Bill O’Reilly who targeted Dr. George Tiller now cries about character assassination

Fox has settled sexual assault suits against Bill O’Reilly.  This is fact. Another woman has come forward with similar claims and there is chatter that O’Reilly’s reign at Fox could be coming to and end. O’Reilly is outraged. These claims are apparently false and tantamount to character assassination!   Let those words sink in and … Continue reading

GOOP wants you to drink activated charcoal chai. Here’s why it’s crap.

Activated charcoal is one of the latest “wellness” trend and by wellness I mean things that charlatans want you to buy that have no hope of helping you. So yes my friends that leads us directly to GOOP and their latest installment in medical stupidity, activated charcoal chai. This concept is so medical inept I hardly … Continue reading

Washington Post embraces alternative facts on adrenal fatigue, fuels death of expertise epidemic

Adrenal fatigue does not exist and by this I mean board certified endocrinologists say that adrenal glands can’t be exhausted or over worked. Internal organs don’t fatigue, it would be a pretty poor evolutionary design if they did. Early Homo sapiens had just a little more stress than we do in 2017, so if adrenals … Continue reading

A chunky, white discharge is not a sign of a yeast infection. Really.

If you pick up a GYN textbook the section on candida vaginitis, i.e. yeast infections, will undoubtedly begin with a description of the supposedly classic symptom of a chunky white discharge (which does sound a bit like a punk rock band name). Ask almost any gynecologist who hasn’t been trained by me and you will … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP hatch limited edition vaginal Easter eggs

Fresh off the roaring success of their harmful yet expensive vaginal jade eggs Paltrow and her flock at GOOP have hatched limited edition vaginal Easter eggs. They are sure to hop off the shelves so don’t delay. Can’t choose between jaunty jaune or robin blue? Just ask yourself what would the High Priestess of Worried … Continue reading

Another study shows no link between HPV vaccine and autoimmune diseases

Some critics of the HPV vaccine claim it can cause autoimmune disease and describe this as a reason for vaccine hesitancy. The specter of the “Gardasil girls.” young women with bizarre, ill-defined symptoms (often described as autoimmune or autoimmune disease-like) attributed to the HPV vaccine fills the Internet and many parents searching for information on HPV … Continue reading

Rex Tillerson too fatigued to prevent nuclear war?

Several outlets are reporting that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who is  64 years old, had to cut his diplomatic mission short in Korea due to fatigue. As as doctor I find this concerning. This is his second trip and it is already too exhausting? Is he acutely ill? Does he have a health condition … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t have adrenal fatigue because it doesn’t exist

Gwyneth Paltrow has been on a PR push because she is so “effing tired” and wants everyone to know that she has found the cause of her mysterious ailment, adrenal fatigue, and you too can apparently cure/prevent this by buying her carefully curated supplements for $90 a month. I know I said I was going on … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow’s goat milk therapy for parasites is stupid and dangerous

Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest woo slinger wants you to believe that not only are you infected with parasites, but that parasites cause almost every illness known to human kind. In fact, they cause every single symptom. Gwyneth is already on board shilling her parasite voodoo in Women’s Health, but apparently she wants to cover all her crazy … Continue reading

If Gwyneth Paltrow is so effing tired maybe she shouldn’t put jade eggs in her vagina

Gwyneth Paltrow is on the cover of Women’s Health, a magazine I shall now refer to as Woman’s Woo or Woman’s Unhealth, and of course the accompanying article contains a lot of Ms. Paltrow’s ridiculous and potentially harmful health claims. Paltrow, however, is not bothered what anyone who might actually know about medicine thinks because … Continue reading
