Knipschild P. - Section 4.8
"Looking for gall bladder disease in the patient's iris", British Medical Journal 1988, 297, 1578-1581.
In this paper five iridologists were asked to judge stereo color slides of the right eyes of various people for signs of gall bladder disease. According to iridology texts, gall bladder is projected in the lower lateral part of the right eye's iris. Further, gall stones are supposed to induce small, dark spots in that part of the right iris, while inflammation of the gall bladder is said to induce white line there. Among the slides that were to be judged for telltale signs of gall bladder disease were slides of the right eyes of patients who were to have their gall bladders removed the next day. The slide set also contained slides of the right eye of age- and gender-matched controls, presumably free of gall bladder disease. Now the results: the five trained iridologists did really well in spotting gall bladder disease in the eyes of patients who actually had g.b. disease. They judged 56% of the patients' slides as showing evidence of gall bladder disease. Unfortunately, they gave just about the same percentage of FALSE positive --identifying people as having gall bladder disease who actually did not.
