El Pais, on 3 October, published an editorial supporting Spanish pharmacists who want to get homeopathy kicked out of pharmacies.
The author clearly states the opinion (that skeptics share) that homeopathy has no place being sold in establishments that have the right to dispense medicines. Why not? Because homeopathy isn’t medicine.
FarmaCiencia’s campaign by ethical pharmacists to get homeopathy kicked out of pharmacies received a great tweet of support by none other than Edzard Ernst. Please retweet to your heart’s content.
A new community of Pharmacists dedicated to the promotion of scientific medicine and resistance to pseudo medicines has announced its constitution by sending an open letter to the Ministry of Health, President of the Pharmacist’s College, the Deans of Pharmacy Faculties and the Presidents of Pharmaceutical Sciences Associations.
The letter condemns the presence of homeopathic potions in pharmacies and urges all parties to live up to the profession’s ethical code and not to allow pseudo medicines to hide behind the shield of pharmacist’s respectability.
Jesús Fernández, a Pharmacist in Madrid, is the spokesperson and driving force behind this initiative.
