Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Charges dropped against Dr. Rath

    Last July, charges were brought against alternative medicine practitioner Matthias Rath for allegedly breaking German law on advertising drugs. Dr. Rath advocates a vitamin treatment to cure cancer. Background on the case is summarized here.

    Now the case has been dropped.

    The judge stated that, in the judgment of the court, the research by Dr. Rath was not charlatanism, but that on the contrary he “was probably playing a pioneering role” in exploring alternative ways of combating cancer.

    Dr. Rath still has his critics, but at least he’s not going to jail.
