Being a stay at home parent requires more medical knowledge than a homeopath, study finds

SPRINGFIELD, ND – In a new study coming out of the University of North Dakota, researchers found that being a stay at home parent actually required more medical know how than being a homeopath.

“Stay at home parents need to be able to react to all kinds of different situations, especially with children,” lead researcher Dr. Frank Moses explained. “Knowing which injuries are serious and require a hospital visit and which can be cured at home is a very important skill.”

The study found that most homeopaths lacked said skill, often attempting to treat conditions or injuries which require the aid of actual medicine.

“We found that some homeopaths even believe they can heal broken bones,” said Moses. “It was pretty incredible.”

Stay at home parents also learn as they go and adapt to situations; homeopaths do not.

“Homeopaths will continue to use the same treatments even though they have been proven not to work. Parents on the other hand will learn what remedies work and which ones don’t and adapt accordingly.”

The American Association of Homeopaths released a statement concerning the study but unfortunately the font was printed homeopathically and was too small to read.

    That is hilarious! And…

    Thank you. I have learned quite a bit since giving birth to a child who was much too interesting starting from his seizures on his second day of life, his open heart surgery for obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and his other ongoing issues that now require an actual “team” to work on.

    Of course I had have lots of chances while in medical facility waiting rooms to read books by Oliver Sacks, Gina Kolata, John Barry, Arthur Allen, Ben Goldacre, Simon Singh, Seth Mnookin, Mary Roach, Jared Diamond, William McNeill, Jon Ronson, David Neiwert, Carl Zimmer, Patricia McAleer Hamaguchi, Steve Silberman and many many others.

    I am still amused that a certain homeopath does not know the definition of the term for “10^-9” — I dare not use the four letters that will bring him here. He really does not like me. šŸ˜‰

    Ah. They had to resort to homeopathic shouting?
    Those sad diluted(sic) fools.
