Homeopathy and quackery.

Respectful Insolence pointed towards another scientific review of homeopathy. While there's a certain case that can be made for homeopathy being better for people than medical cures at the time of origin, that has long since changed. Double blind studies, revew of patient files rather than anecdotal evidence and more shows the homeopathy just doesn't work. It's popular, but as more than one mother has said, "Would you jump over a cliff because your friends are doing so?" Evidently more than one person would. But that doesn't change the fact that homeopathy just doesn't work. This isn't the only study showing that, just one of the latest.
