While in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago I read an article about homeopathy and the flu. I know some people can be skeptical about homeopathy, but Sonya McLeod makes some interesting points. I can’t vouch for the studies she cites because I haven’t read them, but her arguments are compelling.
Tonight I found out my university is officially not letting professors dock grades for absences because they don’t want any students to feel that they have to come to class if they have symptoms of H1N1. Additionally, professors can require students to leave class if they look sick. Wowza.
I don’t know whether to think they’re being paranoid or to be glad they’re taking H1N1 seriously. Either way, it makes for some good public health talk!
