Stephen Barrett of Quackwatch Sued by Doctor’s Data

Stephen Barrett is a retired American psychiatrist. He is also an author, co-founder of the National Council Against Health Fraud(NCAHF), and the webmaster of Quackwatch. His activities focus on consumer protection, medical ethics, and scientific skepticism.

Recently, Barrett wrote an article on a urine tocix metal test done by a firm called Doctor’s Data, in which he explains why in his opinion this test is used to defraud patients.

Many scientists have stated that Barrett’s article is perfectly correct and have spoken out in support of him.

Sadly, most alternative health practitioners are not keen on scientific debate and prefer legal thuggery instead.

Doctor’s Data is no exception, and they have deciced to sue Dr Barrett for the sum of $10 million.
