Dann brauchen wir halt mehr Studien!

In Bayern möchte man mit Steuergeldern erforschen, ob Homöopathie bei bakteriellen Infektionen den Verbrauch von Antibiotika senken kann.
Damit reiht man sich in einen Chor ein, der beständig Mittel zur Untersuchung der Homöopathie fordert. Der Forschungsbedarf wird mit einer „nicht eindeutigen Studienlage“ begründet.
Allerdings ist dieses Argument eher Ausdruck eines fehlenden Verständnisses der Grundlagen als sinnvolle Begründung für die Freigabe von Forschungsgeldern. Warum? Jetzt wird es etwas knifflig!

A #homeopathegg #tweetorial:
It’s Easter again, and for reasons that remain unclear to me, millions of people are spending time and money turning eggs different colors. I’m going to dye some eggs, too…but this year, I’m going to try something different--using #homeopathy. 1/X
Many people think homeopathy is a synonym for “natural." It’s not. Homeopathy is a system of "medicine," developed in the early 1800’s by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician who had stopped practicing medicine because he felt that he was often doing more harm than good. 2/X
And because he lived during a time when we had very little understanding of what caused diseases or how to treat them, he was probably right. But Sam's hiatus from medicine didn't last long. One day he read about the use of cinchona in the treatment of malaria. 3/X

Allez, ça fait longtemps que j'ai rien posé ici.

Je vais parler d'homéopathie. #Thread #FakeMed #Homeopathy
J'ai toujours été fasciné par les très grands nombres. Et il faut bien reconnaître que l'homéopathie, à ce niveau, c'est pas mal.
Si vous prenez un petit granule d'Arnica 9CH, le "9CH" signifie "dilué 9 fois à la centésimale Hahnemannienne".
Une dilution d'1CH, on part du produit de départ, on en prend une petite quantité (disons Q) et on la place dans un récipient, qu'on complète avec 99Q d'eau.
On a donc une concentration 100 fois moins grande. Jusque là c'est facile.
Là, la question logique, c'est "Donc une dilution 9CH, on a dilué 900 fois c'est ça? C'est vrai que c'est beaucoup, 900 fois."
La réaction logique quand on est encore innocent. 😇

How homeopaths believe #homeopathy can help with antimicrobial resistance:…

More written evidence from homeopaths.

This has to be the clincher, surely... them are mightily potent homeopathic words...…
Predictably, the College of Medicine pushes quackery in its response on antimicrobial resistance:…

Monday, first topic: the journey to #scicomm.
There are plenty of ways to be involved in scicomm, as shown by the variety of hosts for this account.
I’ll discuss how I went from research to #scicomm, but I am curious about you.
What is your primary occupation?
If #scicomm is your primary occupation, which background do you have ?
If research is your primary occupation, what kind of #scicomm/outreach are you mostly involved in?
