Bioresonance, a study of pseudo-scientific language

Forsch Komplementarmed Klass Naturheilkd. 2004 Jun;11(3):171-3. doi: 10.1159/000079446.

Abstract

Clarity of language is an essential element for effective communication. Using the example of bioresonance therapy, this article demonstrates how pseudo-scientific language can be used to cloud important issues. This can be seen as an attempt to present nonsense as science. Because this misleads patients and can thus endanger their health, we should find ways of minimizing this problem.
