Hey everyone I'm new here. Just thought I'd introduce myself by sharing a great website I've found: http://whatstheharm.net/
A lot of people continue to follow CAM therapy because they believe there is no harm. I think there is and have experienced some of the harm in the form of regular unwanted advice. This website shows exactly how devastating these beliefs can be.

Hi Mogz and welcome.

We actually have had people on this forum lose loved-ones due to BS such as that.

Hi Mogz

If Alzheimer’s hasn’t got the better of me, that website was referenced in the forum a few times in the past.  If you’re especially interested in quackery, you might also find both Stephen Barrett’s Quackwatch and Ben Goldacre’s Bad Science blog valuable Internet resources.

Hi Mogz,

Please spread that website far and wide. And welcome! Quackwatch is also a good one.

Cheers
