The history of homeopathy in cartoon form

First, there was the history of Andrew Wakefield and the MMR vaccine in cartoon form. Now there’s the history of homeopathy (click on the image):

The cartoonist, Darryl Cunningham, says this is a first try at such a history, a beta version, if you will. It’s definitely a good start, particularly the part about how homeopaths in Africa have advocated using homeopathic nostrums to prevent and treat malaria. Particularly true is the conclusion that homeopathy is not science. It is faith. I’d also add that, as I’ve mentioned before, it’s also basically sympathetic magic.
