During the past 15 years, the Hungarian Skeptic Society felt a certain reluctance to criticize the so-called Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), primarily because of its unwillingness to take away the last hope from our unfortunate, sometimes terminally ill fellow beings. This is not, nor has it ever been our goal.

During the weekend the European Council of Skeptical Organisations - ECSO has adopted the Hungarian Skeptic Society as member organization. The decision was made at the 13th European Skeptics Congress in Dublin, where more than 140 delegates from 13 countries discussed the hot topics about pseudoscience, ezotery and the paranormal.

We launched a lecture and debate series for the Skeptic Society members about the current topics in science and skepticism. The first lecture was held by Ernő Duda, president of Solvo Biotechnology Rt. and member of Board of the Hungarian Biotechnology Association about the history, recent developments and future of green, white and red biotechnology. According to Duda genetical engineering opens extraordinary new possibilities in helthcare, but it will also raise rather difficult social questions.
