Homeopathy is one of the biggest scams ever wrought upon a gullible public.
Here’s the thing: a homeopathic preparation is nothing more than water.
It's just water.
Supposedly the water retains the ‘memory’ of something or other diluted in it, but by the time you’re shelling out your money it’s been diluted so much that there’s nothing there anymore.
It’s just water.
I'm amazed anyone has the gall to charge so much money for this stuff. I'm only slight less amazed that people actually pay so much money for this stuff.
No study has ever shown homeopathy to have any effect beyond that of a simple placebo. Which is hardly surprising.
After all, it’s just water.
So imagine my surprise when I was in my local vet’s this afternoon, and they have on their shelf something called “Homeo-Pet”.
Yes. Homeopathic treatments for pets. At $37 a bottle.
I get that a placebo might work on humans. I do. But on animals? On dogs and cats?
They’re just not that stupid.
