Electromagnetic signals from bacterial DNA?

Luc Montagnier received the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), but now he came up with a more than strange theory. He thinks DNA can teleport from one tube to another via electromagnetic signals. Is this the so-called Nobel-disease?

French virologist Luc Montagnier stunned his colleagues at a prestigious international conference when he presented a new method for detecting viral infections that bore close parallels to the basic tenets of homeopathy.

Although fellow Nobel prize winners — who view homeopathy as quackery — were left openly shaking their heads, Montagnier’s comments were rapidly embraced by homeopaths eager for greater credibility.

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.

  1. I’m guessing you really wanted to put TWO question marks at the end of the headline, signalling that you’re quite skeptical.:-) When I first saw the headline, the single ? suggested that you were saying this just might be plausible.

    Or are you?

    (I have a new level of interest in details of your content, because I forward selected items to my daughter, who’s a high school science teacher in Massachusetts.)

    • I agree, a second question mark seems far more appropriate… I like it.
