Trine Tsouderos/Chicago Tribune to hold online chat tomorrow

30 Jun

Join Chicago Tribune Science and Medical Reporter Trine Tsouderos tomorrow for an online chat about unproven and potentially dangerous alternative treatments for autism. Here is the link to join in. The fun starts July 1 at noon CST.

Tsouderos recently wrote about the FDA’s clamp down on Prof. Body Haley, a retired chemist who markets a toxic waste treatment chemical for the treatment of autism.

That article is the latest in a year-long investigation by Trine Tsouderos and Patricia Callahan into questionable autism treatments. The series earned the Chicago Tribune a first place in the Awards for Excellence in Health Care Journalism. The series was kicked off in March, 2009, with “Dubious Medicine”, which exposed the father-son team of Mark and David Geier, who use chemical castration drugs to “treat” disabled children.

    Science Mom, I fixed the link. Thanks for pointing that out. I am told there will be a link to follow in the Tribnation site tomorrow, July 1, that will lead you to the chatroom. That’s at 12 pm, CST. The chat will last about an hour.
