Prove Homeopathy Works – And Win Ten Grand!
Us Brits are big consumers of homeopathic remedies, but 'alternative' therapies are often a contentious issue in the medical community.
To try and settle the argument about how effective they are, a leading UK professor has issued a challenge – prove homeopathy works and win £10,000!
Edvard Ernst, professor of complementary medicine at the University of Exeter, reckons that there is no solid evidence that the homeopathic method is effective and so has set the challenge in order to make homeopaths 'put up or shut up'.
The £10,000 cash prize will be given to anyone who can prove homeopathy works using clinical trials, where 50% of patients receive a homeopathic treatment and 50% receive a placebo – with neither group knowing which they're getting.
