There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

Fereydoon Batmanghelidj was a doctor and alternative medicine promoter. He claimed that the true cause of much disease is really dehydration, and that many diseases can be cured simply by drinking large amounts of water. The Amazon reviews for his books include many anecdotes supposedly demonstrating this, involving diseases from asthma to heart disease.
