The use of homeopathic products can bring great harm
The Council of the European academies of Sciences – the body that represents the Academy of Sciences of different countries, issued a statement which criticized homeopathy, and warned that “advertising and the use of homeopathic products can bring great harm.”
In a 12-page document, the Council summarized the results of scientific studies, surveys and even a parliamentary report, which showed the futility of homeopathic remedies. It is the extract from the report of the British Parliament, which affirms that “a systematic review and meta-analyses have conclusively demonstrated that homeopathic products work no better than placebo”.
An important item on the European application was the allegation of direct harm done by homeopathy is consuming her people.
A statement about the safety of homeopathy is one of the main arguments of its adherents. The use of homeopathic medicines a patient can impede the search for more appropriate, evidence-informed medical treatment. In addition, its use undermines people’s confidence in evidence-based medicine, if “treatment” is useless.
Based on the above data, the Council issued recommendations to the member countries of the European Union concerning the advertising and sale of homeopathic remedies.
For example, the national health organization should not cover the cost of homeopathic remedies and practices, “until demonstrated their efficacy and safety through rigorous tests.” In addition, any homeopathic remedies should be accompanied by a description of the active substances and concentrations in which they are present.
