(256): Snake Oil Science: All Alternative Medicine is Reducible to the Placebo Effect
Betta Tryptophan

Irony of ironies, have you ever noticed MDs generally give you two bits of scientific wisdom:

  1. Herbal medicine doesn’t work.
  2. Don’t take herbal medicine in combination with this prescription.

Hmmmm. If it’s a placebo, I might as well be eating lettuce. If it can mess with a prescription, it must have an effect. So which is it?

Some science.
