Creating Waves of Awareness

Unproven Additives in Flu Vaccine

The news about the H1N1 flu pandemic has taken a new and potentially troubling turn. First, the US government has given legal immunity to the companies that make antivirals and the flu vaccine. Second, it has suspended the usual requirement for testing for safety and efficacy. This would be troubling if the manufacturers were preparing a variation of the normal flu vaccine, with the H1N1 antigen replacing the usual mix of flu viruses. But the very disturbing development is that the flu vaccine… Continue

Crawling Through the Homeopathic Loophole

Once again, a company is trying to market nicotine laced water as a homeopathic product. This time it's being sold as a complex remedy, the water is laced with caffeine too. I don't know all the ins and outs of how homeopathic medicines are regulated in America, but this looks like another Zicam in the making -- another public relations black eye when the product is abused and causes problems. Can we see to… Continue

Bookmark These Articles

It occasionally happens that someone in the allopathic community tells the truth. It doesn't happen that often, so it's worth bookmarking for later reference. In the first article, a vice-president of Glaxo Smith Kline admits that the majority of people are not helped by the allopantic drugs they take:

The vast majority of drugs - more than 90 per cent - only work… Continue

Obama's Health Care Plan

I was wondering if anyone had definite information on whether licensed alternative health care practitioners: chiropractors, naturopaths, and acupuncture practitioners will be covered under Obama's Health care plan. A conservative friend told that they were not. I went searching on the web and found that Obama promised to cover chiropractic treatment before the election. Politicians' promises, though, are perishable goods and I don't have reliable information about the current… Continue

Us versus Them

Previously I mentioned one arm of the campaign against alternative medicine: the ongoing public relations campaign that plants slanted articles in the media. The second arm of the campaign is the pro-science community. This community enjoys attacking anything that they think is anti-science. Intelligent Design is one of their targets and, unfortunately, so is alternative medicine. What's evident here is the "us versus them" mentality. I believe this mentality is the most destructive force in… Continue

The Campaign Against "Allopathy"

Since I compile a list of news articles about homeopathy, I am often directed to skeptics' sites, where they campaign against it. You and I have heard most of their arguments by now, But recently I was surprised by their campaign against the term "allopathy." It seems they think (or act like they think) that the term is abusive and inaccurate. This article by Walter Jarvis is typical:

Although medicine never accepted… Continue

More Flu News

Sorry for my absence, I was busy building two new web sites (not homeopathy related.) I've tried to keep current with news about the H1N1 flu because I'm supposed to give a talk on the subject at our September Study Group meeting. Here's two news items you may have missed if you weren't paying close attention:

First, the pharmaceutical companies making the anti-virals used in allopathic treatment of flu have been given… Continue
