"There's certainly no scientific evidence to show this," she added.

Hyde said she knew people who planned to euthanize their pets because they believed the world was coming to an end.

"The problem is ignorance has its consequences," she said.

Also in the line of fire were - homeopathic therapy, Power Balance sports bracelets and TV's Paul Henry.
