Struck experts did not even focus on what Milne attributed to patients of a person from the “healthy” group.
However, eight months later, the experiment acquired unexpected turn when that same person taken from the street in order to “dilute” sick participants, was diagnosed by doctors Parkinson’s disease. Thus, a pensioner is faultless identified all subjects with this disease.
