Martin Robbins

What's the talk about?

Martin Robbins runs the successful Lay Science blog and has written many articles for the Guardian on the 10:23 campaign and how the Homeopathic Association misrepresented its evidence presented to the parliamentary Science and technology sub committee on Homeopathy.

In this talk Martin will give us a more global view of homeopathy, crackpots abroad and Bad Science in the developing world.

He will cover Homeopaths in Haiti and Africa, AIDS denialism, how alt med props up the Cuban healthcare system, anti-vaccination movements in Africa and Asia, dodgy bomb-detectors, and a plethora of other stories about quacks amok in the third world.
