Americans throw creationists and climate change denialists under the bus for pseudoscience while at the same time buying modern snake oils, cancer cure-alls, avoiding vaccines, detox and cleanse, believe avoiding meat solves everything, eat gogi berry pills, read astrology, take homeopathic medicine and read books on the laws of intent.
