Homeopathy gets throat-punched then drop-kicked by British Parliment

Over in the UK, a big report was released today by the Parlimentary Committee on Science and Technology. In it, homeopathy is basically called out as being ineffective pseudoscience, and bad medicine.  Reading a few of the points made in the report totally made my morning while I was waiting for some computer simulations (and some laundry) to finish!

There's a nice commentary and list of highlights over at Gimpy's Blog:
The Evidence Check on Homeopathy – a merciless punch to its vitalist organs (despite attempts to water down report).
You can also check out the short press release from the Science and Technology Committee
MPS URGE GOVERNMENT TO WITHDRAW NHS FUNDING AND MHRA LICENSING OF HOMEOPATHY.
which also includes a link to the full report.
