Science Junkie
Quick, go to the mattresses! Here’s what Doc Kon-igi has to say.

In Italy, when something is simple to carry out, we usually say “facile come bere un bicchiere d’acqua" (as easy as drinking a glass of water).So, treating with homeopathy is as easy as drinking a glass of water. And just as effective.I feel professional and personal anguish for all those people who abandon traditional drug therapies (with all the well documented pros and cons) to rely on a methodology of treatment that border strongly on hocus-pocus. Homeopathy was born in the late 1800s as an alternative therapy to a medical science and a pharmacology who were still in their early days.  Then, it regained its vitality in the mid-50s of last century and the costs for homeopathic remedies’ purchase have reached —in North America alone, around the year 2009— about $ 3.5 billion.Obviously, marketing is ruthless and it appeals to popular credulity, but there is no scientific evidence —except the obvious placebo effect— that the active ingredients, ultra-highly diluted within the water, have any curative effect.So, dear homeopaths, remembering that the World Health Organization has stated  its opinion about the matter:

"We have found no evidence to date that homeopathy would bring any benefit…"

I invite you to raise your glass of Aconitum napellus (diluted 1:1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) and make a toast with me.I’m sure you will understand, all things considered, if I toast with a glass of water.
