Oh no! Guest thinks I'm clueless! If only I cared...

Anyway, we're over this now, right? Everyone's had their good, hard cry, Dogen is a big mean man, pouty face, and we move on? Good.

I'm sensitive to things that matter. Internet dick measuring isn't one of those things.

Yes!

So my sister is a naturopathic physician... After lots of practice we only talk about nutrition.

Not so much a defense of science as the dismissal of a need for one

It was here we were talking about the placebo effect wasn't it?

Really fascinating article:

http://www.wired.com/medtech/drugs/magazine/17-09/ff_placebo_effect?currentPage=1

The placebo effect is now as powerful, and in some cases, more powerful than commonly used painkilling and psychiatric drugs. Largely due to the uniquitous marketing of over-the-counter and prescription medication. The main pharmaceuticals are now funding massive trials of the placebo effect to find out how it is stimulated.

Alternative medicine that is becoming medicine. Smile

The fact that taking a faux drug can powerfully improve some people's health—the so-called placebo effect—has long been considered an embarrassment to the serious practice of pharmacology.

What?

Stuff like this is why I stopped reading Wired.

If that is a mash-up of ubiquitous with iniquitous then that is an excellent and highly appropriate word.
