I wish I lived in Toronto…

…because then I could attend Dr. David Colquhoun’s lecture at the University of Toronto tomorrow.

Dr. Colquhoun, for those not familiar with him, is the eminent pharmacologist with the name that is exceedingly difficult to remember how to spell who runs DC’s Improbable Science, an excellent skeptical, scientific, and medical blog that routinely takes on dubious medical and scientific claims. A while back, his university (the University College of London) kicked his blog off its servers in response to complaints by disgruntled “alternative” therapists who did not like his science-based take on medicine. For any of my readers in Toronto, if you can possibly make it to Dr. Colquhoun’s talk, please do. You’ll be in for a treat.
