Questionable! #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z
Ordinary people believe only in the possible.
Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what’s impossible.
And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible
And I am that ordinary person who believes in the impossible.
Come and try the amazing potions I serve! Guaranteed to cure everything!
My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Crime Stories in 55 Words.
Today’s story, Q is for Quackery…

Too many quacks on the medical scene these days and too many victims who fall prey to their wiles.

That is a very questionable claim indeed. 🙂 But then again, these days the internet is a kind of magic potion promising all kinds of results 🙂

Those potions look tempting. But, no thanks. 🙂

Seriously Shilpa the number of quacks (even supported by Government )is increasing day by day.You just have to pray to God and trust your own judgment.But it’s heartbreaking the amount of damage quackery does everyday

Reminds of of those roadside medical caravans.. those gypsy looking things.. which claim to cure any ailment!!!
April 20, 2017 1:56 pm|
Oh yes, so many of these. Here, in B’lore, at every corner there’s a “Baba tent” that offers miracle cures for any ailment under the sun.

So many of them out there that people fall for their quackery. I guess it also has to do with the consultation fees that real doctors charge. Some of them are absolutely unmatched.

Some say anything is possible. Bright colours attract. Some people are gullible. I don’t think I am.
Another day in Amble Bay!

Quackery is very common and very dangerous. Good one shilpa.
April 20, 2017 7:07 pm|
Reminds me of the road side tent stores that promise to cure any disease and problem.

A not so gloomy post for a change! 😀

The word guarantee and everything are what makes the punchline so apt to the title!

Who would know this better than me?? Being a doctor I get to see the amazing cures(read complications) that these people’s potions offer.

AI ya yai. Don’t get me started. In Kerala, we have so many of these sellers of dreams. And unfortunately, as the doctor, we get the patient after he’s tried all these ‘cures’

She/He sounds convincing. I’d go to her if I could.
