E-DRUG: Homeopathic Drugs:(3) UK
-------------------------------------------------------------

UK House of Commons prepared a report on homeopathy:
(http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200910/cmselect/cmsctech/45/4502.htm)

Here are the conclusions:
http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200910/cmselect/cmsctech/45/4507.htm

Overall conclusion:
"By providing homeopathy on the NHS and allowing MHRA licensing of 
products which subsequently appear on pharmacy shelves, the Government 
runs the risk of endorsing homeopathy as an efficacious system of 
medicine. 

"To maintain patient trust, choice and safety, the Government 
should not endorse the use of placebo treatments, including homeopathy. 
Homeopathy should not be funded on the NHS and the MHRA should stop 
licensing homeopathic products"
