Attenti alla omeopatia

Ho appena sentito, sul Radio Monte Carlo, qualcuno (una “farmacista”) che spiegava quale sono le remedie omeopatiche di portare in vacanza. Volgio dire, in italiano (ma non so se i motori di ricerca troveranno comunque) che omeopatia è una grande cagata che non funzione per niente e non ha nessun base nè scientifico nè medico, ed è presente in farmacie solo così che Boiron possono pigliare soldi. Evitalo.

(I've just heard on Radio Monte Carlo, some “pharmacist” or other banging on about which homeopathic remedies to take on holiday. At least he didn't mention malaria, but he did mention “Sol” for sunburn. Readers of this blog will know what a big pile of nonsense this is, I just don't expect that listeners of Radio Monte Carlo necessarily will. Italy apparently has an above average number of users, if you believe that link.)

Maybe I'll edit this post a bit after I've had more of a look around, to find out how entrenched the woo is...
