A large review by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council has reported that homeopathy is not an effective treatment for any health condition. It cautioned that “people who choose homeopathy may put their health at risk if they reject or delay treatments for which there is good evidence.”

The council, the country’s highest medical research body, conducted an extensive assessment of scientific evidence to develop a position statement on the use of homeopathy. The report incorporated an evaluation of more than 1800 papers, including systematic reviews, published guidelines, and information provided by homeopathy advocacy groups. The analysis identified a total of 225 studies that compared a homeopathic treatment group with a control group and therefore met criteria to be further examined for effectiveness.
