Science

"Is there a dietary treatment for multiple sclerosis?"

Ignore the gratuitous slam of pharmaceutical companies near the end and enjoy both a mom's fierce struggle to help her daughter combined with an interesting meditation on what should qualify as scientific truth.

(I note that while the author makes a fine case for loosening the standard in the case at hand, there is a good reason why scientists have that standard: loosening it would force consideration of a whole lot more nonsense. We need to compare the benefits and costs of changing the standard and there are formidable obstacles to that. Life is difficult sometimes.)
