RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

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 seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Joel Brind is a professor at Baruch College, City University of New York and a pro-lifer, best known for pushing the discredited link between abortion and breast cancer. After he published a meta-analysis in 1996 which was sharply criticized,[1] he has preferred to push this link via his organization, "The Breast Cancer Prevention Institute". Also, he seems to be an IDiot, as evidenced by the presence of his name on the Discovery Institute's list.


Since 1992 Dr. Brind has written and lectured extensively on his pseudoscientific claim about a connection between abortion and breast cancer, having been invited to discuss his claims on news programs of major television and radio networks, including CNN, CBS, CBC, NPR, and ABC, as well as writing articles for newspapers (the NYT and Wall Street Journal) and magazines (Time, Newsweek, and US News and World Report).[2]
