Can a blog force a university to close a degree course? David Colquhoun, the University College London pharmacology professor behind the "Improbable science" blog would like to think so. Since 2003, Colquhoun has used his blog, along with freedom of information requests, to draw attention to universities running courses in complementary and alternative medicine (Cam). He argues that the treatments are unproven, degree courses unscientific, and universities wrong to award students bachelor's or master's of science qualifications.

"It's particularly offensive that they're called BSc," he says. "You have to address the question: 'Is it worth lying to patients to get that placebo effect?'.

If the results show, then why not?

If those courses are based on science, then obviously a Bachelor of Science degree should be offered.

Sure it is worth lying to patients. A placebo is sometimes the best medicine, and has no side effects other than giving patients some hope.
