Pg97 Alternative Therapies
"If you wanted to design a disease that is a charlatan’s dream, you could not do better than MS. It is a chronic illness with long periods of remission and occasional relapses. The cause is un- known and the treatment is far from satisfactory. Therefore, if you happen to give somebody an alternative therapy just as the disease goes into remission, he or she will attribute the recovery to that treatment. If the treatment goes badly, you can blame the person for not using enough or the right type of your potion or diet, and proceed to the next level of “treatment.” Since the cause of the disease is unknown, even the most ludicrous theory can be given a surface plausibility by the glib."

  1. Thanks for posting this. This should join the PML Risk Guide as a stickied link along the side. It's definitely an essential read.

    Prof G and MDs - do you share the view of the author?
