Learning this gives me hope for the future of skepticism in our society. While there are plenty of wooly-headed fuzzy thinkers out there who believe in crap like Therapeutic Touch, an eleven-year-old girl was able to construct and execute a double-blind test that proved it was nothing but bullshit. (A phrase that enjoys academic validity.)
Hat tip to the incredibly funny but sadly slowly-updated Crap-Based Medicine. And kudos to the little girl who stood up to some adults with a lot of money to lose and exposed them for the frauds they are.
