Homeopathy 'proven' effective

New regulations came into force on 1st September 2006 allowing homeopathic remedies to be marketed alongside conventional medicines as proven effective. You can read about it here.

The concept that homeopathic medicine should be considered on a par with scientifically tested and proven efficacious 'conventional' medicine is simply absurd.

Homeopathy has been proved to have no more efficacy than placebo (i.e. none at all) and has a theoretical basis which is nothing more than medieval superstition.

What will we have next - Galen's four humours based medicine? Witch doctors chewing sacred grasses? Utterly ridiculous.
