Are MDs really on board?
Buz: many MDs are integrating [alternatives] in their practice.

I'd like to see data to support this claim.

It's true that many patients augment their medical treatments with alternative remedies. MDs generally say little about it as long as the alternatives don't affect the protocol.

Plenty of cancer patients get acupuncture. But I have yet to hear of an oncologist referring a patient to an acupuncturist--even for supplemental treatment.

Please support your assertion.

profit without honour
About the 'alternative medicine' industry nator tells Buz:

6 BILLION dollars a year is still a big, big business.

Especially when one remembers that the profits come entirely from people spending out of pocket. No help from insurance and subsidies.

And that's on top of what they already spend on health care.

For a product that says plainly on the label that it offers no demonstrated health benefit.
