Health Canada has responded to the story, but this leaves me with more questions than answers.
"When a product's labelling is not in compliance with what has been approved, Health Canada takes the necessary steps to address the situation.
With respect to Nighton's (Marketplace's made-up product) ingredients, they are found within recognised sources of evidence for homeopathic products."What are these sources Health Canada is referring to and why are they recognized? The scientific community has long discredited homeopathy as quackery. As Dr. Steven Novella writes in his blog Neurologica, the efficacy of this alternative medicine has been thoroughly studied and remains unproven.
