Washington Joins Indiana and Maryland in Revoking Mark Geier’s License

Posted Oct 12 2012 8:33pm

This from a short article at Harpocrates Speaks: Washington Joins Indiana and Maryland in Revoking Mark Geier’s License .

Details on the Washington actions can be found here an the recent order here .

Three states have revoked Mark Geier’s license to practice medicine. Missouri, Illinois and Hawaii still allow him to practice.

Mark Geier promoted the idea that autism could be treated by stopping the body from producing sex hormones (in specific, testosterone) based on a scientifically implausible argument that mercury bonded to testosterone. He diagnosed children with precocious puberty in order to justify prescriptions of Lupron and similar drugs which shut down sex hormone production.
