This sounds really interesting and reminds me of Bad Science by Ben Goldacre, portions of which seem to have covered similar territory, judging by your review. Its definitely worth the read if you're interested.
A side note, Jenny McCarthy's views on vaccines and autism that the former causes the latter are dangerous and crazy. I don't like throwing that word around about someone I haven't met, but its really true. Goldacre talked about how she and former husband Jim Carrey among other high profile people have bought into that idea which has no basis in any sort of science and have pushed widely for its acceptance. This book looks like a good follow up to the Goldacre.
The list grows longer. Yep, Offit's book spends a full chapter detailing the views of Ms McCarthy's autism "research. Jul 28, PM. Author Paul Cantor is talking about the king and the Duke, in what seems like a perfect comment on Killing Us Softly: In their shameless impostures, they represent the dark side of all that is best in America, its spirit of enterprise. The range of this false expertise is indeed remarkable, as the king and the duke "master" science, technology, and medicine.
We are struck by their commitment to pseudo-sciences, such as mesmerism and phrenology, but their careers are a good reminder that it has always been difficult to separate real science from pseudo-science in free-wheeling America. Americans are perennial optimists, believing firmly that with freedom comes opportunity, and with opportunity comes progress and improvement. With enough effort, any problem can be solved, and, in particular, any disease can be cured. That is why Americans are so susceptible to the siren song of the medicine man. Democratic America has led the world in the development of modern medicine, but for that very reason it has also produced more than its share of medical quacks.
Free markets allow for a wide range of experiments in technology and medicine, but for every cure discovered, many false ones may be tried out. The hope of course is that the market will, over time, sort out the true cures from the false.
The comeuppance eventually suffered by the king and the duke is proof that you cannot fool all of the people all of the time. But still, their initial success as con men is a troubling by-product of the freedom America allows its citizens. Add a reference: Book Author.
