See John Oliver expose this industry and inoculate yourself against pseudo-scientific BS masquerading as legitimate research results.

[Vanity]
There are a number of new agey articles floating around the facebooks and internets promoting a very old concept called, "biocentrism", that existence is all subjective and the product of our own minds.

If you think the drugs you're taking are safe, you might not want to hear about this next story from the Wall Street Journal.

A prominent Massachusetts anesthesiologist allegedly fabricated 21 medical studies that claimed to show benefits from painkillers like Vioxx and Celebrex, according to the hospital where he worked.

Baystate Medical Center, Springfield, Mass., said that its former chief of acute pain, Scott S. Reuben, had faked data used in the studies, which were published in several anesthesiology journals between 1996 and 2008.

Add newly-elected Louisiana governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, to the short list of people who think "intelligent design" belongs in science class, despite virtually every scientist of any renown on the planet claiming creationism is not science.

Don't try to pass a salt shaker to John McCain. He won't take it from your hand because it's bad luck.

The Arizona senator also won't throw a hat on a bed — it means death will soon visit the household — but he regularly carries 31 cents in lucky change in his pocket.
