The French virologist who stunned the world with his discovery of the HIV virus has done it again with what may be the medical discovery of the ages. But because of what he calls “intellectual terrorism” the Nobel laureate is leaving his home country to set up shop in China.
His name is Luc Antoine Montagnier. He is a French virologist and joint recipient with Françoise Barré-Sinoussi and Harald zur Hausen of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Now he has something new. The discovery of proof for a new medical paradigm, complete with in vitro and in vivo evidence . . and supportive texts on how to use it.
Montagnier’s published research reported detecting electromagnetic signals that were produced by “aqueous nanostructures” from biologically active bacterial DNA sequences.
It is perhaps the most controversial scientific study to date. It sets the scientific world ablaze with controversy.
It is not just a shot across the bow of the old worn out bump and grind biological paradigm for medicine failures exposed by the current raging cancer epidemic.
It is a bomb about to go off.
In a recent interview by SCIENCE MAGAZINE, Montagnier defended renowned immunologist Jacques Benveniste, who became the target of ridicule and obloquy when he also declared that the high dilutes used in homeopathy have biologoical effects.
SCIENCE MAGAZINE: You have called Benveniste a modern Galileo. Why?
LUC MONTAGNIER: Benveniste was rejected by everybody, because he was too far ahead. He lost everything, his lab, his money. … I think he was mostly right, but the problem was that his results weren’t 100% reproducible.
SCIENCE MAGAZINE: Do you think there’s something to homeopathy as well?
LUC MONTAGNIER: 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. I have applied for funding from other sources, but I have been turned down. There is a kind of fear around this topic in Europe. I am told that some people have reproduced Benveniste’s results, but they are afraid to publish it because of the intellectual terror from people who don’t understand it.
