This pisses me off. It's preying on the ignorant--aparantly a profitable business model. What an embarrassment to our society that we allow this to go on.
I'm struggling with homeopathy with my wife at the moment.... I insist it's complete hokum, and she agrees, and then she buys it anyway because it makes her feel better.
Also, from wikipedia:
Has a 60% probability of containing one molecule of original substance if one mole of the original substance was used.
The dilution is so great that there are no traces of the “active” ingredients remaining. Explained here with humor.
Homeopathy is given credit when in fact people would be cured with or without it. People will give credit to all sorts of false causes. So at best it is a placebo when it 'works' for mild illnesses and it is dangerous when it doesn't for serious illnesses. Homeopathy is just one big logical fallacy, it's the classic post-hoc fallacy.
If homeopathy worked, wouldn't sea water cure everything?
I found a website that is called "How does homeopathy work" Here is the link
