“The heir to the throne will not accept that treatments such as homeopathy, acupuncture and chiropractic therapy do not work in the vast majority of cases…Singh said that hundreds of scientific studies had concluded that alternative medicine is ineffective. Yet despite this, the Prince of Wales continues to believe the therapies can help patients because of his ideological commitment to the natural world, Singh said. ‘He only wants scientific evidence if it backs up his view of the natural treatment of health conditions,’ he said…Singh blames the growing alternative medicine industry partially on celebrity endorsements, including the Prince…Singh is campaigning for alternative medicines to be more fully labelled so that patients can be properly informed about their limited benefits…Last year Singh won a court battle with the British Chiropractic Association, who sued him after he accused them of misleading patients over the range of conditions they could treat. He is now campaigning for a reform of the libel laws and warned yesterday that free debate on scientific issues is being stifled by the fear of legal action.” The Telegraph (19th November 2011)
