"Just as Nanotechnology has the potential to send nano particles within the body system to seek out, and treat afflicted parts, Pranayam in Yoga sends Oxygen..."
Spiritual guru, and world-renowned proponent of the ancient Indian tradition of Yoga, Baba Ramdev, has now exalted the status of Yoga to nanotechnology...
Speaking on the topic, "Bridging the gap: Nanohealth", as part of the three-day summit on bio- and nano- technology organized by industry body, Assocham, the spiritual leader reportedly said that "using Yoga to treat a disease is just another example of using nanotechnology in medicine".
A man who has made a mark for his uncompromising stance on the virtues of Yoga, and who has been in the eye of many a controversy till date, reportedly said, "In Yoga, we use breathing techniques to treat a disease. This provides Oxygen to the affected parts of the body."
"Just as Nanotechnology has the potential to send nano particles within the body system to seek out, and treat afflicted parts, Pranayam in Yoga sends Oxygen to the remotest parts inside the body which need oxygen for cure."
Meanwhile, the other main panelist, Peter Grutter, professor of Physics at Canada's McGill University, and world leader in Nanotechnology research, lauded Swami Ramdev's use of Yoga in the curing of diseases.
Grutter said that from a philosophical point of view, and as a scientist himself, it was very interesting to know how Ramdev described curing diseases through Yoga.
The professor categorically said that there is no such thing as dogma in Science, and that Nanotechnology has to be evaluated to see what are its positive and negative effects.
In the end the good professor added that it is all about what society needs. "Do people want nano particles running in their body to cure some Cancer or do they not?" he said.
