Homeopathy – a chronic social disease?

18 08 2008

I hate that people just aren’t aware of how much a sham homeopathy is.

At the start of the year I remember being shocked that there was actually a whole week devoted to this voodoo medicine.

Then, recently at an interview selection activity for a science related government department, I was actually facing off against someone who actually believed in this stuff.

This isn’t about the establishment. This isn’t about big pharma having its way. It’s about the inanity and demonstrated innefficacy of the idea that should have been derailed decades ago.

Why does it persist?

Here is a good article by Ben Goldacre (Bad Science) that will help shed more light on the issue.
