Home remedies, traditional remedies, quack medicine Answered
I've been noticing a growing number of home and traditional remedies appearing. I don't doubt that some of them might have some slight benefit. But on the other hand, some are utterly worthless and a waste of time and money.
I have a concern that less knowledgeable people may assume that because a remedy is listed here that it is, in fact, a reliable means of alleviating whatever ill they possess.
I would like to see a flag/banner for all such instructables noting that the medical claims made in the instructable are entirely anecdotal and have mostly likely never been examined by any medical researchers.
I'm not against the use of traditional remedies. I simply don't want someone to forego treatment by a physician on the basis of what they've just read here.
