  A major Australian study debunks homeopathy&mdash;again<br /> <br /> <br /> By Erin Blakemore<br /> smithsonian.com<br /> March 11, 2015<br /> <br /> Perhaps you remember when scientists debunked homeopathy in 2002. Or <br /> 2010. Or 2014. But now a major Australian study analyzing over 1,800 <br /> papers has shown that homeopathy, the alternative treatment that relies <br /> on super-diluted substances and the principle of &ldquo;like cures like&rdquo; is <br /> completely ineffective.<br /> <br /> After assessing more than 1,800 studies on homeopathy, Australia&rsquo;s <br /> National Health and Medical Research Council was only able to find 225 <br /> that were rigorous enough to analyze. And a systematic review of these <br /> studies revealed &ldquo;no good quality evidence to support the claim that <br /> homeopathy is effective in treating health conditions.&rdquo;<br /> <br /> The Australian study, which is the first position statement relying on <br /> such an extensive review of medical literature, strikes the latest blow <br /> at a 200-year-old alternative treatment developed by a German physician <br /> with &ldquo;no interest in detailed pathology, and none in conventional <br /> diagnosis and treatment.&rdquo; The Washington Post reports that the study&rsquo;s <br /> authors are concerned that people who continue to choose homeopathic <br /> remedies over proven medicine face real health risks&mdash;including the <br /> nearly 4 million Americans who use homeopathic &ldquo;medicines.&rdquo;<br /> <br /> The head of the National Health and Medical Research Council told the <br /> Guardian that he hopes the findings will lead to changes in Australia&rsquo;s <br /> health insurance and pharmacy systems. But he also said that &ldquo;there <br /> will be a tail of people who won&rsquo;t respond to this report, and who will <br /> say it&rsquo;s all a conspiracy of the establishment.&rdquo;<br /> <br /> News of the Australian study comes on the heels of newly released <br /> National Health Interview Survey data showing a &ldquo;small but significant&rdquo; <br /> increase in the use of homeopathy during 2012. And recently, a Canadian <br /> homeopathic college came under fire for taking an anti-vaccination <br /> stance and promoting homeopathic &ldquo;nosodes&rdquo; as an alternative to <br /> vaccines.<br /> <br /> But will the not-so-new news that homeopathy is ineffective keep <br /> consumers from wasting their money on the complementary therapy? If the <br /> growing homeopathic industry is any indication, the answer is probably <br /> no.<br /> <br /> -- <br /> Tra il rosso ed il nero,<br /> vince sempre lo zero.
