I was going to jump and buy it, but the summary proves a single point. It is a book that can be written in five pages. The rest is fluff and padding. There is one point that should have been driven very hard, and I am not sure it is.
Alternative medicine harms and kills, with examples. One I have heard is a story about a man with prostate cancer that is a slow cancer. He started taking herbal medicine on the side and ... wamo the cancer turned virulent. The reason, the herb he took had a natural version of adrenalin, a big no no. How did they find out? He exhibited the same symptoms as another. Should they jail the "practitioner" ?
There are a lot more arguments, but it should be driven that the "practice" is full of people taking advantage of people in need
