British Homeopathic Association: Homeopathy Awareness Week
Every year between 14-21 June we encourage people to raise awareness about homeopathy.
Fair enough. For the uninitiated, homeopathy is a bogus medical treatment based on impossible, unscientific premises. Its medicinal benefits, such as they are, are indistinguishable from those derived from far cheaper placebo treatments. Homeopathic medicine is, quite literally, sugar pills.
In 2010, the UK parliament’s Science and Technology Select Committee ruled that homeopathy is useless and unethical. When used in place of genuine medicine, it can also be extremely dangerous.
If you are feeling poorly, go and see a proper doctor.
For more on this specious medical practice, please see my numerous earlier posts on homeopathy.
I trust you are all now suitably aware.
Ever wondered just how much bullshit it is possible to cram on to a single sign?
Public Service Announcement: Please choose reality-based therapies.
Talking of homeopathic bullshit (which, if you remember, I recently was):

…Impaza is one of a new generation of medicines using homeopathic doses of antibodies to control the behaviour of certain molecules in the body. It takes effect earlier in the erection process than Viagra, stimulating the production of a gas—nitrogen oxide—in the cells of the penis.
But the really frightening thing about this article is the opening paragraph: “Why is the lion the king of the animals? Because of his tufty tool. And what makes a man really a man? You know perfectly well.”
Just for the record, I do not now have, and never wish to possess, a tufty tool.
Please, for once in your sad, inadequate, gullible lives, listen, you stupid, naïve dupes—homeopathy doesn’t work; homeopathy can’t work because it’s pseudo-scientific bullshit. These charlatans are fobbing you off with snake oil and taking your money. It won’t make your kids any better. You are being irresponsible with their welfare, and if the government really cared as much as it claims to about children, the social services would break into your homes, take away your children, and give them to somebody at least vaguely in touch with reality.
I’m sorry if your children are ill, I really am, but stop pissing about and take them to a doctor.
