My TV Interview on Homeopathy

Some weeks back I was interviewed for a TodayTonight program on homoeopathy. It was screened on April 4th, and the segment is now available on the web. You can use this link, or play the embedded video. I appear in a few segments, as do such illustrious people as Dr Simon Singh, Richard Saunders and James Rand. I think it worked very well, and I didn't make a complete fool of myself. The homoeopathic overdose section was fun to do. I have a post on more resources for you to understand homoeopathy if you wish. And today Dr. Rachie posed on the “National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) of Australia declaring: homeopathy ‘not efficacious’” (go NH&MRC!!!)

Lost opportunities; I knew the homoeopath was going to mention quantum mechanics, but I didn't do a section on that, when I said "lets wait a bit" in response to the homoeopathic sleeping tablet overdose, I should have said, "if this was real medicine, we would be in hospital having our stomachs pumped now".

Oh yeah, and to all the sceptics who signed up to my twitter account, this blog is mostly "look up it is pretty" astronomy, although I am on a bit of a roll with my comet Elenin and Nibiru posts, the "life in a meteorite" flap, the odd global warming post too and of course Intelligent Design creationism.
