Weed – a miracle cure? – think again!
Weed has just become legalized in Canada, and that’s a great thing in my opinion. (you can read more about this in my article on the topic: )
There are, however, a few things that bother me about many of the pro-legalization campaigns. The main argument that makes me go through the roof is the medical miracle claims: “Weed, the miracle cure, curing anything from cancer to AIDS.” Seriously, guys!?
Why isn’t it enough to just say:
“I like getting stoned.”
Why is it necessary to make shit up? Can’t you just simply admit that you just like the feeling of getting high?
Ridiculous medical claims like these results in this issue not being taken seriously and may have the effect that research into real positive benefits of molecules like CBD may be delayed.
Doctor Anna has a rotten day and wants to share it with you. 😉
I have over the years learned to manage my condition (endometriosis) well. However, sometimes I feel like shit. This is a video of such a day as I didn’t want to only give you the glossy front.
I must remember that I have more medical privilege than most women in the world. Despite my pain, this is nothing in comparison to all those hundreds-of-thousands of women suffering in silence; undiagnosed and in pain. Even if they did get a diagnosis, they would have no access to medical care.
I must remember that before complaining too much.

Doctor Anna will carry out a hysterectomy due to her endometriosis and is both worried and relieved.
Endometriosis affects about 10 % of all women and is the second most common cause for infertility in European women. Endometriosis can hurt a lot.

I have endometriosis and adenomyosis. I have had several surgeries and hormone therapies. Now, I have reached a point where I will remove my uterus – a hysterectomy.
This is my journey.

Doctor Anna speaks of the ANTIVACCINE MOVEMENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA at SkepKon 2018. Film material: Andi Weimann. Material owned by GWUP.
“Don’t worry about those nutcases”, a doctor friend of mine told me. “These are just some idiot hippies that like alternative medicine and meditation. There are enough sensible people out there who vaccinate for this not to become dangerous to the general public”.
This is just one of many conversations I have had with medics, scientists, or public health workers who have dismissed the antivaccine communities as radicalized fringe groups with no real impact, or as “stupid and dumb”. What always struck me though, was that these same people were rarely active on social media and frankly had no idea what they were talking about. They were just as locked into their science fringe groups as the antivaccine movement they criticized.
To be honest, the anti-science groups are no longer fringe groups and these people are not stupid. These are normal people like you and me who have gotten their information flow warped and twisted inside echo chambers. Welcome to social media.

Thanks to our Patrons for supporting the site!
As a scientist, it is my job to admit when I am wrong and I acknowledge a few errors in my video on how to make home-made homeopathic coffee to treat my tiredness.
I hope to rectify those errors in this video.
Don’t do this at home and don’t buy heroin.
A great thank you to my Patrons for supporting this site!

I have felt a bit under the weather lately and got a tip from a “natural” website: take colloidal silver!
It claims to cure anything from AIDS to the flu.
