Homeopathy's failures are not Professor's fault

I am rather bemused by the critical comments from Sara Eames, president of the Faculty of Homeopathy, on the Complementary Medicine Crammer series in Pulse.

This series of excellent articles has been provided by the country's foremost expert in the discipline, Professor Edzard Ernst.

Professor Ernst has shown refreshing clarity and objectivity in his reviews, and the fact that Sara Eames' own pet therapy, homeopathy, has been shown to be no better than a placebo is hardly his fault.

Instead of trying to shoot the messengers (Professor Ernst and Pulse), her time would be better spent providing evidence of the efficacy of her therapies.
