Tweets from Edzard Ernst

Edzard Ernst is one of the world’s foremost enemies of all things CAM. He is relentless in criticizing the pseudoscience that is used to bolster the unfounded claims. Just recently, he had some fun on his twitter stream labelling the quacks.

All of the following come from his Twitter stream, some by him and some by others.:

  •  The acupuncturist = the needle in the healthcare-haystack
  • The spiritual with his healing hands = The grabber of the healthcare family
  • The homeopath = Delusional threat to human life
  • The homeopath = the clown of the healthcare family
  • The iridologist = the fantastic of the healthcare family
  • The colon irrigationist = the plumber of the heathcare family
  • The Gerson therapist = the sadist of the healthcare family
  • The herbalist = the naturalist of the healthcare family
  • The reiki-healer = the enery waster of the healthcare family
  • The aromatherapist = the nose of the healthcare family
  • The chiropractor = the lumber jack of the healthcare family
  • The acupuncturist = the needle in the healthcare-haystack

Not quite the same as above, but worthy of honourable mention, especially if you are looking for bumper sticker material.

Unfortunately chiropractic has only ever worked on my Lego pirates.

Homeopathy: making no difference since 1796!
