In other words, you can't offer a single peer-reviewed scientific paper "proving" homeopathy works on animals. I could do my own research from now until Whitsun and I wouldn't find one, because there isn't one. However your response is telling; you know that if such a paper did exist you'd be shouting it from the rooftops, but as it doesn't you have to fall back on the utterly lame "look it up yourself" defence.

The plural of anecdote is not evidence. I had rotten 'flu last week, and the drugs I took from Big Pharma didn't seem to make any difference. However, I did wear my purple dressing gown all week, and lo and behold this morning it's gone. Therefore wearing purple dressing gowns cures the 'flu.

If the best you've got is that Prince Charles, who has no scientific credentials nor intellectual credibility (best education money can buy and he managed two A levels (B&D) and a 2:2 in Archaeology!), supports you then you really are in trouble.

The NHS stopped providing homeopathy treatments after a long and intensive review of their efficacy which proved beyond doubt that they had a placebo effect at best. The NHS is, as we all know, strapped for cash, and desperate to save money; they frequently reject the provision of "Big Pharma" drugs on cost grounds. If homeopathy actually worked they would jump at it. Your statement implies that the doctors and other staff who run the NHS are deliberately rejecting effective treatment in order to boost the profits of pharmaceutical companies, which is not only tinfoil hat territory but also utterly contemptible.

There are indeed many problems with the large pharmaceutical companies, but at least they're selling drugs that have been peer-reviewed, tested and shown to work. I'm sure they wish they'd thought of homeopathy; selling people bottles of water without a single trace of the original element in as a cure, that's the ultimate moneyspinner.

Nobody has ever died from homeopathy alone and I didn't say they had. It's impossible to die from consuming tiny quantities of pure water. There are, however, numerous instances of people dying, or causing other people (particularly children) to die, by rejecting real medical treatment that could have saved them and using homeopathy instead. Here's a particularly harrowing example: [www.theguardian.com
