Homeopathy in the age of evidence-based medicine
"The evolution of the allopathic practice has shifted the goal-posts in the allopathy-homeopathy debate. While it is possible to perceive the recent attacks on homeopathy as an attempt from the medical establishment to cement its control of the market, and undoubtedly this element exists, it is also important to consider the possibility that the recent attacks are so successful because they are hitting the right spot."dowanload it here: Homeopathy in the age of evidence-based medicine(40 KB)
