Now for some science... Montagnier video - Jo Rhodes Homeopathy [cached]

I recently went to London for a workshop run by Dr Alex Tournier of the Homeopathy Research Institute. He was talking about the science and evidence for homeopathy and it was a facinating and enlightening day.

Alex also talked about some of the work of Luc Montagnier which has been very controversial.

Dr Alexander Tournier, HRI Chairman, says, "Recent statements in the media have argued that further research in homeopathy is not justified, however this is far from the case as many important questions remain unanswered.

Alex Tournier

The demeanour of this charming Frenchman couldn't have been more of a contrast to that of the horrendous Milgrom. Not only did he not slag anyone off but his was one of only two presentations at the conference that contained some science and it is rather sad that someone so well qualified is wasting their time on homeopathy. Dr Tournier is a biophysicist and a research fellow for Cancer Research UK. He is also chair of the Homeopathy Research Institute.
I don't propose to say much about the content of his presentation because, although I took copious notes, I don't have a copy of the slides he used. (Copies of all the presentations were promised to attendees; none have so far materialised.) Even with the slides, I found his argument difficult to follow and it was even more difficult to take him seriously after he'd introduced his session with probably the daftest remark made by any of the speakers during the entire day, which is that the principle of like treating like - the 'Law of Similars' - is "pretty uncontroversial".
Tournier soon made his second ludicrous and dishonest assertion of the day, which was that homeopathy's detractors never pick up on the similarity of the high dilutions principle and hormesis. Oh, good grief! I may not have a PhD in biophysics but even I know the difference between something and nothing.
Another reason why I didn't expect to be blown away by Tournier's presentation is that I'd read Gimpy's analysis of what he said last time.
