  1. Medicine past, present, and future: Star Trek versus Dr. Kildare and The Knick
    I’ve been a big Star Trek fan ever since I first discovered reruns of the original Star Trek episodes in the 1970s, having been too young (but not by much!) to have caught the show during its original 1966-1969 run. True, my interest waxed and waned through the years—for instance, I loved Star …
  2. “Atavistic oncology” revisited: Dr. Frank Arguello responds
    EDITOR’s NOTE: There are three Addendums after this post, containing the complete text of e-mails. EDITOR’s NOTE #2 (8/19/14 4:51 PM): There is one more Addendum, as Dr. Arguello has sent me another e-mail. EDITOR’s NOTE #3 (8/20/14 7:18 PM): There is yet another Addendum, as Dr. …
  3. Medical marijuana as the new herbalism, part 2: Cannabis does not cure cancer
    About a month ago, I finally wrote the post I had been promising to write for months before about medical marijuana. At the time, I also promised that there would be follow-up posts. Like Dug the Dog seeing a squirrel, I kept running into other topics that kept me from revisiting the topic. However…
  4. Dr. Frank Arguello’s “atavistic oncology”: Another dubious cancer therapy to be avoided
    EDITOR’S NOTE: Dr. Arguello has responded. See his response and my reply here. Not infrequently, I’m asked why it is that I do what I do. Why do I spend so many hours of my free time, both here and at my not-so-super-secret other blog (NSSSOB), to write my detailed analyses of various forms …
  5. How “they” view “us” revisited: Mike Adams goes off the deep end
    This post might look familiar to some of you who know me from what I like to call my not-so-secret other blog (NSSSOB). However, what happened last week was important enough that I wanted to make sure that it was covered on SBM, just as Steve Novella covered it on his own blog on Friday. (Fear not,…
  6. John Oliver skewers Dr. Oz for his hawking of diet supplements
    As regular readers of this blog know, Dr. Mehmet Oz had a very, very bad day last week, in which he received a major tongue lashing from Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) for the scientifically unsupported and irresponsible hyperbole he dishes out day after day on his syndicated daytime television sho…
  7. 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…
  8. How “they” view “us”
    Over the weekend, I was perusing my Google Alerts, along with various blogs and news websites, looking for my weekly topic, when I noticed a disturbance in the pseudoscience Force. It’s a phenomenon I’ve noticed many times before, but, as far as I can tell, I haven’t actually blogg…
  9. 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…
  10. Gluten-free skin and beauty products: Extracting cash from the gullible
    Even though yesterday was Easter, and, as unreligious as I am, I was still thinking of taking it easy, there was one target that popped up that I just couldn’t resist. My wife and I were sitting around yesterday reading the Sunday papers and perusing the Internet (as is frequently our wont …
