@ anticultist *slap*
You know that a CTer would have rejected the same article because it's published by chemo pushers who are paid off by Big Pharma.

And if you don't want to read SAY SOMETHING so I don't run around in circles here. *double slap*

@Ed... don't get me started on the anti-vaccine idiots.

There's a distinct difference between the disclaimers found on medical sites and the disclaimers found on alt-med sites. The ones on medical sites are pretty standard disclaimers and usually found on a page for that. The ones found on alt-med sites are in your face, repeated often and encompass pretty much any way in which they could possibly be sued.

Yes, they usually read something like this.
"The information in ____________________'s Web site is not intended as a substitute for medical professional help or advice but is to be used only as an aid in understanding current medical knowledge. A physician should always be consulted for any health problem or medical condition."

I was just confused. If you read the article you can see it for yourself, there is no legal disclaimer out in the open. It's in a link at the very bottom of the page, the same place most medical sites put them. Now I'm interested in looking at an alt-med site just to see as I can't remember ever seeing one.
