The article, Elementary Electric Dipoles, by Ian N. Marshall recognizes that fundamental particles we know are electric monopoles and/or magnetic dipoles, but dark matter might contain the converse particles. Light electric dipoles, like neutrinos, could be abundant yet elusive. They would be attracted into polar substances (e.g. water) and strong electric fields, (e.g. in cell membranes), where they would alter dielectric constants. Experiments on five common substances after connection to a supposed biological source of these particles at field gradients of up to 8kV/cm confirmed these predictions.

In the Correspondence column of the fall/winter issue, Dana Ullman refers to the efficacy of homeopathy during the 1918 epidemic. However, there is another factor that I feel should be given more attention.

In 1921, The Journal of American Institute of Homeopathy published an article, "Homepathy in Influenza: A Chorus of Fifty in Harmony." In this piece, 50 doctors related their experiences during the epidemic.

Apart from finding homeopathy efficacious, many contributors also said that the use of aspirin led to many unnecessary deaths. Here are three quotes:

"The more Aspirin, Codein, Dobell's solution and other extra-homeopathic remedies used, the slower the recovery."

James W. Ward, MD, San Francisco

"The mortality rate in a camp was for pneumonia 25.8%. The lieutenant in charge was persuaded to discontinue Aspirin, Digitalis and Quinine and the mortality dropped speedily to 15 %with no medicine whatever. This was one ward. Whereupon it was ordered in other wards and the mortality dropped to 15% with no medicine."

W.A. Pearson, MD, Philadelphia.

"I hardly ever lost a case if I got there first, unless the patient had been sent to a drug store and bought Aspirin, in which event I was likely to have a case of pneumonia on my hands."

J.P. Huff, MD, Olive Branch, Ky.

The unanimity of these reports, in the exceptional circumstances of this epidemic, leaves an uneasy feeling that the use of aspirin for influenza is one of the 'obvious' treatments of allopathy that has, in fact, no scientific basis and may be dangerous. Does anyone know if there have been any trials that might answer this question?

Sincerely,
