(NaturalNews) The pseudo-scientific elite in Canada have launched a new crusade against homeopathy, this time targeting Boiron Laboratories, creator of the popular Oscillococcinum, a cold and flu remedy, and Shoppers Drug Mart, a marketer of this and other Boiron treatments. According to reports, the crux of a new class-action lawsuit alleges that Oscillococcinum is mislabeled because it does not contain measurable amounts of its stated active ingredients.

The concept behind how homeopathy works, as many NaturalNews readers may already know, is that therapeutically-active micro-doses of active substances prepared in diluted mixtures can effectively treat disease symptoms by triggering the body's own natural system of healing. Homeopathy has been shown clinically, time and time again, to be a powerful and effective remedy for many conditions, and millions of people around the world use it safely and effectively.

But the medical-industrial complex abhors homeopathy, taking every opportunity to mock and ridicule it, as well as those that promote and use it. And when it finds the right opportunities, the mainstream medical system launches legal attacks against the legitimacy of homeopathy in the hopes of banning it, despite the fact that it is the second most popular form of medicine in the world, and is completely safe.

In Canada, there have been many concerted efforts recently to tarnish the image of homeopathy, including a recent hit-piece by CBC MarketPlace that makes homeopathy out to be fraudulent and ineffective medicine. Not long after this aired, the new $30 million lawsuit conveniently emerges in an attempt to further demonize homeopathy, and eventually get it pulled from the shelves in the long-term.

But Karen Wehrstein from the Canadian Consumers Centre for Homeopathy (3CH) has created a petition to defend homeopathy in Canada, and protect Boiron and Shoppers Drug Mart from this latest attempt at squelching alternative forms of medicine. The petition's stated goal is 5,000 signatures, but surely we can help Wehrstein exceed that number by signing the petition and sharing it with our friends and family:

3CH is a grassroots, member-funded organization whose goal is to preserve freedom of choice in health care for everyone, which includes the freedom to manufacture, sell, buy and use homeopathic remedies. We encourage you to sign the 3CH petition, and support 3CH in its efforts to protect the safe, effective and inexpensive form of medicine known as homeopathy against those that seek to destroy it.
