  1. GEEZ! You ruined it for me! I was just about to give my bear an accupuncture treatment to detoxify his liver since the arsenic nosode didn’t work :O HAR HAR!

    I have very recently found your blog and site – I am a new regular reader.
    Great information and myth-dispeller. Wonderful.

    Welcome, and thanks for the positive feedback. It’s always a nice anodyne for the heaps of hate mail I get! 🙂

    This is a wonderful blog, thanks for all the great information. Now I’ll have to go look for the Sci-ence webpage LOL.

    You get hate-mail? Not from postmodernists, I hope!

  6. skeptvet says:

    Most of it is not coherent enough to allow an analysis of the underlying philosophical foundations. 🙂

    Hey there! Thanks for the plug!

    I have to say, what you are doing here is wonderful! My girlfriend is an animal rights defender and I see so many farm sanctuaries that use acupuncture and homeopathy to treat their animals. You’re providing well-needed education and critical thinking for underrepresented area of evidence based medicine. Kudos!

    Keep up the good work! Between SkeptVet and EBVMA you have helped take back the public relations high ground generally claimed by those who know little but speak much. These “colleagues” with little real knowledge and a profit motive, apparent graduates of the WC Fields School of Marketing all, are always ready to inflate themselves while fleecing a scientifically uneducated public.

    There’s a book in there somewhere, looking at the post WW2 era of snake oil salesmen, and how despite an age of apparently unprecedented scientific advance, people still spend money on promises made by hucksters. Go figure!

    Thanks Dr. Goldman!
