    Brilliant, every child that does not have to get sick is a gain.


  • Comment on: Homeopathic 'vaccinations' could leave patients vulnerable

    Thank you very much, • Anonymous | 17-Sep-2010 6:39 pm!

    I am glad if homeopaths are not offering “vaccination” for children.

    A good clinical investigation is not necessarily an RCT. In a lot of valuable clinical practice, a randomised clinical trial is not always the best approach. Insisting on RCTs only would thus exclude valuable information learned in clinical practice.

    Like most, I could probably now and then be more humble and less satisfied with myself, and I do apologise if I have been nauseating. I do hope it is understandable, however, that I react when I read “claims that members of the Homeopathic Medical Association, which has around 300 members across the UK, were offering replacement vaccines”.



    PS I do try to avoid using military metaphors about disease, inspired by Susan Sontag, the “defend” got past me, though.

    I am not against homeopathy, and do not mind it if adults choose this treatment for themselves. But IF practicing homeopaths do indeed offer "vaccination" for children and can not back up the protective-effect claim with good clinical investigations, are there any vaccinating homeopaths that would care to defend this alleged practice? If I have misunderstood this I apologise, but, really, can you defend telling parents that "vaccination" with an agent not supported by good clinical investigations defend a child against disease?



  • Comment on: Cervical cancer death rate cut by Cisplatin combination

    Hello, thank you for this most interesting article. Is it worth mentioning that cisplatin might be a radiosensitiser?
