Australian Skeptics | Science, Medicine and Alternative Medicines |Paranormal and pseudo-scientific claims

Science Based Medicine (UK) They claim ” Exploring issues and controversies in the relationship between science and medicine. Science-Based Medicine is dedicated to evaluating medical treatments and products of interest to the public in a scientific light, and promoting the highest standards and traditions of science in health care. Online information about alternative medicine is overwhelmingly credulous and uncritical, and even mainstream media and some medical schools have bought into the hype and failed to ask the hard questions.”

Australian Skeptics They say “is a loose confederation of groups across Australia that investigate paranormal and pseudo-scientific claims from a responsible scientific viewpoint. Most people are familiar with the more popular subjects that we investigate such as astrology, fortune telling, UFOs and crop circles; But did you know that we also investigate topics like fundamentalism, Feng Shui, subluxations and vitamin supplements? … Test your sceptical knowledge and see how many of the topics on our list are familiar to you.”
