Propaganda books
[back] Books revealing the medical conspiracy   Propaganda

[Few (some recent) classics to warrant a page to them--they must be feeling threatened, 5 in one year!  Only a bona fide pyjama person (or those dependent on the system 1) who feeds on the media pap would ever buy this junk--in the same vein as We Are Alone. Strange to tell but they often tell their ploy in their own titles.  One is for medical/health Suckers, and the other is a Misinformation (aka Counterknowledge/Propaganda) book, while Voodoo is just what Aaronovitch is offering!.  Now we have the False Vaccine  Prophet Dr, 100,000 vaccines, Offit.  Now more of the same from Ben Goldacre, the Chief defender of Bad Science on the net.  You couldn't make it up.]

[1952] Fads and Fallacies in the Name of Science by Martin Gardner
Gardner calls homeopathy and naturopathic medicine "world-wide medical cult(s)." Gardner also calls osteopathy a cult.  He finishes the chapter by calling chiropractic "the greatest of American medical follies."  In Chapter 17, titled "Medical Quacks," Gardner tells the story of Dinshah Ghadiali, from a point of view decidedly less sympathetic than the article I read.  Gardner also tells the story of Koch, telling his readers, "There is not the slightest doubt about the complete worthlessness of the 'Koch treatment'."  In the appendix of Fads and Fallacies, Gardner gives a brief review of the fates of Hoxsey, Ivy and Krebiozen.  Gardner candidly admits that the primary source for most of his chapter on medical cults was Morris Fishbein's Fads and Quackery in Healing

Unproven Methods in Cancer Management ---The American Cancer Society
Moss analyzed the credentials of those on the Unproven Methods list, and found that 77% of them have either M.D.s, often from major medical schools, or scientific doctorates.  Moss dryly summarizes the ACS position on the credentials of those on the black list, "Recall, however, that the ACS primer on unproven methods states that 'a few' hold M.D. or Ph.D. degrees; a few in this case is 77%."
