Science, wrote Adam Smith back in 1776, “is the great antidote to the poison of enthusiasm and superstition.”
Editor’s commentary: In March of 2007 Dr. Darrel Crain had an article published in a biweekly column of a local San Diego newspaper regarding the Human Papilloma Virus vaccine. With the author’s permission, a copy of that article appeared on Planet Chiropractic later that month.

White lightning flashed across the sky as the 2010 Dead Chiropractic Society (DCS) California Jam shaked the foundations of the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa California on March 12, 13th, and 14th.
