Food for the Brain still describing Holford as a Teesside Visiting Professor

Teesside University previously gave Patrick Holford a Visiting Professor post – which, we believe, has now ended. However, the charity Food for the Brain (CEO: P. Holford) are currently referring to Holford as

Visiting Professor at the University of `Teesside, School of Social Sciences and Law

Holford, Burne and homeopathy on the NHS

Dore and some interesting wikipedia edits

Looking at the Wikipedia page for Dore, we were interested to note that IP address 82.70.115.233 was associated with a number of edits to this page. Some of these changes – such as a 31/12/09 edit – seem to make the Wikipedia page more positive about the Dore treatment. Whois information links this IP to a Dave Harris. By a pure coincidence, I’m sure, a Dave Harris happens to be Dore’s Senior Systems Engineer.

I do like wikipedia.
