Skeptics in the UK are overdosing on homeopathic medicine to show that it has no effects as a medicine. They believe this type of medicine is simply a placebo. To proof this, they are protesting in front of popular drug stores that are carrying homeopathic products.
Boot's pharmacy, a popular pharmacy chain in the UK, is the target of these attacks. Boot's pharmacies are all over England. They are easily accessible to many english people. Skeptics are urging the store not carry homeopathic medicines along side pharmacetical drugs. Boots standard medicine director has said "The pharmacy follows the advise of the Royal Pharmacy of Great Britainon on complimentary medicine. This medicine is used by the National Healthcare System(NHS) of England."
Boots has no plans to stop offering homeopathic medicine despite the protests. Almost 1 in 10 people in the UK have tried homeopathic medicines. The popularity of these medicines seem to be growing despite the protests.
Protests are planned by skeptics in other countries including Spain, Canada, Australia and the US.
