Loved this quote from the UK Parliament in the comments section:
"And this exchange in the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee on 21 February 2007
"Ms Chatfield: I am Kate Chatfield. I am here to represent the Society of Homeopaths and I am a senior lecturer in homeopathy at the University of Central Lancashire.
Q538 Lord Broers: I have a simple, technical question about homeopathy and drugs. Is it possible to distinguish between homeopathic drugs after they have been diluted? Is there any means of distinguishing one from the other?
Ms Chatfield: Only by the label."
Straight from the mouth of an expert in homeopathy."
