MRI Guru Damadian Overlooked for Nobel Prize

This year the committee that awards The Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine did the one thing it has no rights to do: it ignored the truth. Eminent scientists–leading medical textbooks and the historical facts are in disagreement with the decision of the committee. So is the US Patent Office. Even Alfred Nobel’s will is in disagreement. The committee is attempting to rewrite history.

The Nobel Prize Committee for Physiology or Medicine chose to award the prize–not to the medical doctor/research scientist who made the breakthrough discovery on which all MRI technology is based–but to two scientists who later made technological improvemen’s based on his discovery.

Reacting to the news–Professor of Biochemistry and Chemistry–Michigan State University–Ann Arbor Michigan John Throck Watson–Ph.D. said–"I was stunned to learn that the Nobel Committee has apparently become so political that it is willing to overlook documented evidence (1971) for the first discovery of the substantial T1 and T2 tissue differences discovered by Damadian–which have become the foundation of all NMR imaging."

The ANCA is urging all Armenia’s to send a free ANCA WebFax asking the Nobel Committee to correct this clear error and grant this year’s Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine to Dr. Raymond Damadian. Simply visit and enter your ZIP Code.
