“His research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine, between 1987 and 1992,
revealed that the environment, operating through the membrane, controlled the behavior
and physiology of the cell. His discoveries, which ran counter to the established scientific
view that life is controlled by the genes, gave rise to one of today’s most important fields
of study, the science of
. Many subsequent papers by other researchers have
since validated his concepts and ideas.
is to biology what quantum physics was to physics; it has turned our
age-old understanding of biology upside down; or, as I’ve put it many times already, the
opposite of what we have always believed is true. From
, we now know our
perception of the environment controls our DNA, not the other way around.
Bruce is a brilliant man and a good friend. Unfortunately, he still believes what’s
“out there” – the human body in particular – is real; but despite that, through his best-

he offers some very important insights into the effects of beliefs on our lives.
How we see life determines our behavior, and since perceptions can be wrong, it is
more accurate to say that beliefs control biology – what you believe creates your life
The first example he offers is what is called the “placebo effect.
It is normally used as a medical term, meaning a patient is given something neutral –
like a sugar pill – and yet it makes them feel better. There is no chemical reason in the
placebo for it to have any effect at all on the body, but it does somehow. That “somehow”
is because the patient
it will, and nothing else. It is the patient’s belief that
changes their biology and their behavior.
Statistics reveal that one-third of all medical healings are the result of the placebo
r. Bruce Lipton began his scientific career as a cell biologist. He received his
Ph.D. from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville before joining the Department of
Anatomy at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine in 1973, where his
research on muscular dystrophy focused on the molecular mechanisms controlling cell
behavior. In 1982, Dr. Lipton began examining the principles of quantum physics and
how they might be integrated into his understanding of the cell’s information processing
systems. In the process he discovered that the brain of a cell is not in the nucleus, which
is what I was taught in school, but in the membrane – the outer surface, or “skin” of the
