This page is shameful. People who come here are normally looking for advice to help them deal with their own illness or that of someone in their family. By failing to state straight out that "homoeopathy doesn't work" you are diverting these people away from other treatments that might help them. This is dangerous, even if the sugar pills themselves aren't. This page shakes my confidence in other advice that your site gives. If you aren't prepared to risk offending homoeopaths, what else are you unwilling to tell me? Will you offend drug companies if a treatment turns out to be ineffective?
