Ontario is Aiding and Abetting Homeopathy Quackery - Globe and Mail

here, some snippets from a recent Ontario Globe and Mail article:

001. AndrĂ© Picard writes in "We’re Aiding and Abetting Homeopathic Quackery" (2015-03-31):

"there is no scientific case for homeopathy. It is undiluted quackery [...] the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council has just published what is probably the most thorough and detailed investigation of homeopathy since it was conceived by Samuel Hahnemann in the late 18th century.  The conclusion of that blue-ribbon panel is as definitive as it is damning: 'there are no conditions for which there is reliable evidence that homeopathy is effective.' None. The effect homeopathic remedies have, if any, is that of a placebo [...] homeopathy is not evidence-based. It should be marginalized, not embraced. There is no excuse for pandering to the deluded by diluting our ethics, standards and public policies"; 

hear, hear.
