Media Advisory: Centre for Inquiry-Mass Global "Overdose" Will Expose Scam Medications Sold by Major Retail Pharmacies

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 2, 2011) - As part of the CFI Extraodinary Claims Bus Campaign, consumer  advocates will swallow "overdoses" of scam medications sold by major retailers which contain no active ingredients, as part of worldwide demonstrations in over 25 countries and 55 cities to inform consumers about homeopathy.

Toronto joins Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Kitchener-Waterloo, Ottawa and Montreal in the '10:23 Campaign'. 'There's Nothing In Homeopathy', as homeopathic remedies available on the shelves of pharmacies and private practitioners contain none of the natural ingredients they are supposedly based on, and have been shown by clinical trials to be no more effective than water.

WHEN: 12:00 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 5, 2011
WHERE: SW Corner, Yonge St. and Dundas St., Toronto, in front of Eaton Centre
