Science is better than superstition

09 November, 2017

• HOMEOPATHY can only ever benefit via a placebo affect as they are so diluted they contain none of the supposed ingredients.

Believe if you like but our NHS must be guided by science, money spent on sugar pills is not available for real treatments, and despite the easy denigration of “big pharma” it’s genuine medical research that drives life expectancy higher through new drugs, advanced scanning, improved forms of treatment and surgery.

It’s scientific method versus superstition; herbal remedy enthusiasts do at least have a product that might work but don’t be blind to the money angle here.

In the United States they are sold via sales techniques bordering on Ponzi schemes leaving a lot of people with a stake in talking up supposed benefits as top executives become billionaires.
