Consumer Reports Schwacks Homeopathy

here, more bad news for homeopathy, that pseudotherapeutic:

001. at consumerreports.org, in "The Truth About Homeopathy" (2015-10-22), we're told:

"[by way of Lauren Cooper] head to the drugstore to pick up medication for allergies, insomnia, or migraines, and you might see homeopathic remedies sitting right next to the conventional over-the-counter options [...]";

yes, as if equal.

"there are important differences between the two. OTC drugs contain active ingredients that the Food and Drug Administration has reviewed for safety and effectiveness. Homeopathics are sold without those assurances [...]";

what a honey of a deal.

"homeopathy, a centuries-old form of medicine [...] makes no scientific sense, our experts say. 'The concepts behind homeopathy defy our understanding of the laws of nature,' says Marvin M. Lipman, M.D., Consumer Reports’ chief medical adviser [...]";

yes they do.

"there's no proof homoepathy works [...] this year, after reviewing 176 studies, the National Health and Medical Research Council in Australia found that homeopathics worked no better than placebos, concluding that 'there are no health conditions for which there is reliable evidence that homeopathy is effective' [...]";

another nail in homeopathy's coffin.
