This was followed by similar campaigns across the globe in the preceding years: one amidst the protest in UK on January 30, 2010 and at the Berkeley SkeptiCal conference in 2012. Now that we are in the midst of heated issues, cynics would want to witness once again the real score in possibility of homeopathic overdose or if it really is a fraud.

Slide 7

Homeopath members of The Peterson Group, one of the leading sources of information on alternative, complementary and integrative medicines, argues that if the critics have proven that nothing happens to those that committed the “mass suicide stunt”, doesn’t it mean that homeopathic treatments are as safe as it claim to be?
