You may recall that recently, staff from the WHO spread false information about homeopathy, declaring there was no evidence of its effectiveness for various diseases 1. They expressed indignation that homeopaths were treating the poor in third world countries. We wrote to the WHO demanding an apology, but none was forthcoming. Why, we wondered, did the WHO suddenly decide to bash homeopathy, since they really knew better. What, or whose purpose were they serving?
Now, the WHO is in trouble for spreading more false information. The Council of Europe is about to investigate the WHO for allegedly helping pharmaceutical companies create a phony rumor about a pandemic. This deceipt earned Pharma over a billion dollars and exposed millions of people to the side effects of vaccines they didn’t need. Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, chairman of the health committee, called the false pandemic one of the greatest medical scandals of the last century.
On another front, the UK Science and Technology Committee is holding a sort of inquisition for homeopathy 2 . They are poised to decide whether homeopathy is a legitimate science, which will impact the future of homeopathy there, including the survival of the homeopathic hospitals. One of the MP’s who is supposed to rule on this, Dr Evan Harris, spoke at a rally mocking homeopathy. This is akin to a U.S. senator who must vote on pollution controls, leading a rally to mock such controls. Harris got caught on video and now he’s catching flak for his shamelessly biased behavior. Homeopaths are always willing to engage in sincere and honest debate. Critics with an agenda would not have it so, and now it seems they are being caught in their own nets.
To read more about this imminent decision in the UK, read Carol Boyce’s article : “First they came for the homeopaths…” in this issue. Also, if you live in the UK, you can find a letter to send to your MP , in this issue : “Letter to Support Homeopathy in the UK”.
Note: In the UK, there will be a mass lobby of Parliament in support of homeopathy on Wednesday 24 February 2010, 2.30 P.M. See Hpathy calendar of events for more info and where to sign the petition.
