Water memory: a breakthrough in science

Water is the key element of life as up to 70% of the human adult body is water. This incredible element that we thought we knew well may have unexpected properties and might play a role greater than we could imagine. Previously, the known key properties of water were only limited to water being colorless, odorless, universal solvent. The researchers at Aerospace Institute of the University of Stuttgart in Germany have developed a theory that water has memory. Water memory is the ability of water to retain a memory of any substances or objects previously dissolved in it even after an arbitrary number of serial dilutions. For instance, a flower is immersed in a glass of water. Water then picks up the information that this flower has been immersed in it. It then retains that information meaning that through a microscopic view you could recognize the flower in every single drop of this glass. This theory may also validate the claims made for highly diluted homeopathic medicines. The one way to explain this would be, water molecules somehow can retain a memory of the antibodies that they had previously been in contact with, so that a biological effect would remain when the antibodies were no longer present. The notion that water has memory was first brought forth by French immunologist Dr. Jacques Benveniste in 1988 through one of his controversial articles published in the journal Nature. Later other scientists including Dr. Masaru Emoto also supported his idea, but it remained controversial. However, only after the intriguing evidence shown by the new research at the Aerospace Institute the idea of water memory has begun to be accepted by mainstream scientists. Water memory certainly has the power to change the course of life we are living. Nevertheless, more vigorous research needs to be conducted to further uncover facts around water memory.
