Fake medicines given seal of approval

There is sad news for people who care about good science and effective medicines: Homeopathic 'medicines' will be allowed to make medical claims on their packaging here in the UK by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency. It is unbelievable that instead of being prosecuted for fraud the hucksters that flog expensive water/sugar pills are being encouraged. Clearly quackery is highly rewarded here - if you want to make a quick buck flog false hope to the sick.
