Ignorance About Homeopathy
Abstract: Three hundred and three (303) adults selected by a research consultancy were asked six openended questions about homeopathy to ascertain their beliefs, knowledge, and behavior. just over 40% said homeopathy meant to them 'natural or herbal medicine"; while approximately one third said they do not know how homeopathy 'works." Just under one third believed that homeopathy was available on the British National Health Service, while two thirds agreed that it was quite easy to get homeopathic treatment. Despite its popularity, people remain surprisingly ignorant about homeopathy.
