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.”
