Are Homeopathic Remedies Fraudulent?
Homeopathic remedies are fraudulent.
Homeopathy outright ignores all known science, rendering all of its claims fraudulent.
Homepathic substances are in practice placebos that are explicitly marketed as active, non-placebo substances. This is fundamentally fraudulent.
Proponents of homeopathy claim that greater dilutions (lower concentration) of supposed active ingredients produce stronger effects. Medical science has shown the opposite: that responses are correlated to dosages.
Homeopathy is ineffective, yet proponents advocate it as a treatment for life-threatening diseases including cancer.
A positive unreasonable belief, otherwise known as placebo, was found effective and even superior to modern medicine in some rare cases.
The doctors can instruct patients about the medicine being homeopathic. In some countries, there is a law for it. If a patient knows he buys an overpriced sugar pill and buys it of his own will, it is not fraud.
Should public health systems fund homeopathy?
Should Doctors Be Allowed To Remove Healthy Body Parts To Replace With Artificial Ones?
Should medical research embrace racial differences in treatment efficacy?
