Whenever the Huffington Post brings up a science-related issue, I just cringe. It’s Jim Carrey or Deepak Chopra or some other celebrity incompetent babbling out some nonsense — it’s like the site editors have no B.S. detectors at all. Well, now they’ve really done it: they’ve got some quack named Kim Evans piggy-backing on the recent concerns about a pandemic to offer her own remedies: Got the swine flu? Treat it with an enema. And great dog in heaven, they’ve got another quack touting chiropractic as a treatment for swine flu.
Of course, it’s not just the liberal-leaning Huffpo — every day, the frauds at the conservative website, Human Events, are dunning me with ads to buy Coenzyme Q10! And Magic Exercises to give me washboard abs in only minutes a day! Is this a golden age for quackery now?
