Homeopathic Treatment for Pigfluenza. Bwahahaha!

This is just too funny.

The misguided loons over at Homeopathy Plus are preparing to tout their magic memory water as a cure for . . . Swine Flu!

... we are working with homeopaths around the world to crossmatch the swine flu symptoms with the homeopathic remedies that will best treat and prevent them.

But never fear, because

... your existing bottle of Flu-Stop still contains the most common remedies used by homeopaths for the treatment and prevention of flu.

Phew, that's a relief. Your existing bottle of magic water will still work until you can get a special replacement bottle of magic water.

Of course, the new Swine Flu remedy will be identical to Flu Stop, because they'll both be just water.

So what is the delay all about? All they need to do is slap a sticker on the "Flu Stop" bottles to make them "SWINE Flu Stop".

But maybe that's not enough.

After all, what font should they use for the sticker? Should they include a picture of a pig? Should the pig be wearing a top hat?

So many decisions. And so little time!

Hurry, homeopaths of the world. We need you!

Surely they can be prosecuted for this shit?

Hi Sean.
If they start marketing a treatment for Swine Flu then yes, the TGA could be on to them
I'm pretty sure Richard Saunders has already reported the Homeopathy Plus website to the TGA though, and they're yet to do anything about it.
