On the early days of this blog, i intended to cover all kind topics, from comics to science. Debunking Astrology was one of the first posts, where the skeptic in me showed off. Even if i don’t take a public stance against pseudo science as often as i should, some things should be exposed, with homeopathy as one of the main offenders to science.
That’s why i’m supporting the 10:23 Campaign, joining next Saturday a Global Overdose to expose homeopathic remedies as in fact worthless. People in more than 60 cities all over the world will join to ingest an overdose of homeopathic pills, and since those remedies don’t have any active ingredient and work as a pure placebo, you should get the point of what homeopathic products are good for.
In Lisbon, we question how the official drug administration, Infarmed, considers these pills as valid farmaceuticals to be sold along with antibiotics or birth control pills. If you’d like to expose this scam, come and meet us next February 5th, at 10:23am at Jardim do PrÃncipe Real, Lisbon.
