God of the week: Sheela Na Gigs, AKA “the old hag of the breasts”
Guest: Dentist Grant Ritchey! We discuss some BS about root canals thanks to Joseph Mercola, what makes for effective science communication, and asked him why dentists always try to talk to us when they have their hands in our mouths.
Quote of the week: “The very concept of alternative medicine exists to create a double standard where the rules of science and evidence are stood on their head specifically to manufacture the result that is desired by cranks, charlatans, snake oil salesmen, and self-proclaimed gurus. There is no alternative medicine. There is just medicine. Either it works or it doesn’t.” – Steven Novella
