Great opinion piece by Martin Robbins in the January 30 New Scientist, "Overdosing on nothing", which takes an intelligent, rational approach to the problem of homeopathy. I agree with the argument put forth, which I think can be condensed to 3 salient points:
- The "logic" of homeopathic remedies is severely flawed.
- Double-blind studies of homeopathic remedies show they are no more effective than placebo.
- There is a danger in perpetuating the idea that homeopath is equivalent to modern medicine, especially when people delay seeking appropriate treatment.
