Support for Homeopathy in Science Interview

Dr. Luc Montagnier, the French virologist who won the Nobel Prize in 2008 for discovering the AIDS virus, surprised the scientific community with his strong support for homeopathic medicine in a remarkable interview published in the renowned Science magazine.
Montagnier expressed support for the often maligned and misunderstood medical specialty of homeopathic medicine. Although homeopathy has persisted for more than 200 years throughout the world and has been the leading alternative treatment method used by physicians in Europe, most conventional physicians and scientists have expressed skepticism about its efficacy due to the extremely small doses of medicines used.

Montagnier made the following strong statement for homeopathy and homeopathic doses: “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. We find that with DNA, we cannot work at the extremely high dilutions used in homeopathy; we cannot go further than a 1018 dilution, or we lose the signal. But even at 1018, you can calculate that there is not a single molecule of DNA left. And yet we detect a signal."

Further, Montagnier referred to Dr. Jacques Benveniste, a French physician and scientist whose research into homeopathy has been widely criticised in mainstream science, as a "modern Galileo”.

Although now 78, Montagnier will open a new research institute at Jiaotong University in Shanghai, China, where he will continue to explore electromagnetic waves produced by DNA in water. Asked for his motivation in the interview,he praised the Chinese for being “quite open-minded” with regard to this kind of medical and scientific research.
