Senator Tom Harkin and others have injected stupid medical claims into the mainstream

This is the story, well told, of the idiocy of “Alternative Medicine” which is stupid quackery and if it was something better than that, it would be mainstream medicine.

I have no complaint about things that work, nor does any physician, but we do know what scientific evidence is and alternative medical claims are too often built on claims that, when investigated, are not proof of anything at all except the power of suggestion and hope and the placebo effect.
