The National Health Service (NHS) is a healthcare organization in the UK. Simon Singh, a self-proclaimed ‘free speech’ activist who has tried to silence multiple website that promote good nutrition, supplements, and homeopathic remedies over ‘traditional’ medicine is threatening legal action against regional health authorities who are part of the NHS if they continue to give any support to homeopathy.
Singh apparently doesn’t like homeopathic remedies. He is asking up to 30 Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) around the UK to review their funding of homeopathic services in their regions. Singh is among other critics of homeopathy in the UK including Edzard Ernst and David Colquhoun, some of whom are also critical of pharmaceutical company abuse of scientific protocols. But is he really in a position to put such leverage on homeopathic remedies when some people swear by them?
