Brandolini's law, coined by Alberto Brandolini in 2013, also known as the bullshit asymmetry principle, is an internet adage
which emphasises the difficulty of debunking bullshit:
"The amount of energy needed to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude larger than to produce it."
Red flag 🚩 signs for bullshit:
- overly confident use of technical language/ word spaghetti
- Charisma, misuse of authority
- Use of buzzwords e.g. biohacking, muscle amnesia, adhesions, fatigue, bioavailability, toxins, hormones, alkaline, imbalance, proprioception microbiome, inflammation.
