Google provides me with the search terms that result in clicking on a link to this website. I rarely look at them, but today I looked to find all of the search terms that were pseudoscience examples – some of them were hysterical.
I wanted to do something completely different – away from the anti-vaccination hate-filled creeps, away from the anti-science GMO beliefs, and everything else. Let’s amuse ourselves with some of my favorite search terms over the past three months.
“colon cleanse poop pictures” – excuse me, but what?
“how much money does bill gates use to force vaccinations” – I would say approximately $0.
“dr mary’s monkey debunked” – I don’t personally debunk monkeys, but I’m sure someone does.
“what people look like who eat GMOs” – unless I’m missing something, we look like mutated monkeys who need to be debunked.
“alternative medicine is bullshit” – absolutely.
“paul offit paid by big pharma” – this is still around? The answer is no.
“is the skeptical raptor really orac” – oh not this again.
Medical pseudoscience examples
“what is better china acupuncture for bells palsy or neurologist doctor” – since acupuncture has no effect for bells palsy, let’s go with a neurologist.
“is mucoid plaque real” – absolutely not.
“do ripe bananas prevent cancer” – absolutely not. By the way, variations on this search are one of the top hits to my blog. People really believe a Facebook meme that bananas cure/prevent/treat cancer.
“medical medium quack” – anyone who thinks they can use psychic readings to diagnose or treat diseases is a quack.
“marijuana cures cancer” – this belief just won’t go away. And this is the number one search that leads to this website.
“big pharma conspiracy theory” – yes, they’re pushing against vaccines to make more money.
“glyphosate causes autism” – exactly how?
“does high fructose corn syrup cause autism” – everything causes autism!
“sayer ji quack” – without a doubt
“e cigarettes are safe for children” – what? I’m not even sure they’re safe for adults.
Vaccine pseudoscience examples
“which religions are against vaccines” – hardly any, so get your child vaccinated.
“is tetyana obukhanych a reliable source about vaccines” – that would be no.
“lucija tomljenovic dangers of vaccines” – if only her publications weren’t being retracted.
“is the hpv vaccine safe” – yes. Why is this still a question. Oh yea, see above.
“diane harper against the hpv vaccine” – based on her publications, no. Based on her public comments, who knows.
“vaccines cause mthfr gene mutation” – only if you believe quacks.
“consequences if children are not vaccinated” – well, they may die.
“who is behind the hpv vaccine conspiracy” – there’s a conspiracy? Well, then I take credit.
“do vaccines destroy my baby’s immune system” – if all I do with this website is debunk this one myth, I’ll be a happy scientist.
“did the polio vaccine cause cancer” – no, but that doesn’t stop this myth from propagating across the internet.
“vaccines and nazis” – I don’t even know how to respond but bang my head on the desk. Ouch.
“france stopped all vaccinations” – oh really?
“japan stopped hpv vaccines” – kind of, but based on awful evidence. And what are these tropes about other countries?
“who is heather murray” – no clue.
And it just keeps happening
“who is behind the real skeptical raptor” – lots of speculation, but I can assure you it’s not Barack Obama.
