About this product
- DescriptionIn this book Tony Robertson exposes the myth that is the efficacy of alternative medicine. Why does the NHS include homeopathy in its prescribable drugs? Why are people allowed to go to malarial countries with the only protection advised by homeopaths being salt tablets? People die, people are t cured, verifiable efficacy of alternative medicine is produced, and yet homeopathic 'cures' across the range of ailments and promoted by table figures such as Prince Charles, continue to be sold. In Quackery, The 20 Million Dollar Duck, Tony Robertson examines the claims of alternative therapies such as acupuncture: can it really stop smoking addiction, enable surgery to be carried out without anaesthetic, cure hearing loss ...? Unsurprisingly data for 'miracle' cures and therapies is thin on the ground. For a full expose of the dangers of 'quackery' this book is a must.
