Homeopath and wife jailed over fatal neglect of their baby

A truly sad story of neglect of a child by her mother and homeopath father has come to some sort of conclusion this week, with the jailing of the neglectful parents for a number of years. This story is of particular interest to skeptics because the father chose to treat his daughter for severe eczema using homeopathy. This resulted in her condition getting so bad that she eventually died. At the same time, the parents chose to use conventional treatment for the mother’s gallstones.

As a side story to the above, The Australian newspaper interviewed Eran Segev about private health funds paying for homeopathy. That story can be read here.
