From The Telegraph
It's some of the comments which got me:Those who had a series of five consultations with a homeopathic doctor experienced “significant clinical benefits,” - whether the tincture they received was a specially prepared “homeopathic” remedy used to treat rheumatism, or a placebo.
Patients given exactly the same remedies without the consultations did not gain the improvements.
The study’s authors said the findings suggested that simply “talking and listening” to patients could dramatically assist their health.
Prof George Lewith, Professor of Health Research from Southampton University, said: “This research asked the question: 'Is homeopathy about the talking, or is it about the medicine?’ We found it was about the talking, and indeed about the listening.”

Oh dear, it must mean that all the animals treated must have heard, understood and believed every word that was spoken to them.
What an absolute load of rubbish and waste of research time and money

... The reason scientists need to legitimise homoeopathy is that people need it and it is effective. The present attitude of the scientific establishment is rather like refusing to accept that Newcomen's steam engine doesn't work (1804) because Kelvin hasn't formulated the second law of thermodynamics (1850).
The main way the Telegraph is superior to to Mail is that it has more paper with which to wipe the botty.
