Medical Reality versus Baloney

With the American Medical Association and medical journals such as Lancet now joining the delusional leftists and their scientific fairy tales, it is becoming more difficult to separate medical fact from fiction.  As a counterweight, there is a great posting about the “Medical Bullshit Detector”, which many people will find useful:

Medical bullshit is bullshit meant to get you to either buy a worthless product or follow baseless, and potentially harmful, advice. Medical bullshit comes in many forms ranging from bestselling self-help books on the latest miracle diet, to unregulated claims on the bottles of supplements, to medical doctors offering untested treatments with stem cells for anything from arthritis to dementia.

The article lists 11 specific items to look for that are potential indicators of medical bullshit.  It’s well worth the read.
