Complementary medicines: A 4.2 billion dollar question
On a busy shopping strip on Sydney’s north shore lies a pharmacy where you won’t find a homeopathic product for sale.
The owner, Nick Logan, simply refuses to stock them.
“They’re proven beyond a shadow of a doubt not to work and my customers expect me to not stock bogus products,” says Mr Logan, who was named PSA Pharmacist of the Year in 2009.
“They think I have more integrity than that.”
The question over whether pharmacies should stock products that lack robust evidence is in this spotlight once again.
