HOMEOPATHY - House of Commons Science and Technology Committee
54. We conclude that the principle of like-cures-like is theoretically weak. It fails to provide a credible physiological mode of action for homeopathic products. We note that this is the settled view of medical science. [...]
61. We consider the notion that ultra-dilutions can maintain an imprint of substances
previously dissolved in them to be scientifically implausible. [...]
70. In our view, the systematic reviews and meta-analyses conclusively demonstrate that homeopathic products perform no better than placebos.
110.[...]The Government should stop allowing the funding of homeopathy on the NHS.
111. We conclude that placebos should not be routinely prescribed on the NHS. The funding of homeopathic hospitals—hospitals that specialise in the administration of placebos—should not continue, and NHS doctors should not refer patients to homeopaths.
Strangely enough, sometimes it takes scores of scientists to convince you that gin and tonic with only the memory of gin molecules won't get you drunk. If still unconvinced, try taking the holistic approach to getting the car to run on 'memory of gasoline molecules'.
