Many homeopaths quote the statements of others lend a veneer of authority to their own works. Unfortunately, homeopaths often quote-mine scientists, misrepresent the authority of a source, or quote vastly outdated texts, which create fallacious appeals to authority.

With luck, and enough people linking to this page or its quotes, search engines will start matching popular quote mines to RW, and thus allowing people to see the full quote easily.

Quotemined text:Original text:
The British Homeopathic Association have quoted this from the Cucherat 2000 meta-analysis:[1][2] "There is some evidence that homeopathic treatments are more effective than placebo""There is some evidence that homeopathic treatments are more effective than placebo; however, the strength of this evidence is low because of the low methodological quality of the trials. Studies of high methodological quality were more likely to be negative than the lower quality studies."
