Medical blog now online

I’m pleased to tell my readers that a new skeptically-based medical blog is now online: Science Based Medicine. It has five bloggers, all MDs, posting regularly one day a week. Skeptics will be familiar with two names on the blogger list: Steve Novella, from The Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast, and my friend Harriet Hall, the SkepDoc, who has long been a friend of real medicine (and who tried valiantly to make me feel better when I was attacked by a particularly vicious norovirus during a visit to Seattle).

The attacks on real science by antiscience forces is nowhere more important than in the health field, and SBM’s pentavirate of doctors will take an unflinching look at this particular flavor of evil. Set your bookmarks and feed readers!
