Owen Flatley's letter mocking homeopathy is arrant nonsense. His preference to be treated by a doctor from 2010 instead of 1807 overlooks the fact that Western medicine is a relatively new and exploratory form of medicine compared to acupuncture and Chinese medicine and homeopathy Lillian Van Eycken has helped thousands of people, but most ...

I think the problem is that most people enter studying medicine with an ulterior motive to earn a lot of money or for the social status. Not because of a natural interest in health. The people I went to school with who ended up vein doctors certainly went in it for the money anyway and made no efforts to keep that quiet even!
Good luck with finding a good homeopath
Heaven forbid we REWARD the best and the brightest pursue a terribly hard career that requires ridiculous hours and some pretty disgusting tasks.

The REAL question is why people think that con artists like homeopaths deserve any money at all.

Meanwhile Fbomb is here claiming that no vaccine has ever helped anyone, and that all vaccines cause the illnesses they protect against.
That's why when everyone got the small pox vaccine, everyone in the world died and small pox is still around today.
Oh shit, right, that's the opposite of what happened.
See what I mean? Buttcrack rants and talks jibberish. Accusesw everyone of this and that. Needs psychiatric help.

Yawn.

Yes, medicine, like car manufacturing, food preparation, swimming lessons and everything else in the world is imperfect.

Your claim viruses didn't exist until vaccines were created to fight them is still simply childish.

Yeah because "science" hasn't provided nearly as much as your fantasy has it?

Homeopathic leak threatens catastrophe

An accidental release of highly dilute homeopathic waste from a research institute in Swindon has led to calls for the centre to be shut down. Plant operators have admitted responsibility for massive safety blunders after a spilled drop of an enormously dilute test product was cleaned by a caretaker, and in complete disregard of all safety procedures, allowed to enter the water system after he emptied his mop bucket down the drain.

Institute staff have been cooperating with homeopathy regulatory safety officers and a team of engineers from Thames Water – working around the clock to minimise the risk of further dilution.

Still, the plant remains open – a spokesman claimed that their pioneering research into a cure for mild feelings of insecurity has reached a point that it must not be stopped. He then locked himself in his office and told reporters to leave him alone.

Local reaction has been mixed – many of course are living in fear – the latest advice has been for locals not to wash their vegetables before cooking. Some demand the plant be closed down. But others have taken a more pragmatic view, and accept that sometimes great advances in medical pseudoscience can come at a heavy price.

But everyone is in agreement that the emergency workers who came to the aid of the stricken plant yesterday are the true heroes. Some firefighers may have been exposed to dilutions as high as D8000 during the frantic race to prevent the atomic memory of the waste from reaching the Thames. Next to the Plant are seven abandoned Fire Engines – exposed to such dangerously low concentrations of homeopathic contamination that they can never be used again – they will eventually be entombed in concrete where they lie.

Local Fire Chief, Boutros-Boutros Jones gave a frank account of the current situation; ‘We have to accept that we’ve lost the battle locally, two water treatment works may never be safe to use again, but the fight to contain this and prevent further dilution is still on. Clearly if this reaches the sea, it’s game over.’

So? What's your point? Funny you don't give vaccines this level of critique. Shows you're not too discerning.

Just my opinion !!!

Actually, this shows you don't know the first thing about satire.

The whole point of his post is to lampoon the fact that homeopaths claim that the more dilute something is the more powerful it becomes.

As such, if one drop of anything were to accidentally fall in the ocean, the oceans would become super powerful medicines.

Well, you are half right.

If more people used this type of medical therapy, there wouldn't be so many people. Period.

How is it nonsense?

The homeopaths clearly state that the less of something you have the more powerful it becomes.

If one drop of medicine were to accidentally get into the water supply, all the water one Earth would become super powerful medicine.

No homeopath has ever presented a method for counteracting the principle, therefore once it gets started -- it's game over.
