If Homeopathy worked, there would be dozens of Pharmaceutical companies falling over each other to develop the most potent dilutions, so they could patent them and make their billions. I challenge all readers to find me one such example. The problem is that Pharmaceutical companies have to prove the effectiveness of their new products to governing authorities to have them accepted and paid for. If Homeopathy worked this would be a sure thing, but you will find it cannot be proven by properly randomised large scale double blind clinical trials of the like employed in reputable pharmaceuticals. And that’s because Homeopathy is a pseudoscience (I used the term in the strictest pejorative) practiced by well-meaning, mislead and Machiavellian quacks alike, and consumed by the fanciful, ignorant and vulnerable.
