Why the constant attacks on homeopathy?

The simple, and most obvious answer is that homeopathy is coming under attack because it is successful, and ConMed and Big Pharma does not like it. Think the reverse, if it was not successful, no-one would bother to attack it (and it would have died out years ago).

This article is one of the best I have seen, not only outlining the reasons for the hostility homeopathy generates, but going over the attacks it has suffered now for over two centuries.

You can find it at:

Here is a short extract.

"In 1854 there was a cholera epidemic in London but when the House of Commons asked to see a report about the methods of treatment, patients who had received homeopathic treatment at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital, were not included. The House of Lords then demanded an explanation and it was later shown that under conventional medical care the death rate was 59.2 per cent but for patients under homeopathic care, only 9 per cent!"

The  history of homeopathy is littered with such examples of prejudice by the ConMed profession, which cannot stand the fact that homeopathy is, and always has been, more successful in treating patients successfully.
