Quackwatch is a website dedicated to protecting the public. Can you trust what it says? No, you cannot.
Stephen Barrett, MD (born 1933) is a retired American psychiatrist, author, co-founder of the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), and the webmaster of Quackwatch. He runs a number of websites dealing with quackery and health fraud. He focuses on consumer protection, medical ethics, and scientific skepticism. Numerous sources have cited Quackwatch as a useful source for online consumer information.
If you subscribe to the establishment opinion that conventional modern pharmaceutical medicine and surgery exclusively offers quality healthcare to humanity, then you will find Mr. Barrett's opinions valuable. If, however, you disagree, you will find his opinions completely worthless.
Disease is the result of toxicity, deficiency and inactivity. Charlatans who cut, poison and burn are quacks. Psychiatrists are the worst, but they and their fellow quacks are not criticized at Quackwatch. Shun them. Choose a long wholesome life, sanity and spiritual health:
