College of Quackery

Jobbing Doctor has drawn attention to this article of David Colquhoun about the new "College of Medicine", the latest attempt of our future King to infiltrate proper medicine with his looney friends and ideas. One particularly looney friend is Dr  Michael Dixon and Prof Colquhoun draws attention to some of the absurd "treatments" Dr Dixon subjects his unfortunate patients to.

One of these treatments is "Frequencies of Brilliance". This abbreviates to FOB, which is coincidentally also an abbreviation for the Faecal Occult Blood test. This is quite an appropriate coincidence as Frequencies of Brilliance, like all of Dr Dixon's treatments is bloody shite.
