£10k purse for proving homeopathy’s effectiveness.

A doctor and a physicist have put up a £10,000 for anybody who can demonstrate that homeopathic medicine works better than a placebo. Homeopathy is at best a placebo, at worst it’s something closer to medicalized superstition. “Homeopaths,” writes New Scientist dryly, “seem in no hurry to take up the offer.” Somebody will win that 10k quid about the time a psychic wins the lottery.

  1. I used to be skeptical, but after seeing my cat get off daily meds for seizures I can say it works better than medicine.

  2. Then that £10,000 can be yours!

    (Or, alternately, there’s actually something in what you’re giving said cat, some herbally goodness. That’d be my guess.)
