Dr Ramzi Amri, of Harvard Medical School seems to think so.
One thing I do find interesting is this very unscientific observation…. Liberals love to call Conservatives unscientific, mainly because Conservatives tend to give Creationism some weight, and have skeptical views of Global Warming. Meanwhile, it seems to me that it is liberals who are much more likely to eschew scientifically proven medical treatments for various alternative “cures” and remedies.
Don’t get me wrong, this is not a blanket statement, as I know of some Conservatives who waste money on homeopathic products sold in stores, and I know of a few religiously minded liberals who believe in Creation. That said, in my experience, of the people I know personally and of things I’ve read of certain people supporting this or that “anti-scientific” position, it does seem to be the case.
I think there was a study or report / article about this very thing that came out a few weeks ago. Have to look for it.
PS. I am skeptical of some of the science used to push the alarmist global warming agenda, yet I’m also a HUGE fan of “The Skeptics Guide To The Universe“. I don’t have any problem with people who have differing views on any of this. The people I DO have a problem with are those who rip people off and at the same time doom them to certain death because they didn’t get actual medical treatment and shortened their lives.
Here is a solid rebuttal against Anri’s conjecture.
