Homeopathy (Homoeopathy) can cure cancer?

Homeopathy and Cancer
Perhaps no other approach to cancer treatment is as contentious as whether homeopathy can have a curative impact.
On the one side we have those who say there is no evidence whatsoever that homeopathy is any better than a placebo and against that there are those who will point to recent research conducted at M.D.Anderson and published in the February 2010 issue of the International Journal of Oncology in which homeopathic solutions were shown to have an impact on cancer cells in lab settings.
A full account of this can be found here:
This is somewhat embarrassing to the anti-homeopathic brigade who have not stopped calling homeopathic unscientific.
The problem is that to now say that there is no evidence for homeopathy is itself an unscientific statement – it is an ideological statement.
This new study is very embarrassing to people who have been banging their tub against homeopathy because their key argument is that homeopathy cannot have any effect at all as there is nothing there to cause this effect – Homeopathic solutions being so dilute that they almost certainly do not contain even one molecule of the substance of which they are homeopathic versions. But this of course is a statement not of fact but of theory (it is therefore not scientific but philosophical or conjectural)
So next time someone says there is no evidence supporting homeopathy you should just say “I would like to refer you to the February 2010 issue of the International Journal of Oncology. I think you’ll find there is evidence.”
