It may be a placebo, but it's a really good placebo!

Hey, welcome to my blog. I'll be posting commentary on various things and analyzing them from a logical/evidence-based view. For my first post, here is a pseudoscientific ad that was in my local paper. "Well the expert scientific opinion is that our product is just a placebo, but tons of non-experts say it worked for them. You might as well try it, why the hell not. Hey, at least it's 100% pure placebo, with no hormones. Just ask your friends about HCG! Never mind that they'll probably just say 'What?' or 'You mean that stuff in pregnant women's urine?'"

I guess I do agree that you shouldn't settle for homeopathy. But I don't think this stuff is any better...
