Since I no longer have input to the imbroglio on Ernst’s PULSE blog,
(well there seems to be some horrible technical problem) I wonder if whoever is commenting there, or who has access to the great man, could ask a simple question for me, as I don’t seem to be getting a satisfactory answer to it from the geniuses who have been posting commentary on my Youtube videos and blog.
The question is this:
If everything that is said against homeopathy is true, “it doesn’t work, “it’s a scam,” then why is it that its highly diluted remedies are being used in the U.S. at MD Anderson in Houston, the nation’s number one rated cancer clinic, to cure BRAIN GLIOMAS?
Here’s a link to the MD Anderson Cancer Clinic webpage about homeoapthy:
I see nothing there that says homeopaths are criminals, as has been claimed by James “the Amazing” Randi!
Here’s a study in which they report successful treatment:
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ONCOLOGY 23: 975-982, 2003
Ruta 6 selectively induces cell death in brain cancer cells but proliferation in normal peripheral blood lymphocytes: A novel treatment for human brain cancer (http://www.virtualtrials.com/pdf/ruta6.pdf)
If Ernst et al can’t answer the question, perhaps Professor Sir Dr. John Beddington, Professor Dr. David Colquhoun, Dr. Simon Singh, Amazing Randi, Dr. Ben Goldacre, MD. Professor Dr. Steven Novella, MD, or Professor Dr. PZ Myers, a real genius like one of those, could answer the question for me.
I want to know! How can this be?
How is it that we have a considerable group of talent here who have for years been saying that homeoapthy is a crime because it is a cruel fabrication, a monstrous hoax, that the substances it uses for “remedies” have no remedial action at all!
Professor Colquhoun! Amazing Randi! Simon Singh!
Homeopathy detractors Paul Morgan, Simon Baker, David Briggs, Les Rose, Andrew Lewis, Paul Holloway, David Briggs, you have lain awake in your beds, with the covers to your chins, and you may have thought, and if not, tonight you will, “what should I do if I get brain cancer?”
You muse, “Well, there is a cancer clinic in TEXAS, that was rated by Newsweek magazine as the best the U.S. has to offer. Number one! If I have enough money I could go that clinic and be treated by all the doctors there, who are the “WORLD’s BEST”, with HOMEOPATHY!”
PLEASE! ANSWER THE QUESTION!
Répétez s’il vous plaît: ”If everything I’ve said about homeopathy is true, that it doesn’t work, that it’s a scam, things like that, then OH MY GOD! . . why is it that its being used in the U.S . . at the nation’s number one rated hospital, to CURE BRAIN CANCER?”
What are we supposed to do?
WTF! I could make a Youtube video of my answer, post it on Facebook and TWEET ALL MY FRIENDS!
I’ll put the answer in my blog!
(Since we commoners don’t have direct access to these great peer minds, perhaps someone who does could pass the question along to them.)
Oh, here’s a bonus question for extra points, if you answer the first:
What do you think would happen if MD ANDERSON were to USE REAL HOMEOPATHY, the whole homeopathic materia medica . . use it classically. . for which it was designed\ . . i.e. symptomologically, by the totality of mental and physical symptoms, for anything that walks in the door?
As a simple country practitioner I do.
Why can’t they?
Why can’t you?
