psst... quackwatch is quackery.. pass it on!

My letter to the creator of Quackwatch

Dear Stephen Barrett...

Re: Your Quackwatch site and all the other sites you are connected to.

Just as anyone who is seeking information about alternative treatments may stumble upon your "quackwatch" site. If they continue their search they can also find what just a quack you are.

I enjoyed reading the below and I hope you got a chance to as well.

"At trial, under a heated cross-examination by Negrete, Barrett conceded that he was not a Medical Board Certified psychiatrist because he had failed the certification exam. "

"This was a major revelation since Barrett had provided supposed expert testimony as a psychiatrist and had testified in numerous court cases. Barrett also had said that he was a legal expert even though he had no formal legal training."

"The most damning testimony before the jury, under the intense cross-examination by Negrete, was that Barrett had filed similar defamation lawsuits against almost 40 people across the country within the past few years and had not won one single one at trial."

"During the course of his examination, Barrett also had to concede his ties to the AMA, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Food & Drug Administration (FDA)."

Another great one shows everyone where you come up with your quackery, in your home in Allentown Pennsylvania... better hope they don't get your address!

Oh and this bit too... "Stephen Barrett is now delicensed (he voluntarily gave up his Pennsylvania medical license, the last of four medical licenses he once held, in the early 1990’s) and the Vice President of the NCAHF. He also operates at least 20 websites affiliated with his main site, The website and its affiliate web sites are seemingly designed to spread deceitful, untruthful and malicious propaganda about chiropractic and other non-conventional health practices; similar to the way the CCHI did under the auspices of the AMA. NCAHF is also involved in similar activities. In addition, Barrett and his groups also frequently consult for major media magazines, television, radio, governmental agencies such as the FBI, FTC and FDA and even the AMA."

The moral of my email to you is... SHAME ON YOU Stephen Barrett!

The universe will bring you what is yours.... it's called KARMA.

And I will do my part to create awareness about what a Quack you are.
I will send this email to everyone I know...
and I hope that who ever else is reading this will do the same.

Now I feel good about my day.

Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing!
