It's bullshit. I've put refutations attacking the psuedo-science on the comment section and I'm awaiting the times moderators, however, I doubt it will get printed cos it attacks how crap the article is. This piece was also picked up by badscience.net and no doubt will get attacked.
If it was The Sun I wouldn't be surprised but The Times? Just proves that most people in journalism haven't got a clue when it come to anything that is connected with science.
