Even professional homeopathic practitioners admitted in testimony before the committee that basic claims made about homeopathy have never been tested. For example, the director of the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital, Peter Fisher, asserted that for homeopathy to work it is very important that the solutions be shaken. Asked how much shaking is required to make sure that the homeopathic medication was effective, Fisher said he didn't know because that issue had never been researched: "that has not been fully investigated."
This is a stunning and revealing admission from one of England's top experts on homeopathy. Homeopathy has been around for over two centuries, and yet during all that time apparently not a single homeopathy practitioner has bothered to do any scientific testing to find out how to make sure what they are selling is effective.
Can you imagine a pharmaceutical company trying to sell you a drug they claim will cure you, but when asked how much active ingredient is necessary for it to be effective, they respond that they never really looked into that?
