RationalWiki's 2020 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 who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

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

Donations so far: $1680Goal: $3500

Clinically unproven

Dr. Russell Blaylock (1945–) is a retired neurosurgeon and a member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (which are synonymous anyway).

He is a prominent member of the mercury militia, having frequently written and given speeches on the dangers of vaccines and dental woo about mercury amalgam fillings.[1] He also attacks other classic alternative medicine bogeymen like aspartame and water fluoridation.[2]

He peddles a mixture of vitamin supplements and other assorted nature woo he calls the "Brain Repair Formula."

Newsmax allows him to spread his blatherskite with their "Dr. Blaylock Wellness Report" segment, where, in addition to promoting his woo, he rails against the spectre of health care rationing and claims the Soviets were responsible for creating widespread drug usage and other health epidemics in America.[3] He has also appeared on Infowars.[4][5] and Natural News.[6]


Blaylock apparently showed some Skepticism about Obamacare.[7].
