Wrong place for science?

I am told I am in the wrong place--that there is no place for Science here? Hmmm. I guess I was mistaken--although the logo at the top of the page does say: "Educating instead of medicating." To me educating is more than just telling stories. It is about information and facts, but I can clearly see that this is a place where the facts are an annoyance. As a researcher and health educator I was hoping that I might be of use--that I might help someone avoid the uncessary cost and discomfort of what may be a worthless procedure. But I can see my help is not desired.

I am told to do my own reserach. I thought this was a forum designed to assist others. Guess I was wrong again. Well, I did some research and this is what I found from the alternative dictionary at Iherb:

"Much the same can be said about all of the other popular detoxification methods. However, in the case of one form of
detoxification, colon cleansing, the theory behind the technique is definitely wrong. According to this nineteenth-century
theory known as "colon health" or "colon hygiene," years of bad diet cause the colon to become caked with layer upon
layer of accumulated toxins. This accumulation is said to resemble sedimentary rock. High colonics, which are
essentially enemas that reach far up into the large intestine, are said to release the accumulated buildup and thereby
restore health. However, in recent decades physicians have performed colon examinations to search for colon cancer in
millions of patients, and their findings do not support the theory. Most of the patients given these examinations are at
least middle-aged, and not very many have devoted their lives to healthy diets and clean colons. According to the colonic
hygiene theory, colon examinations on such patients should turn up concrete-like deposits. However, all that shows up
during a typical colonoscopy is fresh, pink flesh. Unfortunately, proponents of colonics do not seem to have assimilated
this information; they continue to recount theories about the colon that were shown to be untrue decades ago."
