Is your doctor peddling any of these quack ideas?

Is your doctor peddling any of these quack ideas? – Times Online: ““Speaking from a position of authority, as physicians do, requires constant evaluation of the validity of our knowledge.””

It’s true, doctors need to be constantly on the alert that what they are suggesting is based in fact. This artcile is extremmely interesting..and I spent teh whole time going Oh? Oh! Uuh. many of these things we hold to be true and have done for some time so it is a bit of a wake up call. We are all more canny about separating fact from fiction, truth from hype and yet we are still caught out. My own doctor is good at getting the facts out and will draw on traditional and household remedies as well. It provides a really human, helpful approach.
