Homeopathy: How Low Do You Go?

I have been watching some homeopathy "developments" in my own backyard, where a homeopathic "doctor" is milking someone I know from hard-earned cash, giving them expensive consultations and worthless sugar pills (or water in a bottle - same thing).

But, today, I've noticed something more worrisome: homeopathic practitioners are trying to cash in on the spreading swine flu scare. That's just plain scary and criminal!

Take a look here:

This is a serious concern, since taking sugar pills instead of real medicines for flu, could kill you.
