E-waves chip from Omega Pharma withdrawn before sales begin

Omega Pharma’s mobile phone radiation countering E-waves chip was scheduled to go on sale Wednesday, but since its official launching, it has been withdrawn amid protest. A lot of people, including this writer, find it hard to believe that their product can do what they say.

The Belgian pharmaceutical firm initially announced that the E-waves chip reduced the heating effect of a mobile phone, but now it clarifies and says it can only do it to a certain degree. In other words, they aren’t quite owning up to the earlier announced levels of supposed heat reduction that they had initially indicated.

The company also says, “After the launch… a storm of protest broke out during which scientific proof of doctors and professors was brought into doubt,” speaking to Reuters.

But if you’re thinking Omega Pharma’s going to dump this whole idea for good, think again. That same report from Reuters also states that the company has just decided that it had to “repeat some tests and make the results known as soon as possible.”

They have an idea, and they believe in it whole-heartedly, apparently.

    Just do some web-research and find this “chip” popping to the surface of media attention year after year, in Europe, US, Asia. Everytime it's a similar dubious story. Everytime some people fall for it – in particular iso-called expert writers in trade publications. And I suppose, everytime the company gets a load of requests from people even dumber than tech writers and sells whatever it is they sell, making enough money to pay for the basic PR, their next coup and a good income.
    If you really do some research, you might even find ties to Scientology.
    Basic research should have shown, there's an established OTC pharma company by this name based in France. So this here chip company would not have been able to to business under their name for long. But the name sounds good, doesn't it? France, Belgium … no hints intended.
