Intriguing. I think

Intriguing. I think he/she/they needs a medical bollocks category though. Granted, it kinda fits with pseudoscience, but there's so much of it that it can support its own category.

I think you could put Mormonism in the middle as well. They believe bigfoot is actually Cain.

Those are both good. My only

Those are both good. My only complaint about the periodic table is that it's really hard to read/navigate.

I never heard that before, but it doesn't surprise me. Sadly, their beliefs are so weird and crazy, I'd probably believe outright lies about what the believe.

 sorry guys but acupuncture

 sorry guys but acupuncture works.

I have tried it for my self and discarded placebo effect because I was and still am sckeptical regarding acupuncture.

Also there are clinical scientifical evidence that acupuncture might work.

That's the only thing I have to contest.

If you can't tell the difference, then use toothpicks as there is less chance of infection. Many acupuncturists don't use gloves and some don't properly sterilize the needles.

 I "only" know 3

 I "only" know 3 acupunturists and they all use sterilized Disposable needles. I believe they are not allowed to use non approved material. AND they are certainly not allowed to use re usable needles.

The ones I've met use gloves as well, to their own protecction too.

And yes, I do believe toothpicks might work too. Although I have to say acupuncture is much more than needles. Chinese medicine uses plant extracts and massage. All the therapists I know use these 3 aspects of the medicine combined. That's what they learn in chinese medicine.

Moreover acupuncture is the only aternative medicine (that I know of) that is approved by WHO
