A fairly disturbing article about how pseudoscientific nonsense is becoming accepted practice in many medical centers:

A disturbing example of quackademic medicine at an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center

Can we as a society really point and laugh at people freaking out about “mubobobo” when we have University cancer treatment centers offering newage like reiki and reflexology? We have become so “tolerant of diverse cultures” that we don’t seem to be able to say ” no, sorry, that’s *wrong*” to utter anti-scientific nonsense.

    what’s frightening is how much of this at a local “clinic” level was and is deliberately allowed under O’care.

    >>deliberately allowed under O’care.
    Yes, and that’s where I hope some serious legal challenges will be made.
    Under O’care I will be forced, under penalty of law, to pay for witchcraft, voodo and fairy dust. This will not stand.
