Oz and others

 http://www.weightymatters.ca/2014/04/guest-post-on-cbc-homeopaths-are-now.html

got me going. Homeopaths are professionals. Is anyone an expert?

Having looked at the research on diet, foods, obesity, diabetics and statins, I will say say that the medical community need to do a bit of housecleaning before is can separate experts from professionals. The doctors do not have 100% correct proven information and then there are the medical treatment guidelines to screw the issue further. http://1boringoldman.com/index.php/2014/04/10/something-really-hude/

By professionals, I mean people who make their living from there skills, and by experts, I mean people who know everything about their thin wedge of area. The problem is that most human subjects are beyond any one's area of expertise.

Oz is a professional entertainer, and was a professional doctor. He presents people and information, some of which is wrong, but it is up to the audience to sort out fact from fiction. If not Oz, replace with anyone, all is opinion anyway.

The medical community understands that the money is in the treatment, not curing all the problems and identifying all the causes in a way that is useful in avoiding the problems. Just cure the ones that we have real cures for, and treat the remainder for cash or research and hope a cures is found.

But what do I know.
