What's the Harm Shout Out!

My friend Tim Farley has an awesome site - What's the Harm that I've talked about in the past. He's spent many months sifting through articles, sites and submissions and gathering data into a big database about the specific, real dangers of pseudoscience and false claims.

Today, ABC News did a story on Tim and his site. It's a pretty good read, although they were a little lightweight about it, focussing a bit too much on the vegetarian side of things.

But it's so good to see coverage for skepticism! Yay Tim! If you haven't already, go check out the site and the next time you come across a story where someone was hurt or killed or financially impacted by pseudoscience or some other form of 'woo', send Tim a link to the info - he'll appreciate it.
