Meeting of the Skeptical Minds

The Power of the Placebo, Indeed!  Peter came up with a very good suggestion... to watch the BBC Horizon program on Placebo.  Take a look and then answer the question, is a placebo really a placebo?  And is that question in and of itself a tautology :-)

    Thanks a lot to Peter for coming up with this video. It nicely confirms what i found out when treating patients with homoeopathy and tellingthem right from the start, that there is no actice ingredient in the sugar globules, not even some kind of "cosmic energy" or quantumquatsch.
