A Vastly Incomplete List of Scientific Research Behind Homeopathy

For anyone interested in following up in this area, there is a long list of interesting stuff and links to additional reference material at

As an aside Charles Darwin in his experiments also dabbled in dilutions of homeopathic proportions though whether he added the technique of succussion as well (energising by shaking the diluted fluid a number of times)is I believe unknown. In his work on Insectivorous Plants he says: "It is an astonishing fact ... that so inconceivably minute a quantity of 1/20,000,000 of a grain [a much smaller quantity than the 6th decimal trituration] of ammonia phosphate should induce changes in a gland, sufficient to cause a motor impulse to be sent down the whole length of a tentacle, this impulse exciting movements through an angle of about 180 degrees".
