Poked around a little bit and came across this article, which I found interesting but vague. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/2512105.stm. The end of the piece offers another link to a further study which supposedly determines whether or not homeopathy has any scientifically proven, research-based validity.
One caveat, though:
Y'know how they say "Those who have the facts, pound the facts; those who don't, pound the table!"? Well, this James Randi fellow seems to be hovering right on the border, perhaps leaning more to the pounding the table side, so take it with a grain of salt--or an entire shaker, if you'd like.
My intent is not to be a homeopathy basher or a staunch proponent of Western medicine either. It's just to think. I think, therefore I am. I think.
