Fighting the rising threat of anti-science

By Professor Donald Cairns, head of school for pharmacy at Robert Gordon University. Pharmacists need to fight back against the rise in anti-science. We are witnessing a rise in anti-scientific thinking. In America, President Donald Trump has appointed an adviser who denies climate change is caused by human activity. He has also appointed a health adviser who believes vaccines cause conditions such as autism. Here in the UK, leading Conservative politician, Michael Gove, was quoted last year as saying he had “had enough of experts”, simply because the advice he received did not fit with his political views. Meanwhile, large sections of the media regularly publish articles promoting ‘natural’ non-evidence-based therapies, such as homeopathy, acupuncture and massage therapy.
