Recently, one of my friends in facebook messaged me about an anti-homeopathic blog, posted by a reputed person from Pakistan. After going through his blog, I immediately emailed the following message to him:
I have just gone through your one sided article against Homeopathy (A system of medicine that is saving millions of people since many years). Why homeopaths are there in every corners of the world? Why people come to us? Are they fools to visit us even with… Continue

One of the websites that is FULL of "medical fundamentalists" is called Science Based Medicine. One of their doctors just wrote a critique of a homeopathic study on COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease):
You will note that the author mentions me personally, and then, he goes on to prove his ignorance of homeopathy and to verify his extreme… Continue

Most of the news papers say that NHS in UK has decided to stop funding Homeopathy. But the actual fact is, a committee that includes some skeptics has suggested the government to stop funding Homoeopathy. http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/seealso/2010/02/daily_view_homeopathy_and_the.html
This is the time to react.

The UK 1023 'mass overdose' on January 31st was a publicity stunt that only served yet again to show how ill-informed this group is about homeopathy, and how it works.
The videos that are posted online showed small groups in various UK cities earnestly doing their ‘bit for science’.
But where do these people get their information? Who up the chain of command feeds them lines like: “When they make a remedy they dilute it and dilute it until there is nothing left except water… Continue

Dr Evan Harris MP, Liberal Democrat Shadow Science Minister and member of the BMA Medical Ethical Committee since 1999, sits on the Science and Technology Committee carrying out the Evidence Check on homeopathy. By his own statement to the committee he has also worked with Sense About Science on numerous issues and 'has argued with Ben Goldacre many times over the years." One might wonder who put forward the witnesses for the Evidence Check, which included Tracy Brown, Director of Sense About… Continue

HOMEOPATHY IN AUSTRALIA
2009 has been a very busy year for attacks on homeopathy. We’ve had visits from people such as Dr Simon Singh, noted UK science journalist and critic of homeopathy, who was reported in just about every possible print and electronic media here as saying categorically the homeopathy doesn’t work.
We’ve had… Continue

An Evidence-Based Response to Skeptics of Homeopathy Continue
I was an electrical engineer prior to entering alternative medicine and, in fact, I turned down my acceptance to a conventional medical school (which I had previously been very much hoping to attend) on discovering naturopathic medicine during the applications process. At that time, I had no knowledge of homeopathy, however, but was really into the gym and nutrition, and felt that I wanted to be in a…

Skeptics (who I prefer to call "denialists") may be concerned about how few molecules there are in homeopathic medicines, but I am much much more concerned about the incredibly HIGH number of molecules there are in conventional drugs!
I calculated the number of molecules of common drugs that people take on a DAILY basis.
For Zoloft (setraline), the average daily dose has 1,091,963 to the 23rd power # of molecules.
For Paxil (paroxetine...formerly the #1 most… Continue

Well, it seems that the magician JAMES RANDI is not just skeptical of homeopathy and various alternative therapies, but he is even skeptical about global warming...and THIS is now embarrassing him and his fellow skeptics.
This is a link to his article:

Previously I mentioned one arm of the campaign against alternative medicine: the ongoing public relations campaign that plants slanted articles in the media. The second arm of the campaign is the pro-science community. This community enjoys attacking anything that they think is anti-science. Intelligent Design is one of their targets and, unfortunately, so is alternative medicine. What's evident here is the "us versus them" mentality. I believe this mentality is the most destructive force in… Continue

Since I compile a list of news articles about homeopathy, I am often directed to skeptics' sites, where they campaign against it. You and I have heard most of their arguments by now, But recently I was surprised by their campaign against the term "allopathy." It seems they think (or act like they think) that the term is abusive and inaccurate. This article by Walter Jarvis

The blog world is fueled on outrage. And the latest outrage among bloggers with a skeptical bent is the Huffington Post's advocacy for alternative medicine. If you've never heard of it, Huffington Post is a web news site with a liberal political slant. The site has also given space to alternative views such as articles on vaccine damage by Robert Kennedy Jr. and alternative treatments for swine flu. The zero tolerance policy of skeptics will not abide any talk of alternative medicine in their… Continue

Sir John Maddox, former editor of Nature, died April 12. He was editor during the "Benveniste affair." He first published Benveniste's paper on the action of infinitesmal doses on mast cells and then sent a team to Benveniste's laboratory to debunk him, publishing the account in the next issue of Nature.
