Today is the American Thanksgiving holiday and SBM is taking the day off. Speaking of thanks, thank you to all of our readers and to those of you who take time to comment. Thanks to all of you who patiently explain to a neighbor why homeopathy does not (and cannot) work, complain to your pharmacy about its selling dubious dietary supplements, warn a friend about the dangers of chiropractic neck manipulation, refuse the reiki “treatment” at your local hospital (and explain why), write to your state representative opposing naturopathic licensing, stand up for vaccination, and for all the myriad other ways you support the rational application of science to health care.
