We looked into the biophotonic scanner (from early 2015 - click here to their website). I decided it was an example of weak science and could find no evidence for any of the claims that they make. They are essentially applying Raman spectroscopy to scan and looking for specific absorbance peaks. The problem is that there is NO evidence to date that:
- The measurements are reproducible.
- The presence of absorbance means that there are more of the anti-oxidant present.
- That increasing circulating levels of anti-oxidant has any bearing on health.
Many companies have crap that they sell as supplements that somehow magically cure disease or conditions without any scientific basis. I can guarantee that none of this companies scientists would accept my challenge to a debate. We offered to carry out a study to see if the machine could even be used to correlate risk of AMD with supposed anti-oxidant levels. They refused.
