    See also a recent Popular Mechanics smack down of Magano' pseudoscience.

    Agreed! The issue of junk science gaining traction via social media and celebs is extremely troubling.

    As well, the video cited shows how a local California ABC TV station was duped by a bogus "study" Mangano had published by a vanity publisher. So even folks who should be higher up in the BS-vetting process get duped into spreading junk-science memes.

    Unfortunately, when it comes to science, there is no "BS-vetting process" for most people, news organizations, political organizations, etc.
