Montreal Gazette - Joe Schwarz: Homeopathy relies on extreme dilution


When I dilute my chicken soup, its taste suffers. When I take one Aspirin tablet instead of two, my headache doesn’t resolve. When I use less detergent, my clothes do not come out as clean. Yet, in the topsy-turvy world of homeopathy, less is more.

The more a biologically active substance is diluted, the more potent it becomes. The most powerful homeopathic drugs, the ones that according to some homeopaths have to be used the most carefully, are the ones that do not even contain a single molecule of the original substance!
