Watch Out For These 83 Weaselly, Quacktacular, Words

A few days ago I asked on Twitter for people's red flags of quackery words - words that if seen might suggest a less than evidence based approach.

I've compiled the ones I've received so far, and while of course there will be plenty of times where these words are used credibly, I'd venture that the more of these words you see on any particular website, the less likely that site's information is worthy of attention or action (unless of course the article is about quackery).

(the list is in no particular order, and if you think I've missed any, please share with me on Facebook or Twitter)
