Médecins Sans Medicine?: Volunteer homeopaths in Honduras, funded by Canadian aid.

Homeopathy is the air guitar of medicine

Less Médecins Sans Frontières and more Médecins Sans Medicine

Via CBC News:

Chagas disease (American trypanosomiasis) is an insidious tropical infection that begins with flu-like symptoms and can end with heart failure.

The only proven treatments are a pair of costly pharmaceutical drugs.

But a group of Canadian homeopaths say they can detect, prevent and treat the disease, and the federal government is paying to take their remedies to sick Hondurans.

Quebec-based Terre Sans Frontières (TSF) is spending $350,000 in aid money from Global Affairs Canada to dispatch more than a dozen volunteer homeopaths to Honduras over five years.

More on the ridiculousness of homeopathy here, here, and here.  Not only is this a waste of money, it’s going to harm Hondurans.
