I just wanted to make sure psople were aware of this extremely useful site

http://www.quackwatch.org/index.html

I would highly recommend using it as a "filter" to protect yourself from being scammed.

Take care.[/url]

quackwatch still requires judgment

Problem is that you have one person saying this is good and this is bad without showing how they got there. Under MS, I see vitamin D listed. Well, folks, many of us know that Vitamin D isn't a cure, but we also know that Vitamin D is highly supported in the medical literature.

Don't accept opinions unless you read up behind them to see what supports them. You'll often find bamboo instead of feroconcrete. Ken

No website should be taken without a grain of salt. However, just to add more confusion to this thread, the poster of the negative info on QuackWatch, actually is involved with MLM of a "product" of the type that would most likely feature on QuackWatch.

The comments regarding the validity of double blind studies I think makes it clear what the aim of the post is.
