Also Don't Rely On Magic Pixies To Beat TB.

This is an old story but I only saw it for the first time yesterday, when someone linked to it in a thread about alternative medicine:
Don't rely on homeopathy to beat malaria, doctors warn
I'm not usually an advocate of eugenics on this blog but surely anyone stupid enough to try to protect themselves from malaria with the contents of their herb rack should be encouraged in their efforts to remove themselves from the gene pool. Why do I suspect that the kind of people who would disregard medical advice when it comes to Malaria are the same ones who would go into a blind panic over their mobile phone causing cancer?
