|4/27/2015 - After repeatedly declaring that homeopathic remedies are just inert water and no better than a placebo, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has suddenly had a schizophrenic moment and decided that homeopathy is now imminently dangerous!

|11/26/2012 - Living in a toxic world isn't easy, but we can protect ourselves with a bit of knowledge and awareness. Vaccination is a prime example.

|5/4/2012 - When it comes to medicine and doctors, most people in America believe that if it's not expensive, it won't work.

|11/16/2011 - It's ironic that in a state sponsored medical system such as England's, there has been a big push by the medical powers to eliminate funding for homeopathy.

|10/13/2011 - Homeopathy is a specific form of alternative (holistic) medicine which was developed by Samuel Hahnemann, M.D., a German physician, in the late eighteenth century.

|9/13/2011 - Most scientists would state categorically that homeopathy is a scientific impossibility.

|8/26/2011 - The primary purpose of this article is to encourage a stronger commitment from doctors and parents to consider using safer medical care for infants and children FIRST before resorting to more dangerous treatments.

|5/24/2011 - Dr. Kevin Smith, a bioethics expert at the University of Abertay Dundee, Scotland, in the Journal of Bioethics, argued that homeopathy is a waste of valuable resources.

|2/21/2011 - Homeopathy has been ignored and attacked so much that its economic efficacy is overlooked. This has been going on for over a century.
