I am new on this board, so bear with me.
On my forum there is the usual discussion on the (de)merits of homeopathy (load of tosh, if you ask me...) and someone has come up with above studies.
As one is published in the BMJ and one in the Lancet they cannot be so easily dismissed.
Does anyone know them or knows why they are not reliable?
The one in the Lancet is very old, but it is still The Lancet, so I would like to know more.
Can anyone help?
I am not medical doctor, so I cannot read competently a medical paper, reason why I am asking for help.
In case someone can read Italian, here is the discussion that originated this post: http://www.autosvezzamento.it/forum/Thr ... 3#pid39113
Thanks in advance.
