When I first read that Rep. Tom Price, R-Georgia, Donald Trump's choice for Secretary of Health and Human Services, is a member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), I literally gasped.

I became aware of the AAPS several years ago through the organization's support of British researcher Andrew Wakefield and his thoroughly discredited, fear-mongering campaign against the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. But, as I researched the AAPS back then, I soon learned that its members held other, even more bizarre beliefs.

Don't let the group's name fool you. The AAPS may sound like a respectable medical organization, but as Mother Jones reporter Stephanie Mencimer pointed out in 2009, it is anything but.
