Keir Liddle at theconversation.com: Homeopathy is the "Air Guitar of Medicine"

here, a label upon homeopathy I haven't heard before:

001. Keir Liddle writes at theconversation.com, in "Why Homeopathy Must Not Gain a Foothold in the UK" (2015-09-18):

"a lack of scientific grounding: it should not be a shock to learn that homeopathy has no basis in scientific fact [...] peruse Edzard Ernst’s systematic review of the practice [...and] homeopaths have gone to incredible lengths to avoid having their air guitar of medicine tested in any rigorous fashion [...and] despite the NHS stating that 'homeopathy performs no better than placebos', support for the practice still prevails [...and] far from being harmless, a belief in the magical powers of water’s memory can seriously damage your health [...]";


hear, hear.
