Asunto: homeopathy refund stopped

>The British Medical Journal, May 1997, Volume 314, page 1574 stated that
>the London health authority decided to stop payment for homeopathic
>treatment because there "is not enough evidence to support its use."
>More than 500 patients a year were referred for homeophathic
>treatments.  The money spent on complementary treatments could have paid
>for 100 hip replacments.  They have decided to pay for only evidence
>based treatments and found that the studies describing homeopathic
>treatments were "methodologically poor."  Spokesperson for the Royal
>Homoeopathic Hospital stated that "We should not have to justify
>ourselves more than conventional medicine.  Only 50% of conventional
>medicine is evidence based."
