I was listening to a talk radio show here in France the other day. The topic was Swine 'flu, or "Grippe A" as it is called here. They had an epidemiologist and another medico on the show. Someone called in to ask if the homeopathy companies were also working on treatments for the 'flu.
Both doctors bottled it and instead of saying "look, it's bollocks" they waffled on about the contribution alternate medicine can make to treating symptoms. They did say that it could have no antiviral effect, but I was disappointed.
Homeopathy is big in France, every pharmacy has a big section. Every time I go into one for something I have to ask if the stuff they are handing over is homeopathic, and if it is I refuse it and ask for something else. Happened not too long ago when I had a sore throat. My wife got conned into paying for sugar pills for our daughter's outbreak of excema. Steroid cream did the job in the end.
