Quotes

Taree pharmacist Ian Carr said he had never stocked homeopathic products and hoped his colleagues would follow suit. "I, personally, think that the professionalism of pharmacy is threatened by the selling of non-evidence based products" he said
...  One of his patients had died the previous evening, and he was at a loss:  "Her numbers were all OK, I just don't understand it."   In deference to his mental state, I refrained from replying, "Did you think death was optional?"
"A healthy environment will rebuild itself after a storm," Hooper-Bui says. "We know that from Isaac – a compromised eco-system is of concern. The plants might look o.k. but the insects are constantly fumigated when the water is not on the marsh (due to north wind or low tides) and the temperatures are high – when sediment is exposed – the volatile compounds come off the marsh and fumigate the insects and they die – we have results for three years to show that, in the field and in the lab."
...vice president for research, said. "Their work at the frontiers of bioscience, bioengineering and medicine holds the potential for transforming the way we provide care for children in need. The Hartwell support is unique, because it funds daring innovators and projects that would not find support at more traditional funding agencies at this stage."
