David and Goliath, the Bad Science edition: Ben Goldacre posts a blog post on a programme on London's LBC radio station, in which the presenter Jeni Bartlett fulminates at length on how the MMR vaccine causes autism and 'doctors are there to scare us'. It might have ended there, but perhaps scared of the man who caused Dr Gillian McKeith to be stripped of her medical title, the billion-pound company are now threatening to sue the NHS doctor for hosting the show on his site.

Even if it's a double, I'm glad to know about this Gillian McKeith:

She talks endlessly about chlorophyll, for example: how it's "high in oxygen" and will "oxygenate your blood"

She says DNA is an anti-ageing constituent: if you "do not have enough RNA/DNA", in fact, you "may ultimately age prematurely". Stress can deplete your DNA, but algae will increase it
