Heidelberg ( archive) – Have millions of suffering children for generations mistreated by their parents? An extensive study of the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research has shown that rhymes like’ Heal, Heal blessing’ or’ Heal, heal goslings’ have no demonstrable effect. Parents, despite these new findings continue to provide first aid with nursery rhymes, threatening serious consequences.
For the study, researchers observed the healing process of 100 children with mild injuries ( so-called Auas or aches and pains ). 50 of the children were provided with’ Heal, Heal blessing’ or’ Heal, heal goslings’, the other 50 were untreated. The surprising result: All injuries healed equally fast.

Kosaliks findings could soon have very concrete consequences: parents, children continue to treat the injury with inefficient nursery rhymes, must expect to be prosecuted for non-assistance
