Anyone seen this dangerous new magazine out now in WHSmith? It is promoting psudoscience over real medicine and scaring peple away from real docters, which in result can put peoples lives at risk by choosing quack treatments instead of visiting their genuine medical docter and recieving effective medical treatment.

Speak out and complain to get it taken off the shelves!

Ah, that's better - this time I can agree with Andy Lewis. But why campaign to get the magazine taken off the shelves? It's subject to the same laws as anyone else - if it says that "ingredient X" or "treatment Y" DEFINITELY IS effective then it can be called to task in a court of law in exactly the same way that any practitioner of the dark arts can.

You can get science fiction novels from the same source.

It is full of missinformation and promoting unproven alternitive medical treatments and scare stories about 'big pharma' and conventional medicine.
