"Dr. Helmut Prahl says that his drugs stop the progression of PLS. Are his claims true? ... Bright red fraud flags went up in my mind when you told me how to pay for your drug. Few legitimate mail-order businesses refuse credit cards, and none accept cash only. I wondered whether you wanted to avoid a paper trail linking you to the C-3036, or increasing your reportable income, or both. I ignored the red fraud flags. I was desperate. Traditional medicine offered me no hope, and a depressing prognosis. I prepared to go to my bank's nearest cash machine to obtain the cash. First I told my wife where I was going. She stopped me. My wife is a physician. We talked about your drug and what you had told me. After much discussion over a lengthy period I ultimately decided not to buy your drug. I did nothing more."

"In this article, I will first list some of these evidential flaws and then discuss errors in relating evidence to theory. Of necessity, this is a short list that omits most such problems.

Finally, I will discuss when mere mistakes (which plague every research direction) turn into quackery."

"The purpose of this web site is to provide links and information, stimulate debate and exchange ideas regarding healthcare, health fraud, quackery, alternative medicine, metaphysics, religion, etc. I hope that you will be able to find something of interest here. If you're seeking a comprehensive, well-balanced presentation of all sides of an issue, you'll possibly be disappointed. The believ-ers, quacks, salesmen and the sincerely deceived are already out there with their message. Their side of the story is easy to find."
