Interwebs BS

The internet is full of BS. People write articles that seem scientific, but don't provide any scientific evidence. Instead they try to "seem creditable" by throwing in as much degree names (a Ph.D. here, an MD there...) and celebrity names in the article.

Yet it is just human nature to believe what they want to believe, instead of what's supported by hard evidence. Though it is surprising to realize that some of your extremely bright friends are among those psudo-science believers, too.
