A call for correction – bias on Wikipedia re. Homeopathy

The information presented on the encyclopedic platform ‘Wikipedia’, on the topic of ‘homeopathic medicine’, is severely biased!

Dana Ullman, evidence based homeopath,  has composed an open letter to Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, outlining some of the misinformation contained in the Wikipedia-article on homeopathy, and has provided evidence refuting the same. He demands a rectification of the incorrectly presented details on homeopathy. The letter was also signed by other experts in the field of homeopathy, complementary medicine, health and medicine.

Dana Ullmans letter has been published, dated 10th October 2014 at:

The report undertaken by the Australian NHMRC,  to investigate the evidence of efficacy of homeopathy for over 60 conditions concluded that homeopathy was no more effective than placebo.

The Homeopathy research institute reviewed the report and found it biased and flawed for various reasons!
