Many of you may be familiar with homeopathy, the idea that greatly diluted potions can help cure disease, our little demonstration points out how ridiculous this is.
You would have to drink almost 4 earths worth of water to get one molecule of active ingredient.
No mechanism known to all of science could possibly lead to this kind of dilution causing any effect to the body, in fact tap water is more likely to have molecules of the active ingredient by contamination then homeopathic remedies.
In this weeks episode of Sciencism Ross, Dan and Andrew discus bone marrow niches, evidence for dark matter, discovering extra terrestrial planets, brain to brain rat interfaces, and discovery of a new Van Allen belt. We also discuss the merits of human space travel, science or fiction and last week in the past.
