The FDA and HuffPo Alternative Quackery

FDA Alert
The FDA is alerting the public to be wary of Internet sites and other promotions for products that claim to diagnose, prevent, treat or cure the 2009 H1N1 flu virus. The agency also is advising offending websites to take prompt action to correct and/or remove promotions of these fraudulent products or face enforcement action.

And quack central, aka Huffinton Post, is responding with this:

Author's note: This swine flu story on alternative and complementary medicine is not meant to replace anything you hear from you doctor, the WHO or the CDC, but is meant to show you some natural ways to enhance your overall wellness in addition to any medication you may need either to prevent or treat the flu.

PalMD reports: Shit wrapped in gold foil smells just the same as shit in a brown bag tied with twine.

Respectful Insolence has also weighed in on the subject.

If you see a disclaimer like the one above at your doctor's office turn and run. Can you imagine? Doctors note: The advice I dispense is not meant to replace that of your Homeopath, or other "alternative medicine" practitioner. I want your money but no responsibility for any bad advice I give you.
