"For a pill to be sold it has to out do (by a fair bit) a placebo in tests" Dunno the regulations of whatever country you live in. But in switzerland and france for example, Homeopathy is really common. Homeopathy, is simply a placebo. However, since the effects of placebo are based on ppl believing it works, selling a placebo marketed as "placebo" would defeat the whole principle. Thus they name it Homeopathy instead, and market that. And I can assure you its huge here, pharmacies often contain tons of them, sometimes more than actual drugs, we have ads for them on TV, in the street, and so on.
