YANSS – Alternative Medicine

Given the way humans work, this episode of You Are Not So Smart probably won’t change the mind of anyone who’s deep into the alternative medicine world, but I think it’s important to listen to and strongly consider if you’re on the fence.

Key quotes to me:

“There’s a name for treatments that are proven to work. It’s called medicine”

Also (paraphrase)

“Alternative medicine is a ridiculous term like saying we should use Alternative Physics or Alternative Chemistry”

This podcast episode is a great medicine to the alt medicine’s recent media blitz; especially the part that opens with medical hucksters from cinema. At first I was upset that he’d forgotten Pete’s Dragon, but he mentioned it later on.
