Traditional Knowledge Digital Library (TKDL): A collaboration with the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), set up in 2001, to prevent grant of "bed" patents on traditional knowledge and biopiracy. The digital library is being developed on codified traditional knowledge on Indian systems of medicines such as Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha and Yoga. Nearly 805,000 Ayurvedic formulations, 98,700 Unani
formulations, and 9,970 Sidha formulations have been transcribed in patent application format in five languages: English, French, German, Spanish and Japanese.[4]

Criticism[edit] There is a strong consensus among the scientific community that homeopathy, naturopathy et al are nothing more than placebo.[5][6][7] References[edit]
