You may or may not have heard in the news recently that Simon Singh (science journalist) has been sued by the British Chiropractic Association for saying:
The British Chiropractic Association claims that their members can help treat children with colic, sleeping and feeding problems, frequent ear infections, asthma and prolonged crying, even though there is not a jot of evidence. This organisation is the respectable face of the chiropractic profession and yet it happily promotes bogus treatments.
Now I can’t say anything about that more eloquently than Phil Plait already has done on his blog. Though I will say I heartily agree with Phil. I wish that the BCA had put forward evidence to support their claims rather than resorting to legal means.
After having read Phil’s post, if you wish to throw your support behind Simon, you can do so here.
