There’s weird and then there is weird.
Diet and excercise affecting cancer? Plausible.
Subluxations? Homeopathy? Delusional.
MDs selling self-branded supplements? Embarrassing.
Chelation and coffee enemas for kids with autism? Evil.
I believe you are the plausible wrapping paper surrounding a coalition of crazy, weird, embarrasing, and evil ideas that some want to “integrate” into the universal health care bill.
