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.

    BBC cancels CAM website reports that the BBC discontinued the complementary medicine section of its Health Website.

    Apparently, they were receiving “curious and abnormal amount of letters and e-mails demanding that information on such therapies as homeopathy and cranial osteopathy be removed.” is surprised, characterizing the BBC as “respected worldwide for its impartiality and integrity.”


    I think that assessment of the BBC is outdated. It might have been true 50 years ago, but not today. With respect to CAM, some pages still survive, but they are trivial and not worth the bandwidth.
