NIH Director Calls for Rigorous Evaluation of Integrative Medicine to Provide Evidence of Efficacy

NIH Director Calls for Rigorous Evaluation of Integrative Medicine to Provide Evidence of Efficacy – The ASCO Post.

Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health, wants to continue finding complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) modalities in cancer because they are popular?  So, we ignore the fact that most CAM has no basis in science (basic principles biology, chemistry, physiology and physics are misunderstood or even dismissed)?  We ignore the fact that there is no CAM therapy has ever been shown to work?

Collins, you’re much smarter than me, better educated, and more successful in medicine.  So, are you deluded?  Well, I actually have an answer to that (your fundamentalist Christian beliefs), but I’ll keep it to myself.   Oh, I guess I didn’t.
