General semanticist, double blind trials are NOT about one cause - one effect relationships in particular at all, they are an unbiased mechanism to study if any given drug, or even a cocktail of drugs, has therapeutic benefits that are statistically significant to an extent greater than a placebo, which is what Homeopathic drugs have NOT been capable of.

One-cause one effect is what is called empirical reductionism.
