With people like this, alternative medicine will struggle to get any validation, it will continue to be viewed as coming from the lunatic fringe. With friends like these people, alternative medicine sure doesn't need any enemies.
Totally agree. Just look at how many times I have been called a pharmaceutical shill just because I exposed some flaw in someone's reasoning about some alternative. Yet anyone that has bothered to follow my posting would know that I feel pharmaceuticals are an absolute last resort, and most should be completely banned for human use. In addition that I have been working with alternative medicines for over 19 years. So I am not anti-alternative by any means, just anti-quack alternatives. And I am not pro-pharmaceutical at all.
