Mercola Slapped

Dr. Joseph Mercola got hit with a letter dated March 22, 2011 regarding his sale and promotion of the Meditherm Med2000 Telethermographic camera. See, Mercola makes claims that are unsupported and unwarranted, and the FDA doens't like that. The letter, in part, says:
The FDA requests that you immediately cease making claims, identical or similar to those described above, for this product. You should take prompt action to correct these violations. Failure to correct these violations promptly may result in the initiation of regulatory action by the Food and Drug Administration without further notice. These actions include, but are not limited to seizure, injunction, and/or civil money penalties.
He was required to reply in writing within 15 days, but I'm not sure if he did or not. I don't really care, the point is that Mercola, totally unsurprisingly to anyone who follows the "alt.med" weirdos and charlatans, made unsupported claims about medicine to sell a device. He makes money while the people he scams are...well, just like I said, scammed.

Dr. Joseph Mercola - another alt.douchebag.

Thanks for Nothing, "Psychics"

This poor kid, Adam Benhamma, has been missing since Sunday, April 3rd and is now presumed dead. Police think he likely fell in a river.

Benhamma was autistic and deaf which, police say, obviously complicated search efforts due to the child's inability to respond to calls from family and responders. It's a horribly tragic situation and I feel for the dad who just ducked inside for a second, apparently, while his seven year old daughter watched the three year old Adam.

So, if psychics are real (which they're not), this would have been the perfect opportunity to display their talents and save the life of a three year old special needs child. Surprise. They didn't.

If you think you're psychic, there's an easy answer: you're not. Win the lottery or shut the fuck up.
