Public Outraged by Claim That Crop Circles Heal Parkinsons by
Croppie Researcher Lucy Pringle
Posted July 8, 2011
More circles cropping up in Marlborough area.
Thursday 9th June 2011

There has been a bumper crop of corn circles in the Marlborough area, says researcher
Lucy Pringle, who is investigating whether this annual phenomenon could have health
restoring properties.

Hampshire author Miss Pringle has spent 20 years studying and photographing the circles and other
formations that have appeared mainly in Wiltshire with the focus on the Marlborough Downs and the
Silbury Hill area.

Formations have appeared at two favourite locations, in a field by The Sanctuary on Overton Hill
between West Overton and West Kennett and at Hackpen Hill on the Marlborough-Wootton Bassett
road to the downs.

Miss Pringle photographed two of the most recent formations at Wroughton and East Kennett and
said that so far there had been about 12 patterns, more than at the same time last year.

She said she believed from the experience of one of her friends that the patterns could
hold a mystical key to alleviating some health problems.

“In 1997 a friend with Parkinson’s Disease stopped shaking for 24 hours after going into
crop circles,” said Miss Pringle, who said that traces of a dopamine – a substance in the
nervous system which helps regulate movement and emotional response – had been
found in the patterns by researchers.

“My focus this year is trying to establish a connection between Parkinson’s Disease and
crop circles,” said the author who is also fund-raising for Parkinson’s research.

Miss Pringle, who has lectured world-wide on crop circles, has appealed to people not to trespass on

“I know that people in their excitement tend to rush into the fields without thinking and without realising
that it is not their land; the land belongs to farmers and it is their livelihood.”

shame on you miss Pringle for this vapid new-age twittering!
Suggesting people can be healed is a huge fraud!
How about telling people about the poisons on the crop? The insecticide & pesticides, growth
inhibitors and the like that Can damage peoples health.
Anyone who thinks that crop circles are made by anything other than people needs to seek help from
a therapist!”

Each year someone claims something else about the crop circles, yet trying to prove a link between a
cure for Parkinson's and human-made crop patterns strikes me as being a bit cruel.

Crop circles are a hoax, any link between them and possible health restoring properties is completely
spurious. There is no factual evidence or actual truth in these claims, just a jumble of pseudo ideas,
put together in an attempt to make a serious claim.

Perhaps, instead of appealing for people not to trespass into farmer's fields, she should appeal to the
people who make them not to inflict the damage in the first place!”

Talk about gullible. Miss Pringle should lay off the herbal tea a bit and then she would realise that all
the crop circles are man made and that Father Christmas, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and God
him/herself is just a figment of man's imagination. I bet she buys "lucky" heather from the pikeys as
well just in case.”

As there is no by-line to this "story" one is left to conclude that the only "journalistic" input was a bit of
cutting and pasting from La Pringle's press release!!!

“In 2012 a friend with FLATULENCE will stop **** for 24 hours after going into crop circles,” said Miss

Ksrandall - who the h*** are you (to use your words) to come on here and attack people for
questioning Lucy's ideas? I am not a member of the EDL, nor do I support any of their ideas. So,
please do not make assumptions about people you don't know.

As she has made a claim about the possibility of a cure for Parkinsons, I absolutely have the right to
question her methodology and criteria. I also reserve the right to question her beliefs and theories to
how the crop circles are formed.

I don't care what she believes, if she thinks that little green men made the crop circles, then so be it.
But if a person makes claims, creates a website etc, then they must expect to be questioned and
challenged on that too.

I openly acknowledge that those beliefs are different than mine and I respect that, but that does not
mean I have to believe them!”
