reports that the BBC discontinued the complementary medicine section of its Health Website.

Apparently, they were receiving “curious and abnormal amount of letters and e-mails demanding that information on such therapies as homeopathy and cranial osteopathy be removed.” is surprised, characterizing the BBC as “respected worldwide for its impartiality and integrity.”


I think that assessment of the BBC is outdated. It might have been true 50 years ago, but not today. With respect to CAM, some pages still survive, but they are trivial and not worth the bandwidth.
