Homeopathy enthusiasts make more diluted baseless claims

Posted in Skepdude by Skepdude on March 25, 2009

Homeopathy Shows Promise in the Treatment of HIV Infections” boasts the title. I must say, I am intrigued. What new developments have there been in the world of homeopathy to warrant such a title? It turns out nothing. The author offers nothing whatsoever except for baseless, unsupported claims, such as:

Some older and some recent initial studies are showing that homeopathy is an effective treatment alternative for Acquired Immune Deficiency.

Homeopathy also has a history of successful treatment of various serious influenza outbreaks and other viral diseases.

More later on the actual studies and individuals, homeopaths from Israel, England,  India and Holland who are leading the way in this non-toxic, inexpensive treatment choice.

You’d think the minimum the author could have done is link to one of these recent studies, but alas we must wait for “more later on the actual studies”. My bullshit-o-meter is going crazy!
