Is it P.C. culture? Is it pushback from big pharma and their powerful lobbyists? Who really knows why the attempt to stifle alternative medicine is so strong. But, the simple reality is that, this is a growing problem the global community must contend with.

This appears to be in direct response to a recent plea from conventional scientists who scathingly accused practitioners of misleading ill patients.
In a letter to Spanish health minister MaríaLuisa Carcedo Roces, these scientists also cited a few high profile deaths of cancer patients who opted to pursue alternative medicine techniques, relying on emotional currency to advance their agenda.
