An allopathy doctor from kerala, an “eminent hepatologist” attatched to a “center of excellence” of a leading hospital, who is engaged in reasearching about “dangers of homeopathy”, has declared that he has found out the quantity of arsenic present in homeopathic drug Arsenic Alb 30. According to him, 1 kg of Ars Alb 30 globules he purchased from market contains 0.18 mg of crude arsenic, and hence it is a very dangerous drug to be used in human beings!
This poor guy seems to have misunderstood that homeopathic drugs are administered to patients as KILOGRAM DOSES of globules!
1 kg of No: 40 sugar globules commonly used by homeopaths approximately consists of around 32000 globules. That means, 1 medicated globule of Ars Alb 30 may contain 0.18/32000 or 0.00000562 mg of arsenic! We can calculate how much negligible quantity of arsenic will enter our body by taking 3 or 4 hlobules of Ars Alb 30, even if the “invention” of our allopathy scientist is right!
What “danger” such a small quantity of arsenic can cause? Our Resepected scientist is bound to answer. Even if a person takes 4 pills of ars alb 30 bds daily for 360 days, total arsenic entering the body through 2880 pills will be much lesser than 18 microgram, that is much below one days reccommended dietary requirement!
Please do some calculations and tell me sir, how much arsenic will reach into the body by consuming Ars Alb 30, 4 pills bds for 3 days? Is it enough to cause toxicity “leading to liver failure and death”?
Arsenic is a trace element that occurs naturally in very small amounts in the diet. Its exact functions are not known. The estimated adult daily intake of arsenic from a typical diet is 12-50 mcg. A dietary requirement of 12-25 mcg/day has been suggested.
Please look into some quick facts regarding arsenic in environment as well as our food articles:
The arsenic content ranged from 0.001 mg/kg in cabbages to 0.104 mg/kg also in bananas.
Inorganic arsenic that exists in soil is highly attracted to sulfur compounds in brussels sprouts, along with other cruciferous vegetables, including kale, broccoli, and cauliflower.
It has been evidenced that arsenic in garlic is present in the most toxic inorganic species As(III) and As(V).
The amounts of As(III) tended to be higher in non-processed nuts such as cashews, almonds, pine nuts, walnuts etc.
The arsenic content of raw rice varies from 0.1 to 0.4 mg of inorganic arsenic/kg of dry mass. Arsenic is concentrated in rice bran.
The cocoa powder revealed the maximum metal concentrations of 0.303 ± 0.035 mg/kg for cadmium, 1.228 ± 0.146 mg/kg for lead and 0.094 ± 0.013 mg/kg for arsenic.
It has also been reported that honey can be contaminated with heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium.
Arsenic contamination of groundwater is a form of groundwater pollution which is often due to naturally occurring high concentrations of arsenic in deeper levels of groundwater. It is a high-profile problem due to the use of deep tube wells for water supply in the Ganges Delta, causing serious arsenic poisoning to large numbers of people.
Tobacco contains arsenic so the cigarette/cigar/cigarillo/hookah smoke you inhale does too. Arsenic is introduced into tobacco through the farming process, and is present in small quantities in cigarette smoke. Inorganic arsenic is present in mainstream tobacco smoke and presumably in sidestream smoke as well. Smoking makes it harder for your body to get rid of arsenic before it damages your cells. Arsenic exposure and smoking can increase your risk of lung, kidney and bladder cancer, and heart disease.
Actually, going though the “research paper” of this “allopathy scientist” is a real fun, making us wonder how these people claiming themselves to be “experts”, “researchers” and “scientists” could stoop so low, proving themselves to be pathetically biased and ignorant of the subject they are dealing with as well as the “scientific method” they boast about!
In this “research paper” our researchers from “center of excellence” have claimed to present “three cases of acute liver injury, leading to death in one patient with underlying non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) cirrhosis, after consumption of the homeopathic remedy Arsenic Alb 30 for COVID-19 prevention.”
A comparative study of arsenic content in banana and arsenic Alb 30 will be usefull to realize the folly of our “researcher” attacking homeopathy.
Wikipedia says that 1 kg of banana contains 0.1mg of arsenic. 1 gm banana contains 0.0001 mg of arsenic It means, 0.015 mg arsenic enters our body when we consume 150 gram of average sized banana.
Arsenic detected in 1 kg of Arsenic Alb 30 is 0.18 mg. Arsenic in 1 gm of Ars Alb 30- 0.00018 mg
Arsenic in 150 gm of Ars Alb 30- 0.027 mg
Arsenic we get by consuming 150 gm of banana is approximately equivalent to that we get from 75 gm of Arsenic Alb globules 75 gm of Arsenic Alb 30 globules will contain 2400 globules.
It means, arsenic our children get by eating 150 gms of banana will be equivalent to arsenic they may get by taking 2400 Ars Alb 30 globules.
Since the dosage of Ars Alb 30 per day is 3 globules, they will have to take it for 800 days to get arsenic equivalent to that they get by eating 150 gms of banana ONE DAY
If a child takes one banana every day for 300 days in a year, he will get arsenic equivalent to that he may get by taking 300 x 75 or 22.5kg of arsenic Alb 30 globules or 720000 globules of arsenic Alb 30.
Respected learned paediatrician, kindly tell us which is more dangerous to our children, 3 globules of homeopathic arsenic Alb 30 per day, or one banana per day?
They know very well that “arsenic, known as the king of poisons is a highly toxic substance with the potential to cause acute as well as chronic injury to multiple organ systems, mainly skin, lung, liver, and kidneys”.
But these “researchers” failed pathetically to understand the difference between ARSENIC and ARSENIC ALB 30! They should know, homeopathic ARS ALB 30 will not contain even a single molecule of ARSENIC, since t is diluted to 30c or a ratio “1:1 followed by 60 zeros”, which is very much above avogadro limit.
If their argument is that ARS ALB 30 still contains ARSENIC particles, they should have tested the sample used by the patients they subjected to study, and the test report showing the presence and quantiy of arsenic in the sample attatched to the “research paper”! Instead, they say “analysis of drugs consumed could not be performed in view of inadequate sample availability”. Is it so difficult for anybody to procure a sample of arsenic alb 30 for such a “sample analysis”? Without conducting such a sample analysis, how could they come to the conclusion that ARSENIC ALB 30 contains such a high amount of ARSENIC to cause “acute liver toxicity and death” by using “4 pills” or “three drops”? They are bound to say how much ARSENIC will be present in 4 globules or 3 drops of homeopathic ARS ALB 30, and is that quantity enough to produce the toxic effects of ARSENIC.
And still our “expert hepatologist” builds up stories about “cases of acute liver injury, leading to death in one patient with underlying non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) cirrhosis, after consumption of the homeopathic remedy Arsenic Alb 30 at a dosage of 4 pills bds for 3 days for COVID-19 prevention.”
OUR SCHOLARLY “RESEARCHER” SEEMS TO HAVE LOST HIS COMMON SENSE DUE TO HIS STRONG HOSTLITY TOWARDS HOMEOPATHY!
