In this experiment, we have observed the effect of the emitted qi on the growth of mice. As a comprehensive factor of physical, chemical and biological function, the emitted qi can both cure diseases and strengthen health, but can it promote the growth of creatures? In order to find out the answer to the question, we are among the first people who do research on this subject.
We have observed the growth of over 60 mice and got satisfactory results. The body length of the test mice is on the average 10.26 cm, while that of the control mice is 9.86. The difference is 0.4 cm. The length of the test mice's hind legs is 3.33 cm, while that of the control mice is 3.23 cm. The two results are statistically significant (p<O.05). Meanwhile, we have determined the amount of growth hormone in mice's serum with the isotope method. In the four experiments, the amounts of the test mice were all higher than those of the control ones by 0.81, 2.3, 1.55 and 1.43 ng/ml, respectively. The difference between these two groups was very distinct (p<O.01). The result shows that the emitted qi can promote the growth of mice's bodies and hind legs and help increase the amount of growth hormone in mice's serum, which implies that the emitted qi can promote and help the growth of creatures: and that offers biological proof to the actual existence of the emitted qi and provides important information and methods for application and research.
