Sign Science Babe's AntiHomeopathy Commerce Petition!

here, I quote from recent reporting about a petition to stop major pharmacies from engaging in deceptive commerce aka selling homeopathic remedies as therapies [see 001., below]; then, I embed the Science Babe video [see 002., below]; and finally, I link to the petition [see 003., below]:

001. in "Homeopathic Medicine Isn’t Medicine: Science Babe Swallows 50 Sleep Pills To Prove It" (2014-10-16) we're told [my comments are in unquoted bold]:

"[Chris Weller reports] just by definition alone, homeopathic medicine can’t work. The 18th century idea that heavily diluted medicine helps the body fight its own illness doesn’t stand up to the modern rigors of physics and chemistry [...] the field of homeopathy is widely considered pseudoscience [...] there’s no actual medicine to do the work [...] homeopathic remedies rely on the false scientific notion that water somehow has a 'memory,' and the more you dilute a medicine, the stronger that memory gets and the more potent the medicine becomes [...] to fight this ignorance, Science Babe has started a petition on calling for companies like CVS Health and Walgreens to quit selling homeopathic medicine [...]"; 

hear, hear.

002. the video "You Won't Believe What Happens When Science Babe Swallows 50 Homeopathic Sleeping Pills":
