I applaud the recent update which states in no uncertain terms that there is no evidence for homeopathy having any effect beyond placebo. Nor is there any evidence that anyone can tell the difference between unlabelled placebo and homeopathic remedies. Indeed, after a certain amount of dilation it is not possible to tell homeopathic remedies apart from each other, nor say a 30C from a 200C, for example. It is merely a matter of fact that homeopathy has not been demonstrated to work. No, not even in children or animals. It is also merely a matter of fact that there is no plausible mechanism for homeopathy to work. This update, which more accurately reflects these facts is much better. The page is apparently now freed from DoH micromanagement and gutting, and released from the tentacles of Prince Charles' quack charity meddling. NHS Choices are now talking sense about homeopathy and this is now an evidence based page. Good. Keep it that way.
