No miracle cure for junk science

Why does the Sydney Morning Herald condemn the pseudoscience of cosmetics while uncritically endorsing baloney such as reiki on the next page? Of course you feel relaxed Ms Brown. You are in a quiet room without a cell phone or the internet, and you probably have some pan-pipes music playing in the background, while your reiki master bores with tales of pilgrimages to the Far East. This is nothing to do with energy fields. This is junk science being used to back up expensive nonsense. Ms Brown has been undergoing reiki treatments for 18 months, which means 36 treatments, probably costing several thousand pounds.
