Response by Professor Edzard Ernst to advert in New Statesman, 11th October 2010

In the 8th November issue of New Statesman, Professor Edzard Ernst responded to an advertisement that appeared in the 11th October issue (of the same magazine), from a lobby group called Homeopathy: Medicine for the 21st Century. Professor Ernst explains that “it contained unjustified attacks on myself and colleagues, including statements that gave a dangerously false impression of homoeopathy’s therapeutic value.”

In his response, Edzard Ernst - Professor of Complementary Medicine at the Peninsula Medical School of Exeter University - addresses how the lack of evidence supporting homeopathic remedies is potentially dangerous for patients. Read the response here.
