Chiropractic Quacks Pretending to be Medical Doctors

January 5, 2020 // 1 Comment

Chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s quackery of the purest kind, yet its proponents would have you believe that chiropractors are part of the medical community and thus have the authority to give out medical advice. In reality, they are not; they are people who have wasted a large portion of their life studying either the ramblings of a quack and his spooky ghost friend, or a technique of pain management, which, time and time again, has been shown to be ineffective. Either way, studying [...]

The Secret that “Dr” Joseph Cipriano Doesn’t Want You to Know

December 28, 2019 // 3 Comments

A lot of people don’t know this, but chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s pure hocus pocus, that at its very best is a technique of pain management that time and time again, it’s been shown to be ineffective, with most credible research putting it on a par with a good massage. Yet, despite these well-documented facts, chiropractic adjustment remains a $15-billion industry, with the largest number of chiropractors (approximately 75,000 of them) found in the United States. There, this [...]

A lot of people don’t know this, but chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s pure hocus pocus, that at its very best is a technique of pain management that time and time again, it’s been shown to be ineffective, with most credible research putting it on a par with a good massage. Its origins are in the ramblings of a literal snake-oil-salesman, who convinced people that his spooky ghost friend told him that manual therapy, especially spinal manipulation therapy, restores your body’s [...]

Chiropractic: Quackery Hiding in Plain Sight

August 11, 2019 // 8 Comments

Chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s quackery of the purest kind dreamt up by a snake-oil salesman who claimed he was told from beyond the grave that manual therapy, especially spinal manipulation therapy, restores your body’s “innate intelligence”, curing all of your ailments. There is no scientific evidence that it can restore or maintain health, and only lukewarm evidence that it can help with lower back pain, with most credible research putting it on par with a good massage.

Debunking Chemtrails – Depopulation & the Space Preservation Act – #3

September 22, 2017 // 1 Comment

An interesting conspiracy theory that has grown in popularity over the last decade is the belief that the long-lasting white clouds left in the sky by aircraft are actually chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed on the population for nefarious reasons. The people who believe in this conspiracy theory call these lines in the sky ‘chemtrails’ and feel so strongly against them that back in May of this year, they organised protests around the world. In an attempt to better [...]

Larry Cook and Chiropractic Adjustment

May 4, 2014 // 2 Comments

I have discovered over the past three years here on the internet that I have a very high tolerance to bullshit. I can watch videos featuring creationists, 911 truthers or flat Earthers and I won’t rase an eyebrow. However, when it comes to videos promoting dangerous medical advice, I lose my cool and nothing gets under my skin more than people promoting chiropractic adjustment to children. The false-hope peddler Larry Cook has several such videos, however one named ‘For Best Relief, [...]

The Story Behind Being Drugless?

January 16, 2013 // 10 Comments

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah In the style of Ben Goldacre, Dr Bob, or to give his full medical title, ‘Bob’ has been the subject of one of my latest articles. It turns out that the good ‘doctor’ got his qualifications from the National University of Health Science and Clayton College, in Chiropractic and Natural Health respectively. For some reason, he thinks that with these non-medical ‘qualifications’ he is authorised to give out medical advice. [...]
