●BAD Science blogger: vindicated – v rich man, aids drug denouncer backs down

13Sep08

Good news for BAD SCIENCE blogger & Gaurdian columnist, Dr Ben Goldacre, whom exposes all the bad science us unscientific types often fall for – hook line and sinker.

[South African] vitamin pill magnate Matthias Rath has pulled out of his gruelling legal case against me and the Guardian. He bought full page adverts denouncing Aids drugs while promoting his vitamin pills in South Africa, a country where hundreds of thousands die every year from Aids under an HIV denialist president and the population is ripe for miracle cures. I said his actions were highly worrying, in no uncertain terms. I believe I was right to do so.
