This is a 15 page research paper for a class called “Debunking Pseudoscience.” As the name implies, it is a class about finding BS in any area of study. The course description is “This course will provide you with an understanding of the scientific method sufficient to detect pseudoscience in its many guises: paranormal phenomena, free-energy devices, alternative medicine, intelligent design creationism, denial of human-induced climate change, propaganda, science-based-medicine denialism, misuse of data and statistics, and many others. You will learn to think critically and to question outlandish claims, hype, and outright BS.” The paper guidelines are found at http://www.physics.smu.edu/pseudo/research.html. Specifically, I would like my paper to be on the topic “Do Americans really need vitamin pills?” Taking into account all the new information about how multi-vitamins are supposedly worthless. Any other questions you might have about the course or paper are surely answered at http://www.physics.smu.edu/pseudo/
