Personally I find homeopathy offensive, I guess that is a broad brush but I am talking about the dilute form of homeopathy. It is shameful that
tax payers have to subsidise millions of pounds/dollars of public money to fund this sham and to
fund homeopathic hospitals. Furthermore it is absolutely disgusting that this industry, one which has direct impact on a persons health and life, is
poorly regulated if regulated at all. So much to the effect that some homeopaths are playing roulette with peoples health and safety
offering alternative vaccines for children and adults which is even condemned by the Faculty
So sure, if you believe in these treatments then more power to you, that's fine I hope you continue to reap the benfits of the placebo effect. But
public funding for this has to stop!
You should not be able to walk into a pharmacy and have these treatments even in the same shop, this has to stop too. Governments need to get off
there backsides and save taxpayer money, introduce a strict regulatory body and be honest with it's people.
This was an episode of Horizon titled 'the test'. Basically sceptic James Randi is so convinced that homeopathy will not work, that he has offered
$1m to anyone who can provide convincing evidence of its effects.
It was very interesting watch.
There was another show that was good but I can't find it.
