Dear Orac,

It’s Jenny!

Please join my team and help other families!

I’m about to go on tour to promote my new book, Mother Warriors, which hits the bookstores everywhere, September 23rd (38 days from now!). I will also be on all the major talk shows showing the world that autism is reversible and thousands of families will be coming to Generation Rescue for help. This is your chance to help other families.

If you are part of a family who has a child that benefited from biomedical interventions and you have the desire to help other families start the recovery process, join Generation Rescue as a Rescue Angel today!

Rescue Angel Requirements:

1.) You are a family who has benefited from biomedical interventions.
2.) You are willing to volunteer your time to share your story and help other families learn about biomedical treatments.
3.) You will make yourself available to families in need by email or by phone? (your choice) for approximately 4 hours per week.

Sadly, it looks as though September is shaping up to be a very, very bad month when it comes bubble brained actresses pushing pseudoscience. First, there was Suzanne Somers and her dubious stem cell service, but that will pale in comparison to Jenny McCarthy and her autism quackery book. It looks like it’s going to be a long, painful fall for advocates of scientific medicine. On the other hand, we in the skeptical blogosphere need to get ready to counter the lies, pseudoscience, quackery, and other misinformation about vaccines, so-called “biomedical treatments,” and autism that will surely be coming from Jenny straight to a magazine, radio station, or TV near you.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
