New “Science Based Medicine” Blog

Happy New Year, everyone.

My first new project in 2008 is a new science blog – Science Based Medicine.   I will be managing the blog and will be contributing one entry per week, and the New England Skeptical Society with be producing and hosting the blog. The first entry is the mission statement for the blog – to explore all issues of science and medicine, and to educate the public, practitioners, regulators, and the media about the need for the highest standards of science in all of health care.

The blog is a collaboration among various authors – all medically trained and all with a track record of excellent science writing and advocating for quality science in medicine. More contributors will be added over time, but we already have a core of five authors and there will be at least one new entry every Monday – Friday.

So take a look and spread the word.

    This is great to hear.

    It’s very important that you not forget to consult with Bastyr University’s naturopath president emeritus Pizzorno, ND who claims the label “one of the world’s leading authorities on science-based natural / integrative medicine […and he is] the author of Total Wellness and co-author of the internationally acclaimed Textbook of Natural Medicine” per http://www.webmd.com/joe-pizzorno-jr-nd .

    You know, since he knows so much about science: e.g., how the ‘science-based, scientific, medical science’ contains the ‘science-ejected, nonscientific, and not-science-baseable’ (the vitalistic, supernatural spiritistic and other woo-woo kind).

    A science tidbit I learned from the TNM 3rd ed. (see a short review I put up a amazon.com at http://www.amazon.com/review/R3O3Y1LGUXC0Y9/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm ): evolution is proof that life defies the laws of nature — specifically the second law of thermodynamics — and therefore scientifically justifies naturopathy’s vitalistic, supernaturalistic, teleological position!!!

    Hmmm, everybody together say ‘snake oil science….’

    Looks like you have lined up a good group of contributors.
    I look forward to reading the blog.
