IIEST starts cancer research based on homeopathy tenets

KOLKATA : The elite laboratories of the Indian Institute of Engineering, Science and Technology (formerly Besu and BE College) have initiated research on early diagnosis of cancer cells in the human body on the lines of homeopathic principles, prompting leading city doctors to say that already rationed state funding for medical research should be spent on tried-and-tested methods of allopathic treatment instead of encouraging alternative methods.
The IIEST has been sanctioned a grant of Rs 11 crore by the Ayush ministry to start the Bholanath Chakraborty Centre for Advanced Research in Homeopathy.
The first tranche of the grant already in, the institute has appointed research scholars and faculty members. The overall research progress will be monitored by Rathin Chakraborty, noted homeopath and Howrah mayor, who is also the son of the late legendary homeopath, Bholanath Chakraborty.
The main aim of the research is to ascertain if it is possible for homeopathic drugs to identify and intercept cancer cells as they are formed in the body and start knocking out healthy cells.
Inflammatory diseases and the effect of homoeopathic medicines on them is also being studied as part of a second research project. The researchers will also try to find out a quality control method for Indian homoeopathic drugs.
