What about homeopathy? Not for canker sores—but for ADHD, asthma, cancer, dementia, influenza, and the induction of labor?

A meta-analysis of all the best studies was published this year covering all those conditions. Homeopathy: good, bad, or a waste of money? According to the best science we have: useless.

Homeopathy advocates claim that the medical establishment’s campaign against them is no more than a witch hunt. It didn’t help matters this year, when the British Medical Association declared homeopathy is “witchcraft.”

To see any graphs, charts, graphics, images, and quotes to which Dr. Greger may be referring, watch the above video. This is just an approximation of the audio contributed by veganmontreal.
