FDA counters Skeptic claims on Homeopathy
It is now time to be completely confused about homeopathy.
Having been bored to tears by the skeptic propaganda on homeopathy (It doesn’t work; Ineffective treatments; false hope; just sugar solution; no active ingredient because it is so diluted etc. etc. yawn), and while the Australian Government were saying it was ineffective, we’ve seen the Swiss Government give it the thumbs up, it seems Big Pharma may be trying a different tack to stop a growing threat to its business.
The FDA has now announced that homeopathy is so effective it could be dangerous and so must be regulated. On 19th March the FDA published a safety alert on Asthma Homeopathic medications (http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/SafetyInformation/SafetyAlertsforHumanMedicalProducts/ucm439014.htm)
And it is URGENT – a meeting in three weeks (anytime now) and a decision!
Part of the argument is that companies produced and sold homeopathic remedies and that was OK when there were just a few homeopaths in America. But now there are many, it is getting out of control and lots of people are being prescribed these dangerous treatments. No, seriously.

How could the skeptics get it so wrong?
