The NYTimes Chemophobia is Bad For You
Last week I posted this article about alternative treatment methods used to treat a boy with juvenile arthritis.
Slate.com, per usual, seems to be disagreeing just to be oppositional. This rebuttal focuses on only a fraction of the therapeutic treatments discussed in Meadows’ article and practically ignores the fact that the alternative treatment was an effective treatment. Francl barely addresses the fact that a diet change and use of probiotics may have contributed to the boy’s recovery. Is it SO inconceivable that there are alternatives which may be as effective as pharmaceuticals?
