AMSA takes PharmFree to a new level

They’ve devoted a new web site to it. What does it mean to be PharmFree? According to the web site (my italics):

AMSA promotes the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of the current best evidence in clinical care.

It’s straight out of David Sacket’s definition of evidence based medicine. It’s a joke, though, because the medicine AMSA actually promotes is some of the most extreme and non-evidence based woo of any mainstream medical organization I know of.
