Why Are We Suing CVS?

Homeopathy is fake medicine. It doesn’t treat or cure anything. It’s based on junk science. But retailers and pharmacies will sell it to you anyway.

The Center for Inquiry is doing something about it. We’re suing CVS, the largest drug retailer in the United States, for fraud.

Check out the video below to understand why:

If you look for cold and flu remedies in a CVS store, you’ll see homeopathic products right next to real, evidence-based treatments.

If you search for cold and flu remedies on CVS’s website, you’ll see homeopathic products recommended and nested right along with real medicine.

CVS knows that homeopathy is baseless pseudoscience. They know it doesn’t work. But they’re happy to take your money anyway.

The Center for Inquiry is dedicated to fostering a society based on reason and science, and we think consumers shouldn’t be tricked into buying fake medicine that wastes their money and puts their health at risk.

We can’t do this work alone. We need your support. Donate or become a member today, and stand with us against snake oil peddlers and deceptive pseudoscience.




The Center for Inquiry gratefully acknowledges the Stiefel Freethought Foundation and its ongoing support of this work.
