This coming weekend groups from all over Canada (except the east coast – hop to it!!) will be participating in the international 10:23 Campaign as they attempt a death-defying “overdose” from homeopathic medications.
Participants will swallow “overdoses” of scam medications sold by major retailers which contain no active ingredients. The action is the culmination of a worldwide demonstration taking place in more than 25 countries to inform consumers about homeopathy. Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Kitchener-Waterloo, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal will staging their own events.
The protests will show that ‘There’s Nothing In Homeopathy’, as homeopathic remedies available on the shelves of pharmacies and from private practitioners contain none of the natural ingredients they are supposedly based on, and have been shown by clinical trials to be no more effective than water.
Below are the links to each event:
Kitchener-Waterloo: Feb. 6th 1300 at Kitchener City Hall
As more specific information comes in, this post will be updated. This is a great opportunity to come together as a community and speak out against bad science, please join your local group!
News, notes and video about the events will be available on the 10:23 Canada blog site here.
