicting fields. Now things are changing, as scientific evidence begins to support many homeopathic tenets, and the homeopathic world increasingly stimulates science to investigate previously under-­evaluated and little understood subtle phenomena. For 26 years, GIRI has been promoting a fruitful dialog for the sake of furthering true science, i.e., science free from ideological barriers and preconceptions. Novel evidences have quite often disrupted previously dismissed phenomena grew in importance within new conceptual frameworks. The unusual properties of HD, which deserve further investigation, are potentially relevant not only ␣the environmental sciences and the future of humankind as a whole.
