Sense About Science Charity Attacks Easy Prey

Celeb Stupidity, originally uploaded by ddbsweasel.

Nicole Kidman, Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella McCartney have been attacked by the charity group Sense About Science.

Sense About Science warned: "A small group of people in the public eye promote pseudo-science without embarrassment and cannot be dissuaded from it."

However, the charity then names some tame examples of what it considers to be pseudo science. Attacking dietary claims or product endorsements.

It is indisputable that known celebrities are endorsing junk science. Those targeted by the group, however, are lame examples.

Better examples would be those who endorse Global Warming hysteria, or Scientology or those PETA activists who want to prevent zoo keepers from saving the life of Knut or farmers from preventing fly strike.

Thing is, alternative medicine endorses the Paltrow position on diet without evidence. But the religious claims made by Scientologists, Global Warming or PETA occultists threaten world prosperity.
