A UK parliment committee is currently preparing a report
about the spending of their National Health Service on
homeopathic "medicine". The false and misleading information
given to them by the British Homeopathic Association is
likely to backfire on the BHA.

"Homeopathic treatments are usually made by diluting a substance so much
there are no molecules of the original ingredient left. In November the
chief pharmacist at Boots, Paul Bennett, told the inquiry he had no
evidence that homeopathy works. At the weekend, hundreds of people took
part in a "mass overdose" of homeopathic pills outside branches of Boots
to protest against the company selling the products."
