I agree with Ben, the BBC reporting that homeopathy cures cancer is irresponsible.  That’s not what they reported but they did have a woman on claiming it and that’s what people will see.  The group of MPs seemed to have looked at the evidence and decided that the NHS should not waste money on something that works no better than placebo.  This is a good thing.  However, the BBC did not seem to want to give it enough air time or proper debate.

Anyway, let me take this opportunity to present Ben on Homeopathy:

And on the nacebo (sp?) effect.  WARNING:  Ben says some naughty words at the start of this next video.  I DO NOT approve.

Actually he swears a bit in the middle and he swears a bit near the end as well, so don’t watch it and trust me, the negative placebo effect that he talks about is INSANE
