Such prevalence of the specious anti-science has injurious ramifications. Steve Jobs was the victim of his obdurate belief in alternative medicine. Mitt Romney did an about-face on global warming after Rush Limbaugh counted him out of the Republican primaries. Adults in the United States spend close to $34 billion out of pocket annually on alternative medicine, while the government can afford to spend only $5 billion on cancer research. Two thirds of Americans want creationism to be taught along with evolution in public schools, and three quarters of them accept at least one form of paranormal belief.
