|The Accountability of the Alternative Health Industry||
In a letter to the Newsgroup Mr. C.D wrote...
EXACTLY - it MAY work for her.......BUT.......
If you advocate that diabetics
take bilberry for their eye problems, then you do society and millions
of diabetics an injustice.
There's a problem that the alternative fringe seem to be immune from accusations of negligence, if their therapies dont work.
These people should also be responsible
for their advice to patients.
The lack of accountability of
the alternative health industry is alarming.
It DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE....... DELAYS in therapy for several serious diseases may mean disaster for many people.
So people out there - remember the alternative industry must PROVE themselves AS MUCH AS ANYONE ELSE. THEY MUST BE MADE ACCOUNTABLE.
Don't accept anecdotes - ITS NOT GOOD ENOUGH.....
