Child placebo - right or wrong?
A sugar pill which parents can be given to children has been criticised. They are available to buy in the US. The pill which is ultimately only a dummy pill can be given to children in hope of harnessing the placebo effect � where people feel better because they believe they have been given medicine. A UK scientist voiced his concern, saying it could encourage children to become reliant on medicine and pills when they are older. What do you think? Is this a bad idea, teaching children that a pill will always make you feel better? Or is there really nothing to worry about?
