Description
In the 19th century, quack remedies were hawked at street-corner medicine shows to gullible buyers. Today they are sold via electronic media, often by celebrities promoting questionable products and advice. The market for nostrums thrives in an atmosphere of hype and pseudoscience, as 21st century consumers swallow both preposterous claims and cure-all elixirs, shelved alongside genuinely useful items. Who knows what actually works? What's the difference between science-based medicine and everything else? This book examines the misinformation and fear-mongering behind modern-day snake oil.
