Ask the scienticians

Salon takes on the fuzzy science of Huffington Post's "Living" section:
This spring, during the swine flu outbreak, I was searching the Web for news when a blog post on the Huffington Post caught my eye. Titled "Swine Flu: Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones," its author, Kim Evans, offered a unique prescription for swine flu, one she believed could "save your life": deep-cleansing enemas.
Suffice it to say, enemas don't offer anything in the way of protection from influenza. This isn't the first time HuffPo and "wellness" editor have been criticized from promoting bunk science.
