Research on the ultraweak photon emission from anti-cancer plants


UPE (Ultraweak photon emission) is one kind of a common phenomenon in biological organisms. It contains a wealth of information of biological functions. In this paper, single photon counting system is used to measure UPE of some anti- cancer herbal plants. For the plants, the changes of UPE under different water condition are stud-ied and the varying laws of ultraweak photon number with time are analysed. The results are higher fit double exponential decay law.
