This week we look at the history of the Ig Nobel Prize, try to find out (Spoiler alert: without success) why pope Francis thinks rosaries are the best way to defend the church from the "Great Accuser" and bring you a ton of news, including: the Romanian referendum on the inclusion or exclusion of same sex marriage in the constitution, a Hungarian cancer quack who boasts likely made-up qualifications, Hans Rosling's 'Factfulness' to become available for free to Swedish students, hundreds of Spanish scientist appeal to Health Minister for action against 'pseudoscience that kills', Natalie Grams' highly anticipated English book on homeopathy to come out in December, what The Croydon Cat Killer might actually be, Informationsnetzwerk Homöopathie's new cool educational material published, investigation into a possible link between measles cases and health-related budget cuts in Italy. Also, we are sheding some light on how wrong the WHO is for legitimising Traditional Chinese Medicine.
