DailyDirt: Cures To Whatever Ails You...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Medicine has improved a lot over the years, but there are still plenty of treatments out there that aren't based on evidence that they actually work. Some modern snake oils are backed up by technobabble worthy of a Star Trek episode, and others just appeal to "common sense" for justification. Here are a few quick links on some "reliable" medical treatments. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Cocaine is GREAT for flatulence and hysteria. I can't say much for the others.

    Re: home remedy

    There probably needs to be a double-blind control experiment to determine the effectiveness of cocaine against hysteria/flatulence.... :P

    what more do you want?

    As someone once said, "if you take a patent medicine that's 10% morphine, no matter what's wrong with you, you will feel better.

    Interesting. But i may follow a different approach

    In my opinion, consult an Expert before trying it. I also found another program and wanted to share here. The following program works 4 many but doesn't mean it'll work for u. But there is no harm in trying it. At least u r +ding something in yr life & not losing anything. https://healthpocket.weebly.com
