The Australian government is reviewing a legal loophole allowing pharmacists to prescribe natural therapies such as homeopathy, animal hormones to check their efficiency and be sure it is not risky for the women's health.


Let's hope that they make it mandatory for these quacks to comply with the same standards as 'regular medicine' (in other words: medicine)

Thanks for the link.

It seems the Australians' consumer protection agency is serious about tackling quackery. What is encouraging is that these efforts appear to be successful.

I wonder if the agency would be willing to schlepp SA's health ministry off to The Hague on account of its obstinately ludicrous claims about the African potato & friends trouncing HIV/AIDS. After all, it's obvious that some Australians can come into harm's way as a result of our stupidity.

I think it was Michael Shermer who said:
What do you call alternative medicine that works?

Medicine!
