France to stop reimbursing homeopathic treatments

The reason is pretty simple: there’s no evidence that it works.

Homeopathy is ineffective against children’s cold and flu

Captain Obvious to the rescue!

CDC: Homeopathic “healing bracelet” dramatically increases lead levels in babies’ blood

You know how you call alternative medicine that works? Medicine.

British National Health Service (NHS) to stop prescribing homeopathy, other “low value” treatments

There’s some good news, and some bad news.

Guess what? Homeopathy doesn’t work on cows, either

I wish people would stop trying to milk homeopathy already.

Homeopathic products will be labeled as bogus unless there’s scientific proof that they work

Maybe they’ll wiggle out of it by printing with ink diluted 1000 times to make it more effective.

Completely useless: Homeopathy no better than placebo, study confirms

While there is a full scientific consensus that homeopathy is a pseudoscience many people still believe in it.

Homeopathy conference ends in chaos after everyone gets high on hallucinogenic drug

Almost 30 delegates were rushed to a hospital in Germany, suffering from hallucinations and cramps. The “alternative medicine conference” went astray when delegates took a hallucinogenic drug somewhat related to LSD (2C-E – Aquarust in Germany).

Homeopathy doesn’t treat any health condition, most comprehensive study to date finds

Homeopathy = placebo, extensive study concludes

Homeopathy is bust, it doesn’t really do anything, it’s just a make-believe treatment. Why do I have to write another article debunking it? Well, because people still buy it. People are still tricked by non-medics non-scientists into using “treatments” which are just a placebo. Homeopathy lacks biological plausibility and the axioms of homeopathy have been refuted for some time; and guess what

The most absurd explanation you’ll hear today

Well, the talk is on homeopathy, but this is really not about homeopathy. It’s about the “physics” explanation, and how it manages to be so absurd that it basically urinates on pretty much modern science in just 5 minutes (which is quite an achievement, truth be told). With no disrespect, how she got the “Dr.” title is beyond me, and
