Skeptical Inquirer Counters Doctor-Bashing Clichés

The November/December issue of Skeptical Inquirer is out, and it features a handy and unvarnished rebuttal of common attacks on doctors and “Western medicine” made by the proponents of alt-med. Renowned skeptic and former Air Force flight surgeon Harriet Hall chooses 44 dubious arguments against science-based medicine (such as “doctors are in the pocket of Big Pharma,” and “doctors ignore the whole person in favor of treating symptoms”) and picks them apart with concision and wit. The new issue also is on newsstands and in app stores now!
