    A placebo is a pseudo drug, meaning in a trial, for example you are tying a new pill to make people into superhumans, you would give half of the people the drug and the other half a placebo (a pill made out of sugar is a common placebo), so you have 2 groups to look at and compare results. All in all you basically a placebo is what to give to someone (usually during a drug trial) that has no effect on the body (for example a sugar pill)
