The Dilute Homeopathy

by The Metaist


Homeopathy refers to treatment of symptoms by extremely diluted versions of poisons that are thought to create those symptoms. I'll defer to The Amazing Randi for a nice explanation of why that doesn't make any sense.

My favorite part: "Non habit-forming." Except for the people who have a habit of buying homeopathic "remedies."
