How False Rumours Cost Lives

The good people at Making Light have flagged up this article on how false rumours can cost lives. It's an interesting read and full of good advice, my favourite is:
Does the person believe in other highly improbable theories, like the Time Cube, extraterrestrial lizards controlling the world, creationism, homeopathy, the idea that vaccines are ineffective and a conspiracy of silence among all doctors to poison our children, or that Barack Obama is secretly a Muslim? Maybe their judgment isn’t very good.
