At the Guardain. Yes, idiot foolishness.
A slightly different thought occurs.
The homeopathic pills are, quite literally, sugar pills. Ain\’t nowt else there.
Now they say that they\’re made by diluting down. Take a solution, dilute it 100 times with water, shake, take a bit, dilute again 100 times down with water and so on to 30 or even 60 times.
12 times would be the last time you\’re likely to see a single molecule of the orginal whatever it was there.
OK, right…now, why not simply sell sugar pills? Why bother with all of the preparation? Just manufacture lots of sugar pills, launch a new homeopathic range…and here\’s the clever bit….charge more for them.
They will be more effective.
Obviously, you\’ll have to have lots of different bottles and labels but the sugar pills can all be the same.
I can\’t see how this would fail. You cannot tell what\’s in the pills by analysing them as there isn\’t anything in the pills to analyse.
The only reason I can think of why this wouldn\’t work is that this is what they\’re all already doing.
