    Quackpot Barrett Crushed in Federal Court - Again...

    Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

    June 25th, 2003

    Some people never learn. Stephen Barrett ( seems to be one of those.

    Despite loss after loss, and humiliation on top of humiliation, self styled "quackbuster" Stephen Barrett trudges on to the next embarrassment.

    Like a bug in the fast lane, Barrett is doomed to be wiped off the windshield of the North American Health Freedom Movement time after time, I guess.

    Homeopathy has been proved more successful and cost-effective than conventional medicine in the first comparison of the two approaches.

    Proof of its effectiveness has emerged from an extensive study of its use in treating chronic disorders such as back pain. The study ignored the question of how homeopathy might work and focused on how well it performs.

    Researchers in Germany recruited more than 400 adults and children with long-term health problems ranging from sinusitis to insomnia and depression. Half were treated using conventional therapy; the other half were treated homeopathically. After six months, the condition of the patients treated homeopathically had improved significantly more, and more quickly, than the others while the cost for each was similar.
