“Dr” Gillian McKeith – bad science bites her in the rectum

The Garudian has a fabulous piece on the recent ASA announcement that “Dr” Gillian McKeith has been misleading the populace by using the title “Doctor” in her advertising.

Ben Goldacre pretty much spells out how ludicrous some of her science is.

She’s pretty convincing on the TV, but to the scientific community she’s a laughing stock. I’m sure some of her advice is good common-sense stuff but when it’s not backed by good science then you really have to wonder how she can get away with some of the things she is saying.

I shall not be following her advice, no matter how sticky and smelly my poo is.

Thanks to Gary for finding this one
