    Homeopathic products 'should carry "no scientific evidence" labels'

    Homeopathic products are 'clearly not' medicines and should
    carry labels warning that there is 'no scientific evidence for

    Attacks on homeopathy risk driving all alternative medicines underground

    Homeopathy, known as a form of alternative medicine, has
    recently been making headlines. The frenzy over homeopathy began
    in response to a lawsuit brought at the Yamaguchi District Court
    in May over the death of an infant. The child died from sepsis
