Ah, that got your attention, didn’t it? Well, let’s face it: there will be fringe therapy whackjobs who are going to say that, presumably on the basis that any attempt to bring reality and logic back into their drab little lives is a vile conspiracy. We’re talking of course about What ‘What Doctors Dont Tell You’ Don’t Tell You, a new website set up to centralise educational posts debunking the arrant fuckwittery, rampant jiggeryfuckery and balls-out antiveracity that gush incessantly from every conceivable money-making orifice of the monthly anti-health magazine entitled What Doctors Don’t Tell You and its associated webshite. Which I’m not going to link to because they’d love the attention and potential ad income.
So, it’s a team effort. I’m in on it. However, don’t let this put you off. There are a number of talented science bloggers contributing to the site, debunking the pseudoscience and – I’ll use the word even if the site administrator won’t – outright lies that comprise the entirety of that sorry publication, article by article and press release by press release.
So next time somebody says “Well, I think this because Lynne McTaggart and/or WDDTY say so”, you’ll have the information ready to hand to help you explain why WDDTY is exaggerating, missing the point, or just plain, completely and dangerously wrong.
