Here’s a great site (and pretty too) that breaks down just how insanely stupid homeopathy is. The name of the site is a play on words (I’ll leave it up to you to figure it out).
My favorite section out of the site that sums it up nicely for me:
9. It detracts from real medicine
Giving legitimacy to unproven – or rather, proven to be ineffective – treatments does not come without a cost. The cost of allowing the promotion of homeopathy as an ‘alternative’ to real medicine comes where patients are unable to distinguish between a harmless which will cure itself given time, and a more serious illness which will become life-threatening if incorrectly untreated. Stories of people abandoning real medicine in favour of quack cures, with disastrous results, are not hard to find . By allowing the promotion of a therapy proven to be both ineffective and entirely implausible, we encourage people to turn their back on the treatments that can help them, in favour of quackery.
And that’s the real cost right there. Distracting people from real medicine with promises of fairy dust and magic. Meh.
