      I concur, this looks like a scam.

      Since I don't know if the original poster is innocent or part of it, I'll
      develop a little.



      A patch which would create amino acids, water and oxygen ? From what ?


      > > Using the principle of Resonant Energy Transfer,

      The what ??? I'm engineer, I've also attended med school, and I've had top
      marks in biology ever since I was a kid. I've never herd of this so-called
      "principle".




      A simple google search turns up a significant amount of references to
      Resonant Energy Transfer.

      What is Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)?

      This technique is also know as fluorescence resonance energy transfer. FRET
      is a Quantum mechanical process in which the radiationless transfer of
      excitation energy occurs between a donor blue fluorescent protein (BFP) fluorophore
      and an acceptor green fluorescent protein (GFP) fluorophore. Efficiency of
      this energy transfer varies inversely with the sixth power of the distance
      between the fluorophore-tagged proteins. Resonance energy transfer can occur
      only at 3ž4 ~100 Å, and the efficiency of energy transfer is very sensitive to
      the distance separating BFP- and GFP-fusion proteins.
