Considering how much of a negative impact homeopathy is considered to have in the african continent by many of the volenteers i have spoken to i'm suprised it was even mentioned, especially when linking it with such serious conditions.
A meta analysis of the research into homeopathy indicates no detectable ability to effect a condition beyond the placebo effect i think it quite right that valuable resources not be expended to it, the vast amount of literature into the research of homeopathy tends to come from outright flawed trials.
Perhaps rather than just accepting a persons point of view highly paid MP's should conduct their own research, or actually have their researchers do it, and become informed about the issues. He seems to have an extremely limited grasp of the chemistry of homeopathy, in that it essentially ignors a large portion of our knowledge of chemistry.
For anyone interested further, a good google search and a few hours reading can inform you greatly for the cost of a computers electicity.
