Homeopathy & Nutritionists vs Real Science!

Homeopathy & Nutritionists vs Real Science! is a stand-up routine by Dara O'Briain about the public understanding of biological and health science.  

Basically, teehee. Especially after my CAM class on homeopathy. For the uninitiated, that's a field whereupon people think that "like cures like." They make healing potions by diluting something to or beyond avogadro's number... and shake the hell out of the bottle (calling it "succussion"). Then they call that an elixir and sell it to you. 

The routine is precious.

"Science knows it doesn't know everything, otherwise it'd stop." Awesome

I think this is so dumb ! I'm really surprised to find this kind of stuff on 3 quarks daily, it wasn't a quark but a "couac"... I checked other stuff by the same guy... nationalistic jokes.
