Comment 6 by OHooligan :

And what's wrong with homoeoeoeopathy (love those o-e-o-e-o bits) anyway? It's great. It's the only medicine that has absolutely no side effects. Nearly as good as placebos, and a lot easier to get hold of. (Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a pharmacy that stocks placebos? Or a doctor willing to prescribe them?). I suppose I could buy my placebos online, but how can I be sure I won't get scammed with some rubbish that doesn't work?

Not quite. Homeopathy is dangerous quackery... In homeopathy there's something called a nosode... Nosodes are remedies made from diseased or pathological products of disease such as fecal matter, blood or bodily discharges. They can make you very sick not to mention they have no benefit whatsoever in terms of curing an ailment.

It's just dangerous quackery no matter how you look at it.
