Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

  1. I don't understand this post at all? This technology is proven, this company is prominenet, and this process has helped tens of thousands of people around the world. Check it out for yourself ( So I guess my response to this post is ---- Really?

  2. Thank you for the link. I have just looked at the research section of that site. Most illuminating, and amusing.

    The matter is currently being investigated.

    Didn't find anything published from Gerdes and Singh in PubMed either... perhaps I missed it.


Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
