Homeopathy sceptics have staged a mass "overdose" of homeopathic remedies, in a bid to prove they have no effect.
Protesters ate whole bottles of tablets at branches of Boots in places such as Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow, London, Leicester, Edinburgh and Birmingham.
I am no fan of homeopathic remedies and would probably agree with the arguments presented by these protestors. However, I can’t help regretting that such a thing is done in the name of Scepticism and not some more positive outlook on life. If they had a happier cause they might throw their weight behind some of the positive science they purport to believe in. Still, it’s all grist to the mill I suppose and gives us something to think about.
