If It Sounds Like a Quack A Journey to the Fringes of American Medicine (EPUB)
By Matthew Hongoltz-Hetling
Looking for affordable alternatives to traditional medicine? In this book, Pulitzer Prize finalist Matthew Hongoltz-Hetling explores the world of fringe medicine, where non-traditional treatments are becoming increasingly mainstream. Join him on a bizarre journalistic journey filled with leeches, baking soda IVs, and even alleged zombies. Meet medical freedom advocates, including an international leech smuggler, a gold miner-turned health drink salesman, and a man who claims to be able to turn people into zombies with aerosol spray. Can these businesses gain the support and approval of the government to take their enterprise to the next level? Is the government responsible for dictating what is medicine and what is not? Should we have public health when disagreements over science are this profound? If It Sounds Like a Quack addresses these critical questions and more, while tracing how we got to this unconventional moment and pondering where we go from here. Buckle up for a bumpy ride…unless you’re against seatbelts.
