Following the debate: homeopathy and anthroposophic medicine
How is it that this comparatively small and emerging sector is able to fill the headlines so regularly? Homeopathy has always been the subject of public debate and from its inception has provoked scientific disputes. This is an intrinsic outcome of its specific paradigms, which are increasingly supported by good data. Scientific debate is important. However, it is increasingly clear that some actors in this debate base their arguments on false information and unscientific methods, with an increasing intention of influencing policy making on homeopathic medicinal products. This article provides a round-up of news on homeopathy that has been recently in the public eye, both constructive and negative, bringing you up to date with the latest stories and giving you access to the often hidden facts behind the headlines.
