Scientists attack Charles for becoming Faculty of Homeopathy patron (The Times)

The Prince of Wales has been accused of using his royal position to promote disproven and dangerous treatments after Britain’s Faculty of Homeopathy announced it had made him a patron.

Scientists and campaigners said it was “obscene” that the heir to the throne had accepted a formal role at the organisation, despite there being no credible evidence that homeopathy offers any medical benefit.

Announcing the appointment, Britain’s leading professional body for homeopaths said that it was an “enormous honour” for Prince Charles to take up a position with the organisation, which is celebrating its 175th anniversary.
