In reply: Wardle’s letter raises several points that deserve comment. Wardle calls me dogmatic, misinformed and antihomeopathic. Such ad hominem attacks hardly promote a rational debate. When I started my job of scrutinising homeopathy 17 years ago, I was pro-homeopathy1 — I once worked in a German homeopathic hospital — and became more sceptical as the evidence base for homeopathy became more clearly negative.2 This, it seems to me, is the opposite of dogmatic.
