The Placebo Effect – a free powerpoint presentation for you

 “The Placebo Effect” was the topic for a recent presentation at the Center For Inquiry Indiana. Judging by attendance and the follow-up questions the topic was one that interested people. Is the placebo effect real? Can it lessen pain and nausea? How does it work? Why does it work? Why is it an important consideration in all scientific testing and research? I decided to make the PPP available to to secular humanists and science lovers who might have an interest and were unable to attend my presentation. 

All you have to do is Email me,, and I’ll send you the whole Placebo PPP free of charge. I hope you use it wisely and often for your own edification and for that of others you may think have need of it. Friends and enemies alike will enjoy the hard facts and come to realize that without its consideration scientific research is lacking and incomplete. It can be used for deception and for clarification, so use it wisely


About cgosling

I am a retired medical/scientific illustrator and creator of patient teaching simulators, who has given up illustration to write about science, superstition, and secular humanism. I consider myself all of the following: atheist, agnostic, secular humanist, freethinker, skeptic, and nature lover. I have several published books but the mass of my writing is unpublished. I write children's fiction, poetry, essays, and several plays and radio theater shows, that are available as free downloads to be used on secular podcasts and meetings. They can be heard on Indy Freethought Radio or on YouTube “secularradiotheater”. I hope some of my writings will be of interest to like minded freethinkers who I cordially invite to respond. I am also a Darwin impersonator. I invite readers to listen to and use the Darwin script for secular purposes.
