Harm from Homeopathy

Blue_question_markLately, homeopathy has been targeted as being equivalent to placebo based on the odd principle of dilution by which homeopathic remedies are prepared. However, as the war against homeopathy continues, trials showing how harmful homeopathic remedies can be are also appearing. The question now is, does homeopathy have an effect or doesn’t it? If it has an effect, then harm is inevitable, but that is true of any medication. The flip side of the coin is that if we agree that homeopathy has some effect, then the placebo theory is debunked.

Critics are in a difficult position, they want it both ways. If homeopathy has no effect because it is only placebo then why are these homeopathic placebo’s causing harm?
