The Nightingale Collaboration, which campaigns for evidence-based medicine, will submit a new complaint to the General Pharmaceutical Council on the basis of last week's Newsnight report.
Its director Alan Henness said: "This is a disgraceful state of affairs.
Good for you, Alan.
I've just listened to the Radio Scotland report... does Sense about Science know something new? Leonor implied that there was vaccination available against malaria. I don't think that's the case. There are anti-malarial drugs but that's not the same thing /nitpicking
Whilst here I'd like to share that years ago the less well informed me did consult a homeopath for a condition that conventional medicine couldn't successfully treat (endometriosis - a condition I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy). It cost me a bucketload of money I didn't have, was ridiculously complicated, yet I persevered, as women who are desperate to become pregnant do When I did become pregnant, I thought yes, it works, and spent the next few years extolling the "benefits". It was only when I met Alan and Maria, on an old yahoo group, who patiently explained the lack of scientific vigour or proof, in face of my lack of rationality, and I started to research some more, that I realised what a dupe I'd been.
Since then I've always tried to gently educate others as they so gently educated me. A very belated thank you both
