We've come full-circle...
When the self-named "Quackbusters" stumbled around, years ago, to find a derisive name to call their victims, they picked the word "Quack," without ever bothering to discover it's origins. Its original meaning, from Europe, comes from the term "quacksalver" which was used to describe Dentists who were dumb enough to use mercury (a poison) as fillings for teeth. Look at propagandist, and "Quackbuster" king-pin, Stephen Barrett's website (www.quackwatch.com), and you'll find that HE IS IN FAVOR of mercury (amalgam) tooth fillings. Barrett, his cronies, and minions, are not known to do intelligent research.
But it gets stranger, and stranger.
In California, where wine is the State flower (not actually), we've got the health freedom movement attacking the "quacks," the "real "quacks," the ones originally described by the European health community, as those dumb enough to use mercury (a poison) as fillings for teeth. And, the self styled "quackbusters" are calling those against mercury "quacks."
What's happening is that the Dental Division of
the North American Health Freedom Movement is relentlessly pursuing the
California Dental Association's support of mercury as a tooth filling through
the courts, now, all the way to the California Supreme Court. Read the
article below by Washington DC Attorney Charlie Brown.

The CDA will now be forced to defend its so-called rules of conduct before the nation's most closely watched State Supreme Court. The case was summarized this way by the Los Angeles Daily Journal:
