Quackwatch.com

You know about the doctor, William Hammesfahr, who'se been claiming that Terri Schiavo isn't in a PVS. And how the cable networks treat him as if he is a genuine Nobel Prize nominee (which he isn't). Guess what? He's in the quackwatch.com database? How about that?

Yes, our press will be right on top of that.

Also, he's not published in any journals indexed by the National Library of Medicine -- journals otherwise known as "real journals."

Instead, he publishes, such as it is, in an internet journal called "lifelines" which resides on a domain called Medforum.com

- The registration address and phone number for Medforum.com are Hammesfahr's own office addy and phone.
- The Editorial board includes himself, another Hammesfahr (his brother?), an employee of his, and other health people around Florida ( likely his friends?).

I dig into his website and find some details about Lifelines in this post. In this followup post I summarize a bit, and add a few more details and some new info.

The guy is pretty damned low, imo.
