Many farmers today are concerned, not only with the increasing cost of conventional drugs, but also with their side-effects and the build-up of resistant strains of bacteria due to the continued and often indiscriminate use of antibiotics. While this book will appeal to the already converted it is hoped that the unprejudiced newcomer will be sufficiently encouraged to investigate this system of medicine and enjoy its undoubted benefits. The aim of the homeopathic approach is to build up the health of the herd and increase the resistance of its individual members to disease, and, in consequence to increase the milk output and quality. Homeopathic remedies are all derived from natural sources and George Macleod outlines the homeopathic approach to the commoner diseases of cattle, omitting only serious injuries and others which are not economic to treat.

This is the second Evidence check report. It examines the Government's policies on the provision of homeopathy through the National Health Service (NHS) and the licensing of homeopathic products by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). This was prompted after a Government response in September 2009 indicated that scientific evidence was not used to formulate the licensing regime operated by the MHRA. This inquiry is an examination of the evidence behind government policies on homeopathy, not an inquiry into homeopathy. The task was to determine whether scientific evidence supports government policies. The Government acknowledges that there is no credible evidence of efficacy for homeopathy however this view has not translated into evidence-based policies. The Committee states that by providing homeopathy on the NHS and allowing MHRA licensing of products which subsequently appear on pharmacy shelves the Government runs the risk of endorsing homeopathy as efficacious. The Committee concludes that homeopathy should not be funded on the NHS and the MHRA should stop licensing homeopathic products
