Genocide or homeopathy?

Radovan Karadzic was captured yesterday, after more than a decade on the run. I heard on the radio this morning that while in hiding, he was a practitioner of alternative medicine. Usually I leave anti-crankery to other people, but I thought this was too good not to mention. Update: The denialism blog has background and photos.
Update: Sean at Cosmic Variance has more.

Homeopathy - does that fall under "first do no harm" - or is that under "first do nothing"?

I think it falls under "first, take their money."

The homeopathic oath:

"First, do no harm
second, ???
Third, profit"

Then, that means they aren't Ferengi's if profit is actually third!

It means that homoeopathy is underpants:
