PostHeaderIcon Oliver Twist is an acupuncturist...

I just watched the Oliver! DVD, and the special features include interviews with Oliver Twist and Fagin.

Apparently Mark Leister blew all his money when he turned 18 and is now an osteopath and an acupuncturist...

PostHeaderIcon 1023 - Homeopathy: There's nothing in it

There's a new grassroots campaign starting up in the UK.

http://www.1023.org.uk/

From the site:

"
The 10:23 campaign aims to raise awareness of the reality of homeopathy. We will tell you how it can be proven not to work, why homeopath's claims are impossible, and give patients the right information to allow them to make an informed decision on their healthcare.
"

They're starting with an open letter to Boots pharmacy...

Have a look and sign up.

Maybe we need to do something similar for NZ pharmacists?
