While that would be nice, I think "Skeptic Solidarity" is an oxymoron by definition.

I already posted this in Health but it seems like it would be in Dr. Novella's wheelhouse:

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/14/opinion/sunday/should-we-all-take-a-bit-of-lithium.html

I was intrigued but it raised a few red flags in my mind, making pretty grandiose claims about the benefits of Lithium and complaining about scientific prejudice and Big Pharma conspiracy (though those claims were stated relatively weakly.)  Is there any solid science behind the suggestion that low-level doses of Lithium have a positive effect on mood or brain function?
Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade, and yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
