    Damn, I got excited because I thought it was specifically skepticism about Dr. Oz and his quackery.

    HA! Sad! We *could* have an entire conference based off skepticism and the garbage Dr. Oz promotes!

    Further O/T…
    I hope folks from science and medicine will step up and take down OZ. “Alt” med has become mostly snake oil with a “natural goodness” paint job.

    I recently caved in to pressure from an acquaintance try a supplement for a chronic condition, finally giving in after a nurse at my specialist opined that it would be helpful. I felt most foolish when Doc pointed out the the only significant active ingredient was potassium, with 1/8 gram of various extracts (grape seed, wine, eye of newt, etc) thrown in.* 90+% of each dosage is that special natural healing substance, sugar.

    *If it contains even that. The FDA can’t regulate or test supplements, so it’s take their word that they opened the right box of really natural good stuff from Ship Direct PRC.
