I encounter this word in the reading “Extreme bias at Wikipedia on homeopathic medicine” by Dana Ullman. The word is found in this sentence, “After reading the below body of scientific evidence on the subject of homeopathic medicine, I hope that we can engage in a dialogue that will help reduce the amount of misinformation that pervades certain subjects, such as homeopathy.” Without knowing the definition of this word, I couldn’t understand what this article is about. Now I understand it is a system for treating illnesses.
