Good for you, Alan.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.
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
