Five Stupid Things About Homeopathy

i think that homeopathy is dangerous and i agree with you that it should be illegal but even if it was illegal there would still be charlatons convincing desperate people to hand over their hard earned cash for a product which could cause more harm than good.corey donaldson

In the Netherlands, as of july 1 this year (thus predating your video), a ban came into effect which means that - like actual medicines - homeopathic concoctions could no longer be sold using unsubstantiated claims.

Which means that any reference to the condition - whatever that condition is/was - for which the stuff was intended as a cure is illegal. ANY reference on or with the product, be it on the label, the box or that sheet of gobbledegook put in the box.

This is really amusing because - obviously - now when gullible people want a homeopathic 'medicine' they either have to know (look up somewhere) exactly what to get or ask the staff - who don't have a clue because they are not capable of anything beyond re-stocking and operating the checkout.


Just one example of old versus new packaging; have fun figuring out what the heck it's supposed to treat.
