UK Homeopathy Evidence Check

26 11 2009

Check out the link below for a fascinating discussion about homeopathy featuring Ben Goldcare and Edzard Ernst plus quite a few others.  This discussion is from the House of Commons Science and Technology Sub-Committee relating to government expenditure on homeopathy.

It takes the form of a grilling by a committee of two panels of experts.  The wriggling by the proponents of homeopathy is fascinating.

It is ~2 hours long and available streaming here:

No its not. I will fail to be convinced by a single article by a true believer in magic water on a online homeopathy magazine. This is not research but a whole article of special pleading and strawmen [as well as the standard misapplication of quantum physics – a common tactic by a range of CAM believers].

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page
layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what
youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
