Saturday, December 9, 2017 & RCVS: Homeopathy is "Not Based on Sound Scientific Principles"

here, bad news for homeopathy continues, as it should:

001., in "Homeopathy 'Not Based on Sound Scientific Principles' Vet Body Declares"  (2017-12-07) we're told:

"Britain’s Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons position on homeopathy is that it is 'not based on sound scientific principles' [...] the RCVS said [...] 'it is vital to protect the welfare of animals committed to the care of the veterinary profession and the public’s confidence in the profession that any treatments not underpinned by a recognised evidence base or sound scientific principles do not delay or replace those that do [...] we would like to highlight our commitment to promoting the advancement of veterinary medicine on sound scientific principles and to reiterate the fundamental obligation on our members as practitioners within a science-based profession, which is to make animal welfare their first consideration [...] in fulfilling this obligation, we expect treatments offered by veterinary surgeons are underpinned by a recognised evidence base or sound scientific principles. Veterinary surgeons should not make unproven claims about any treatments, including prophylactic treatments [...] homeopathy exists without a recognised body of evidence for its use. Furthermore, it is not based on sound scientific principles' [...]";

hear, hear.

002. meanwhile, organized North American naturopathy -- which treats PEOPLE -- states:

002.a. that homeopathy is a "medicinal science", perpetually, in "Zicam is NOT Homeopathy!":

"homeopathy is a 200 year-old medicinal science."

that's bullshit.

002.b. and falsely claims on the North American ND board exam NPLEX, perpetually, that homepathy is a "clinical science."

I would think we'd want to treat people at least as well as animals.
