Homeopathy Efficacy In Action: Burning Stupidity

First up the General Pharmaceutical Council has dropped cases against pharmacies who were/are allegedly advising people to use homeopathic remedies and "vaccines" against serious diseases such as malaria.

This is the exactly the area of most concern when it comes to homeopathic remedies. The remedies themselves aren't any more dangerous than water (because they are aren't usually anything other than water). What danger they do contain is in stopping people from seeking effective treatments or vaccines. Homeopathic remedies won't protect against malaria, ergo your danger of catching malaria is that much higher than if you had taken an ordinary malaria vaccine. It's risking people's lives. It must be countered whereever possible.

Sadly, and secondly, this is not the only ridiculous homeopathic story of the day. David Tredinnick MP (Bosworth, Conservative) suggested homeopathic remedies might help against the swine flu in Parliament yesterday! I mean SERIOUSLY. With MPs like this who needs bankers.

Real is scientific homeopathy. It cures even when Conventional Allopathic Medicine (CAM) fails. Evidence-based modern homeopathy is a nano-medicine bringing big results for everyone

Might be best if you stop referring to them as "remedies" as they have never been proven to be anything of the sort!

I thought remedies was politer than "Bullshit" :)

And thanks for the advice Nancy, I'll take it with a salt 6c.

Evidence of homeopathy is undeniably positive and consistent. It's a human evidence of experience, gathered from a real-world observation in a real-world setting (not in an ideal artificial laboratory) giving real-world solutions.
