Result! Quacks fleeing for the hills

Ha ha, brilliant. The chiropracters (quacks who believe manipulation of the spine can cure all ills) are running scared. It seems their libel win against Simon Singh for calling them ‘bogus’ (won due to Britain’s absurdly generous libel laws) is now rebounding on them big-time.

As a result of a grassroots campaign, it seems chiropracters up and down the UK are taking down their ‘Dr’ placards and lists of ailments they claim to ‘cure’ – in other words, no longer making claims that can’t be supported by evidence. And there’s a good chance that the UK’s libel laws will be changed as a result of this and other cases, too. Result!
