10. Is NCCAM funding research on homeopathy?Although I've not reviewed the experimental designs of the above studies, it's a safe bet the significance level is set at 1/20 rather than the more appropriate 1/10000. If such is the case, I must call on the NIH to shut down those investigations immediately. Precious research resources should not be wasted on badly designed studies at the taxpayer's expense.
Yes, NCCAM supports a number of studies in this area. For example:
- Homeopathy for physical, mental, and emotional symptoms of fibromyalgia (a chronic disorder involving widespread musculoskeletal pain, multiple tender points on the body, and fatigue).
- Homeopathy for brain deterioration and damage in animal models for stroke and dementia.
- The homeopathic remedy cadmium, to find out whether it can prevent damage to the cells of the prostate when those cells are exposed to toxins.
