Eppur si muove

Things I Think About, by Peter Bowditch

Does homeopathy work?

Australia’s National Health and Medical Research Council has had a look at the uses of homeopathy to treat various medical conditions. The result: don’t waste your money, it does nothing.

A draft of the report has been released for public discussion. You can read it here.

People have until May 26 to comment on it before it is released as an official Information Paper. Details about the comment process together with some background information can be found at the NH&MRC web site

Please remember that this is only a draft, and NH&MRC will probably be inundated with complaints, anecdotes and appeals to antiquity (and possibly even threats of legal action) in defence of this absurd quackery. Think about making a submission in favour of the Information Paper to show you care.
