The total nonsense of Homeopathy
    #5117517 - 12/29/05 03:03 AM (16 years, 25 days ago)

These practitioners would have you believe something that any intelligent person can see makes absolutely no sense.

Let's take white willow bark (the precursor to aspirin) as an example.

Let's say that it takes one thousand milligrams of extract to affect a headache. We also know that taking nothing will have no effect. So now we have set the upper and lower limits.

500 milligrams will have much less of an effect.

250 milligrams even less.

100 milligrams even less.

50 milligrams even less.

25 milligrams even less.

10 milligrams even less.

5 milligrams even less.

1 milligram even less.

0.1 milligram even less.

0.01 milligram way less.

0.0001 milligrams much less still.

0.000001 milligrams no noticable effect.

0.000000001 milligrams: HUGE HOMEOPATHIC SPIKE IN EFFICACY!

0.000000000: absolutely no effect

Picture that on a graph for you visual types. That, in a nutshell, exposes the total illogic behind this pseudo-science.

i myself have not used homeopathy but i have given some remedies to my dog, he suffers from dermatitis, real nasty ear infection both that he has suffered for some years of his life, now after the use of the remedies all has dissapeared, nothing in my dogs routine has changed, except the addition of the remedy.

i think you forgot the fact that it still works better than placebo.....

not that it proves anything, but it seems to be all the convincing modern health science needs to legalize and sell something....

Cut his food intake to 1 milligram per day. Let me know how much weight he gains.

im no homeopathic expert, but i think the whole idea behind it is that there is some "imprint" on water from it.

Anyone who believes in homeopathy might as well shoot themselves in the head...because they aren't using their brain anyways.

I bet they would also believe having less brains makes you smarter. :lol:

I guess there's no point making all that flu vaccine. Just dilute one dose in a billion liters of water and the pandemic is over.

I wonder if I can be charged with murder if I use homeopathic cyanide on my ex as there will be no traces of poison...

ive never gotten the flu, and never had the flu vaccine.

DUH! No, because homeopathic cyanide wouldn't kill her in the first place.

Homeopathy is b/s. I think all of us who have an IQ higher than that of a rock can agree on that.

would you consider the media induced scare regarding the flu to have a placebo type effect?
