For many years, Quackwatch.org and its related websites have been an indispensable and trusted resource in the fight to expose the fraud of health-related pseudoscience and fake medicine. Their mission will continue as part of the Center for Inquiry.
Quackwatch and its related sites house an exhaustive array of information, advice, and news for consumers, activists, media, regulatory agencies, and health professionals. Most of the sites are topic specific and focus on such subjects as Naturopathy, Chiropractic, Traditional Chinese Medicine (including acupuncture), Homeopathy, phony cancer treatments and questionable medical devices.
To ensure that the information remains available, Quackwatch has become part of the Center for Inquiry (CFI), which will maintain its sites and receive Dr. Barrett’s research library later this year.
The Center for Inquiry (CFI) is a nonprofit educational, advocacy, and research organization headquartered in Amherst, New York, with executive offices in Washington, D.C. It is also home to the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason & Science, the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, and the Council for Secular Humanism. The Center for Inquiry strives to foster a secular society based on reason, science, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values. Visit CFI on the web at centerforinquiry.org.by
