A podcast review of Quacks, Frauds and Charlatans. Oops. Thats not right. That should be Supplements, Complementary and Alternative Medicine i.e. SCAM.

Well deserved, if I do say so myself.
“Ridicule is the only weapon that can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them.”
-- Thomas Jefferson (on a different topic)
Warning: This is not a balanced review. Most, if not all, of CAM is profoundly moronic. There my be two sides to gun control and foreign policy but in the sciences, including the medical sciences, either you have the data or you do not. You don’t include flat earth theories in discussions of the geology and you do not include intelligent design in discussions of the origin of life.
“I have made a ceaseless effort not to ridicule, not to bewail, nor to scorn human actions, but to understand them.”
This does not apply to me. I am a member of the “reality based community”. Ridicule, bewailing, and scorn are my favorite techniques. I am an arrogant, closed minded, Western trained, tool of the medical industrial complex. And proud of it.
BTW: someone noted my name was no where on the site. It is in the copyright, but this website is all by Mark Crislip.
