There is a great show on Showtime called Penn & Teller Bullshit! On the show the pair known for their slight of hand magic shows bring to light the claims of flim-flamers everywhere. There is a very good show from season one that profiles alternative medicine and puts the spotlight on scams from chiropractic medicine, reflexology, and magnet therapy. Among the best moments are the "healing powers" of the "magnetic" bracelet (so it was really a kids toy and contained NO magnets. All this goes to prove the mind is a powerful thing.
