Homeopathy per HCSTC 2010 - "Placebo" and "Implausible":

DC's Improbable Science blogs in "MPs Urge Government to Stop NHS Funding and MHRA Licensing of Homeopathy"(2010-02-22):

"the [House of Commons] Science and Technology Committee concludes that the NHS should cease funding homeopathy [...] as they are not medicines, homeopathic products should no longer be licensed by the MHRA [...] the Committee concurred with the Government that the evidence base shows that homeopathy is not efficacious (that is, it does not work beyond the placebo effect) and that explanations for why homeopathy would work are scientifically implausible."

Note: yes, yes, yes.  Meanwhile, North American naturopathy labels homeopathy a "clinical science".  For course, naturopathy is famous for its irrationality / absurdity.
