Precisely Wolfgang - and now you want to go and educate everyone else, so that the placebos won't work on them either!

I'm half making a serious point. I have always read a lot about alternative medicine, and would regard myself as a sceptic. I always thought of this as a good thing. However it backfired on me recently, because I was suffering a bout of depression, but am pregnant, and didnt want to risk any of the prescription drugs which have unknown effects on the unborn child. The doc offered to refer me to a homoeopathist, but I din't see the point as I believed it to be a placebo, and therefore wouldnt work on me, as the placebo effect is usually lost once you know its a placebo. I might have had a less tough time over the last few months if I had stayed in ignorance. But those damn scientists will keep coming up with their studies and arguments - which I cant resist reading....
