Paper Abstract

Spontaneous ultraweak photon (biophoton) emissions from hands are measured for healthy subjects. The data provide basic reference information for diagnostic application of biophoton emission. The overall average of biophoton emissions from the hands is 226.4 ± 14.3 counts per second. The asymmetry of the biophoton emission rates between the left and the right hands could be significant for both western and oriental diagnosis.
