Dr. Jacques Benveniste's talk at Stanford happened on June 7, 1999.  I keep this page here on the web as part of the historical record.  Go to his website digibio.com to see the great progress that he continues to make in his work.  -- Chris Duffield PhD  

Historic note:   Thanks to email notifications, phone networking, and a campus plastered with color posters, Munzer Auditorium was filled beyond capacity, with people sitting in the aisles.  It was an unusual audience, including pharmacologists and homeopaths, business people and scientists.   After a very brief introduction by Chris Duffield, Ph.D.,  Dr. Benveniste gave a well-received talk, and then answered questions.   A wonderful reception with great refreshments followed. (Sponsored by Dr. Joseph Levy and his wife.)  It was a fabulous day!

For copies of videotape taken at the event, contact Dr. Vladimir Poponin by email or phone (415)922-5776

ABSTRACT:    Our present research involves what has been named "the memory of water". First we empirically observed that highly dilute biological agents (i.e. in the absence of any physical molecule) triggered relevant biological systems. Some of these experiments were reproduced in three external laboratories which cosigned an article on the subject (Nature, 1988, 333, 816-818). Next, blind experiments with an external (CNRS) team showed that the activity of highly dilute agonists was abolished by an oscillating magnetic field, which had no comparable effect on the genuine molecules. Later, several hundred experiments have confirmed our ability to transfer to water, using an amplifier, the specific molecular activity of more than 30 substances, such as physiological and pharmacological agonists, antibodies (purified or in whole serum) and antigens. More recently, we digitally recorded (sampling 44 kHz) specific biological activities -- including the specific signals of bacteria -- on a computer. When "replayed" to water, plasma, target organs, cells, or an antigen-antibody reaction, the recorded signal induced an effect characteristic of the original substance.  

These results strongly suggest the electromagnetic nature of the molecular signal, heretofore unknown. This signal, "memorized" and then carried by water, most likely enables in vivo transmission of the specific molecular information. We have recently obtained direct evidence for the critical role of water in the transmission of the molecular signal, at usual concentration as well as at high dilution. Homeopathic applications rely empirically on this property of water.

At the least, these advances illustrate the reality of the high dilution phenomenon and allow for the transmission and detection at a distance of any normal or pathological molecular activity. They also attest to the influence of electromagnetic fields on living matter. At most, they could profoundly change biology and medicine.
