May I present you with today’s episode of Your Daily Woo, brought to you—very unfortunately—by me. Try to figure out why I’m ashamed to have bought the following product:

I swear I didn’t know! It was 2009! I didn’t even use them! If I had realized what the label claimed, I wouldn’t have bought the silly things.

Dear science, please forgive me for purchasing homeopathic “medicine.”

The label says “No risk of side effects. No expiration date.” Of course there are no side effects and no expiration date. There’s nothing in them to cause a reaction! The main ingredient is bullshit.

Drug Facts
Each active ingredient listed in this product has been diluted out for your safety…

No it bloody hasn’t. It’s been diluted out so that the magic spell can work. Even the safety data has been diluted down. 🙂

To be serious for a bit, I had some snoring issues and it turned out to be sleep apnea (one stops breathing in their sleep) and that is serious business. If you snore a lot talk to your doctor about it.

    Thank you, yes that would be serious. My step father has apnea–quite severe, in fact. Mine is mainly from a deviated septum and being overweight. No picnic, but not too serious.

“Homeopathic medicine” – that’s an oxymoron if ever there was one!

At least you know it. What I want to know is, how’d you end up buying that in the first place? It says “fraudulent product” in big letters right on the front of the package (oops I mean it says “homeopathic”, oh wait, they mean the same thing anyway).

You could always take a cue from James Randi and down them all at once…

    I liked the package design and just tossed it in my basket. Hehe

Ahh snazzy font layout, how you betray our good judgement! Since I’ve seen this concept, I’ve considered it a parallel to the idea of homeopathy.

After you brought it to their attention, Huffington Post will probably start promoting this stuff now. They love their homeopathy!

In the name of Science, I absolve you of your sins GodlessGirl!

I was born naive. I hope i’ve gotten better. Sagan’s “The Demon Haunted World” was pretty good. I read my copy from the local library. One of the advantages of reading library books is that you don’t have to store books at your house.
