Homeopatia Funciona?

A grande polêmica em torno da eficácia da homeopatia se apoia no discurso daqueles que alegam não existirem estudos específicos sobre sua eficácia. Aqui vão alguns estudos Clínicos e Biológicos que tratam do assunto. Essa é uma coletânea antiga que fiz.

Atualmente há muitos outros mais em revistas indexadas. Basta fazer uma pesquisa. Então vamos lá:
