Time for the skeptics to eat - nay, *choke on* - their words. It seems the
qua homoeopaths have been right all along.
This paper: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v434/n7030/full/nature03383.html describes some recent scientific research which indicate that water does indeed have a memory. They’ve even managed to measure it pretty accurately.
It’s a bit of a long read, so I’ll summarise:
“Our results highlight the efficiency of energy redistribution within the hydrogen-bonded network, and that liquid water essentially loses the memory of persistent correlations in its structure within 50 fs.”
I guess that about wraps things up for the critics of homoeopathy, huh?
Oh, by the way, “50 fs” is 50 femto seconds. A femto second is 0.000,000,000,000,001 seconds. It seems that homoeopathic remedies might have a very short shelf life.
