Really, present me with the double blind study which confirmed this.
The Spanish Flu fatality rate in the US was about 3%.
If a homeopathic doctor saw 50 patients, we'd expect that 1-2 would die. That doesn't mean that the doctor saved 48 patients.
It means that the fatality rate was 3%.
Look, I'll make this very simple for you-
The process by which you manufacture homeopathic material CONTRADICTS the way you take the same material.
In other words, if ONE is correct, the other must be false.
You can no produce homeopathic material using dilution AND take homeopathic cures orally.

Wow, what a well thought out response to the facts I presented.

You made a claim - that the common flu was fatal 60% of the time.
I pointed out that the deadliest flu in recorded history, the Spanish Flu, had a fatality rate of 3% of the real world and 6% in places like India where "washing" is uncommon and where cows crapping where you produce your food is considered lucky.

And that's your response?

No wonder you fall for crap like homeopathy

So what is so special in allopathic drugs
If you do not understand the basic principles of evidence based medicine and pharmaceutical trials then please go back to university and study science based medicine so you can legitimately claim the title 'Dr'.

I am not surprised that Australia has so many Indian doctors. These are the real doctors who understand biology, chemistry, etc and are escaping the psuedoscientific nonsense of homeopathy and ayurvedic being peddled and supported by ignorant and/or corrupt politcians in India.
