Confessions of a Quackbuster

This blog deals with healthcare consumer protection, and is therefore about quackery, healthfraud, chiropractic, and other forms of so-Called "Alternative" Medicine (sCAM).

My latest satirical (exasperation) comment at Chirotalk

Topic: The Chiropractic/Homeopathy/Acupuncture Combo.

Reading this guy's web site is like reading a "Who's Who of Quackery"!

Let's play a guessing game.

Tell me, can anyone here name ten chiropractors who aren't involved in some type of quackery?

About half of them are here at ChiroTalk.

Who are the other five?






Seriously, this so-called "profession" never ceases to amaze me. The only explanation I have for the strong propensity to gravitate towards quackery, is that quackery begets quackery. DD and BJ were first-class quacks, and what else could they beget?

It's a miracle that any chiropractor can exist in the profession for more than ten years without getting involved with some weird idea or practice building scam.

Fortunately miracles do happen. We have proof right here, since half of the ten non-quacky chiros in existence are here on this board!
