With bachelor’s degrees in pharmacy and nursing, as well as a master’s in psychiatric nursing, I’ve spent a lot of time in school.  I have a strong science background and I know how to read and understand a research paper.  All of that combined means I have a finely tuned bullshit-detector.  Debunking pseudoscience makes my mind do a happy dance, and I invite you along for the ride!
