Bad Science Is Quite Funny

Reporting on a Revolution [2011-09-12 12:37:00]   recommend this post  (260 visits)
I am enjoying reading Bad Science by Ben Goldacre. As the back cover promises it offers relief from scaremongering journalists, pill pushing nutritionists, flaky statistics and evil pharmaceutical corporations. I should add homeopathy to the list. [...]
