ERNST, Department of Complementary Medicine, Postgraduate Medical School, University of Exeter, UK reviews (22 references) the risks posed by homoeopathy. The author writes that it is often assumed that homoeopathy, even though possibly ineffective, is free of risks. This notion is questioned in this review, where side-effects and complications associated with homoeopathic treatment have been published in the literature. The author further states that the question of whether the homoeopath is risk-free in all cases needs discussion. The attitude of certain homoeopaths towards immunisation is quoted as an example of particular concern. The author states that on the basis of these data the notion of totally risk-free homoeopathy is untenable.
