A Matter Of Opinion

Science and politics meet again

Global warming has become politicized, but did you know there’s an alternative to the American Medical Association? 

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul belongs to a professional organization - billed as a conservative alternative to the American Medical Association – that holds some questionable medical views, including that HIV doesn’t cause AIDS, abortion increases a woman’s risk for breast cancer, President Barack Obama hypnotized voters in 2008, and that “there is no settled science on anything”.

Next step: Texas School Board demands that this information be placed in textbooks. Teach the controversy!
