19th Century snake oil claim: Mercury will cleanse your body.

21st Century snake oil claim: Chelation will cleanse mercury from your body 'cause the Rothschilds poisoned you with it to reduce the world's population by 90% so they can engineer a new race of Super-Jews in Israel.

Well, mercury would cure your syphilis. So at least it did something.

More proof that HuffPo is the left-wing equivalent of sites like Red State; full of ret@rds who deny science if it clashes with their biases.

WTF are you talking about pharmmajor?

Well, they're not running any AGW-deniers for office, unlike the Libertarian Party. So they've got that going for them.

In early 2010, Alexa Ray Joel, the daughter of singer Billy Joel and actress/model Christy Brinkley, supposedly tried to kill herself by taking a homeopathic medicine, called Traumeel.

So...stupidity can save lives, it seems. Probably the only instance of homeopathy actually doing someone some good.

HuffPo has been awful with regards to 'medical' coverage. They gave a platform to anti-vaxers and are now promoting homeopathy. When it comes to science reporting, they are the left's version of global warming/evolution denying site.

Exactly what I've been saying.

The article is immediately smacked down in the comments section. So while the editors of HuffPo are to blame, one can't blame the community or draw any generalizations about the "left" supporting their own brand of anti-science nonsense.

I'm not saying that the 'left' is anti-science or impervious to science in the way that TP/GOP has been. This was meant more of a comment against the HuffPo than the general left. Folks on the left are more likely to fall for the naturalistic fallacy (if it's natural it's better) or 'organic farming' BS, but that pales in comparison to evolution/global warming denial.
Some lefty bloggers are excellent science writers. For example, Darksyde on DKos is very good.

Maybe the editor of their Medical coverage is Bill Maher... For a guy who preaches the brand of know-nothing mocking, progressive liberalism he does, he certainly never fails to toss out science in favor of capitalist corporate conspiracies whenever he goes off on modern medicine. I'm no fan of the industry, but saying things like 'medicine is making us sicker.' Is where he loses me...

not to make this suddenly about Maher,... I was just thinking with my fingers again.

In a just world, James Randi would have some sort of national monument somewhere.
