# 018 – Homeopathy, What’s The Harm?

The League of Nerds

Homeopathy has consistently found to be an inneffective pre-scientific belief system of placebo pills. However it survives all over the World in a multi-million dollar Alternative Medicine business. But if there is no active ingredient in homeopathy there are therefore no side-effects so if the "worried-well" want to spend their money and use it then where''s the harm?

My name is Myles Power, and I run the educational YouTube channel, powerm1985. I spend what little free time I have sharing my love of SCIENCE! through home experiments, visiting sites of scientific interest, and angrily ranting at pseudoscience proponents. I am also one of the founding members of the podcast 'The League of Nerds' - which I co-host with James from 'The History of Infection'.

  1. It was an excellent night at O’Connells but apologies for the background noise as we were breaking down the equipment afterwards. Next time we’ll have a drinks break when you are recording.

    You sound like a comment made at the end of an edition of the ‘The Infinitely Monkey Cage’, with Brain Cox and Robin Ince. Someone said that homoeopaths don’t have real brains, they have skulls full of water with only memories of brains.
    I still use them, though. The only thing the doctor can give me for my skin condition is steroids and they can only help me in the place I am in, but not cure me. In short, they do fuck all.
