Morning Scepticism: Harm

If homoeopathy has no active ingredient, then what's the harm of taking it? The harm is that it fails to do what it's meant to do. Taking a homoeopathic vaccine leaves one susceptible to what a real vaccine would prevent. Taking a homoeopathic cancer remedy doesn't treat the cancer. The harm comes from the reason that one would seek to take it in the first place!
