Is McGill University in Canada Sponsoring Attacks on Homeopathy?

A public university in Quebec Canada called McGill University and a professor there named Joe Schwarcz received millions of dollars of funding by the head of a pharmaceutical company. It was to scientifically “investigate homeopathy”. By giving the money to a public institution it was therefore tax deductible.

This head of the pharmaceutical company, also funds other anti homeopathy skeptic groups. Mr. Scwarcz was a known skeptic and opponent of homeopathy and of course a fair and scientific investigation by him from the outset was impossible.

In fact, it appears no real scientific investigation has taken place. Instead Mr. Scwarcz continued to attack homeopathy (which he was doing before) and even took out ads in major Canadian newspapers to increase the newly funded attack. He espouses that pharmaceutical medicine is the only scientific medicine.

Mr. Scwarcz has made sure that no one finds out that one of the leading research chemists and scientists was so impressed with homeopathy that he decided to study it.  Dr Lionel R Milgrom BSc, MSc, PhD, CChem, FRSC, LCH, MARH, RHom. is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and his research and articles are highly cited in leading science journals. Dr. Migrom expertly and persuasively contends that there is a definitive scientific basis for homeopathy. He joins many other professors, researchers, scientists as well as highly trained medical doctors and specialists who are very pro-homeopathy.

Media outlets have not contacted any of the multitude of these scientists and researchers to get a pro-homeopathy comment. Instead,  Mr. Scwarcz and his cohorts have, with deep pockets, dominated the media discussion on homeopathy.

With the most recent pharmaceutical industry sourced funding going to the University of McGill the question that is being asked is-  ‘Is a Canadian public institution therefore supporting and sponsoring attacks on Homeopathy?’
