The National Health Service

Amend the NHSChoices website to indicate homeopathy's ineffectiveness.

The current NHS choices page on homeopathy is misleading and presents homeopathy as if it is a valid treatment for potentially serious conditions such as asthma and depression, which may cause the public to make erroneous and potentially life-threatening decisions relating to their healthcare.
In actual fact the current state of the available evidence indicates that homeopathy is no more effective than placebo, as was determined by the House of Commons science and technology committee This advice was watered down as a result of lobbying by a pro-homeopathy organisation. It is a disgrace that this service is offered by the NHS, and that inaccurate information is provided about it on their public information website.
