Water you doing

Protecting kids from homeopathic stupidity, that’s what.

Under the new policy, Health Canada will no longer approve any health claims for homeopathic cough, cold and flu products aimed at children unless they are backed by scientific evidence. The change will end the near-monopoly that homeopathic manufacturers have in marketing cough and cold remedies to children. Since 2008, makers of over-the-counter cough and cold medication have not been allowed to market their products to children because of reports of serious injuries and deaths related to dosing problems with those products.

Nice first step.

  1. Let’s hope.

  2. “unless they are backed by scientific evidence”

    Considering that it is the basic IDEA of homeopathy that is not backed by evidence, homeopathy itself is what should be regulated out of existence, at least as far as governmental recognition goes. Homeopathy is less therapeutic than blood-letting.

    At least we’re not the UK, where homeopathy itself is funded by their N.H.S., mostly against public sentiment.
