-- Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) has been a target of attack through WIkipedia, world’s most popular online encyclopedia. A handful of skeptical editors continue to spread misinformation about CAM therapies by constantly editing Wiki content.
To counter this misinformation, Hpathy.com, world’s leading homeopathy portal, has announced a parallel wiki project at www.wiki4cam.org , on 9th Aug. 2008.
According to Dr. Manish Bhatia, Director of Hpathy.com, nearly all CAM articles on Wikipedia are heavily biased against CAM therapies. Everything that does not fall into the realm of modern medicine has been labeled as pseudo-scientific or unscientific at Wiikipedia.
WIkipedia is among the top 10 websites globally. Through it millions of people who use internet to search for alternative medicine are being systematically exposed to anti-CAM data. At the time when the world is rushing towards alternative medicine, the effort to sabotage the alternative medicine cannot be ignored.
To counter this misinformation, the alternative medicine community needed a place where it can build its own knowledge base without the undue interference of skeptics. It needed a place where the CAM practitioners themselves write articles and create a true picture of its history, development, efficacy and positive research.
To ensure that the alternative medicines is not discredited or disputed unfairly and to create a true encyclopedia for Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM), Hpathy.com, world’s leading homeopathy portal, has announced a new parallel wiki project at www.wiki4cam.org
This new wiki will be open only to the practitioners of CAM therapies and will challenge all the skeptical views about CAM by building up an exhaustive database of information about Alternative Medicine.
