The Facts about Homeopathy January 23, 2012

Posted by Ian in Pseudoscience.

I was shocked to see a recent UMR pole suggesting that 51% of people think homeopathy is “scientifically proven” [source].  I’d expect a number like that if the question was something like “can have a positive effect” but “scientifically proven” is much more concerning.

In the interest of making the reality more widely known, in this post I’d like to clarify some of the facts about homeopathy in case anyone reading this isn’t aware.  This post is not about whether it works or not (although in my opinion it is nonsense) but simply to clarify what it actually is.
