This guy is a whackjob. He's paid by pharmaceutical companies and has ties to the FDA to debunk anything and everything alternative.

Quackwatch is one man who runs the website from his basement.

He claims he does it to protect the public from being harmed, but you will not find one article by him protecting the public from harmful pharmaceutical drugs that have killed people. He only goes after alternative medicine, and of course he's all IDSA, too.

The man is a nutter. He is a failed psychiatrist who could never pass the test to be certified to practice medicine.

He's pretty old by now. Gotta be in his 80's.

This is a great explanation about that quack who runs the site:

It explains it very well.

Tim Bolen keeps an eye on the REAL quack, Barrett. Great website to follow as Tim Bolen exposes the hypocrisy of Barrett and shows how he's in the pockets of Big Pharma.

It's surprising how many government organizations support quackwatch. Look up quackwatch on Wikipedia, it's depressing.

My husband is a chiropractor. Of course he is joking, but he talks about how it would be a badge of honor to get on quack watch because so many things on there are definitely not quack.
