Debunking Homeopathy – Christian Orlic (Lansing)Date:
April 1, 2010
Michigan State University
220 Trowbridge Rd
East Lansing, MI 48824 United States
Please join CFI MSU for an evening of discussion and skepticism.
This week Christian Orlic will explore the history of homeopathy and explain its principle. We will critically analyze and explore the role of homeopathy in different societies. For example, Britain’s National Health Services subsidizes homeopathic remedies and these remedies can also be found in most American drug stores. The prevalence of alternative medicines should concern critical thinkers, skeptics, and humanists as their use frequently results in people ignoring science-based medicine.
Students from other area campuses are invited to attend.
