From the Editor

This month, we feature an article by Stephen Barrett, MD, warning readers about alternative health methods. With the proliferation of products crowding the market, consumers will need to carefully separate the effective medicines and methods from the unproven. We will look into different subject areas that may be of interest to our readers and will reprint articles about these in the future.

Chairman David is back with his wry look at the media’s treatment of pseudoscientific and paranormal topics in his "REALLity Check." I also have included some additional sources of information in this newsletter that may be of interest to you.

Don’t miss May’s REALL meeting featuring Dr. Michael Shermer, director of the Skeptics Society and publisher of Skeptic magazine talking about peoples’ beliefs in "weird things." (For more information about the talk, see the announcement on the back of the newsletter.) We look forward to seeing you at the special meeting.
