Oh man did I piss my friend off once. He made me a cheese sandwich and it taste awful. I told I thought that it was bad, because it was not Velveeta on Wonder Bread fried up in a pan with a half a stick of butter used for each slice of bread. Apparently he had used real expensive cheese, and bread, lightly toasted in an oven and served it with some kind of fancy tomato soup, a recipe he got out of a gourmet cookbook.

It propably tasted great to people who have taste, but I grew up on Wonder Bread, Velveeta deep fried in butter and by god that is what a cheese sandwich should taste like.

I did an article for a physician's magazine a good 10 years ago; the gist being the frustration when a patient comes in with a few e-mails that got forwarded and they wanted ANSWERS. I talked with one such patient who was horrified to hear that aspartame creates formaldehyde and formalin in the digestive system.

I said yes, it's true: Aspartame creates formaldehyde and formalin in the digestive tract -- Because both compounds are naturally occuring by-products. If fact, if you eat a fresh banana you will produce far more formalin and formaldehyde than you will with a diet soda.

Enigmamf: andynz81: I wouldn't worry about this, but as for the more well known allegations about aspartame...

When my sister got a brain tumour, her oncologists went over diet, lifestyle etc, and had little to say as she was by and large living a perfectly healthy life. They did tell her to avoid aspartame though.

Must be pretty good fearmongering if it has also sucked in oncologists.

/more inclined to side with the oncologists, strangely enough

I don't care who you are, if you can't back up your belief with a review of the medical literature (and I don't mean cherry-picking a single study, I mean evaluating the consensus of standard of care established by relevant specialties), then you're no better than someone babbling about neoplasteons.

It's very difficult to be a commoner in this world, relying on the expertise of others about advise that can have a huge effect on our lives. But in this internet era, and especially with the dawning of the age of Open Access, that doesn't mean you have to take everything your doctor says without question, like some neolithic cowering from the spell of a shaman.


Damn straight.  Here's a short list of people who have doctorates in some way and are also major quacks:

Neal Barnard, MD (Medical adviser to PETA; believes vegan-ism can literally cure diabetes)
Stanislaus Burzynski, MD, PhD (Runs a clinic which purports to cure cancer; has been in Stage 1 clinical trials for 20+ years, and is facing multiple federal investigations).
Deepak Chopra, MD (Known as the "King of Quacks," this guy believes you can use quantum theory to magically change your destiny and life; from his own book, "[You can] use the power of quantum healing to transcend disease and aging.")
Jay Gordon, MD (This is the anti-vax queen's - Jenny McCarthy - pediatrician. He is also anti-vax)
Steven F. Hotze, M.D. (Believes that drugs can't cure disease because "diseases are not caused by a deficiency in pharmaceuticals")
Gary Null, PhD (He promotes megavitamin doses for a healthy living; almost died taking his own product which he still sells)
Memhet Oz, MD (TV show host; he promotes lots of pseudoscience and quackery on his show as if they were legitimately backed by science)
Robert Sears, MD (Anti-vax popularizer, he has written multiple books which spread myths and falsehoods about vaccines)
Andrew Wakefield, MD (This is the guy who made Vaccines-Causes-Autism movement popular worldwide via his fake research and fudged data)
Andrew Weil, MD (Self described as the "guru of alternative medicine," this guy uses his credentials to spread misinformation and lies about science and medicine).
Jordan Weiss, MD (uses "information learned from the 4th dimension" to perform "psychoenergetics" and energy healing in his practice)

I have tons more of these.  There are plenty of people who gain advanced degrees and then use their degrees and prestige to spread lies and misinformation.  Some of them are con men, some are true believers.  All of them disregard everything they have been taught about science and the scientific method in order to spread their lies.
