  1. Dr. Gorski pontificates about the Gerson Therapy on Uprising Radio
    Every so often I get requests to be interviewed on the radio about skeptical topics. Now, why anyone would ever want to interview me, who knows? But they do, and when I can manage to accommodate reporters or interviewers, I do. Last week, I was interviewed on Uprising Radio, in which I discussed alt…
  2. The (Not-So-)Beautiful (Un)Truth about the Gerson protocol and cancer quackery
    Note added by editor: The complete movie is now available on YouTube: Although this blog is about medicine, specifically the scientific basis of medicine and threats to the scientific basis of medicine regardless of the source, several of us also have an interest in other forms of pseudoscience …
  3. Yahoo News spews NaturalNews anti-vaccine (and other) propaganda
    Yahoo News appears to have confused NaturalNews with actual news. It’s not. NaturalNews is the in-house propaganda organ for Mike Adams, whom I’ll introduce in a minute (although he needs no introduction for most readers here). A couple of recent examples:   Yahoo News 9.25.14   A re…
  4. Ketogenic diet does not “beat chemo for almost all cancers”
    One of the difficult things about science-based medicine is determining what is and isn’t quackery. While it is quite obvious that modalities such as homeopathy, acupuncture, reflexology, craniosacral therapy, Hulda Clark’s “zapper,” the Gerson therapy and Gonzalez protocol f…
  5. The Compassionate Freedom of Choice Act: Ill-advised “right to try” goes federal
    Not too long ago, I expressed alarm at a series of bills that were popping up like so much kudzu in various state legislatures, namely “right to try” bills. Both Jann Bellamy and I warned that these bills gave a false illusion of hope to patients with terminal illnesses. Basically, these…
  6. An update on the case of Sarah Hershberger: Parental rights trump the right of a child with cancer to live
    Five weeks ago, when last I touched on the case of Sarah Hershberger, the now 11-year-old Amish girl from Medina County, Ohio near Akron with lymphoblastic lymphoma whose parents had taken her off of chemotherapy after only two rounds, reports had been coming out of the cancer quackery underground t…
  7. Yes, Chris beat cancer, but it wasn’t quackery that cured him
    Editor’s note: Due to technical difficulties, SBM experienced considerable downtime yesterday. I therefore decided to delay publishing this post until now. Harriet’s normally scheduled Tuesday post will also appear later. I like to think that one of the more important public services I p…
  8. Ask the (Science-Based) Pharmacist: What are the benefits of coffee enemas?
    How do you like your coffee? Rectally. It might not occur to you, sipping your morning coffee, that you could derive tremendous health benefits by simply shooting that coffee directly into your rectum. Yet many people believe this. Suzy Cohen, who calls herself, “America’s Pharmacist…
  9. “Alternative” cancer cures in 1979: How little things have changed
    Sometimes blogging topics arise from the strangest places. It’s true. For instance, although references to how tobacco causes cancer and the decades long denialist campaign by tobacco companies are not infrequently referenced in my blogging (particularly from supporters of highly dubious studi…
  10. Now that Burzynski has gotten off in 2012, Burzynski The Movie will spawn a sequel in 2013
    About a year ago, I became interested in a physician named Stanislaw Burzynski who has been treating cancer with compounds that he calls “antineoplastons” for over three decades without, in my opinion, ever having ever produced any compelling evidence that antineoplastons have significan…
