Homeopath Causes Death of Daughter [AU]:

Australia's Daily Telegraph reports, in "Homeopath Thomas Sam Guilty of Daughter Gloria's Death":

"Gloria Thomas's parents have been found guilty of manslaughter by failing to get her conventional medical care before she died from an infection caused by chronic eczema [...] Mr. Sam, a homeopath, and his wife were accused of breaching their duty of care as parents to 9-month-old Gloria in the days before her death in May 2002 [...] the Crown successfully argued the couple were criminally negligent by persisting with homeopathic remedies to treat their daughter's eczema instead of seeking conventional medical help in the last two weeks of her life."

Note: obviously homeopathy, in all its bogosity / stupidity, can kill.
