An interesting review, of course. The book asks if CAM is ethical, and answers with a resounding “No.”
I expect I'll try to get hold of a copy in the next month or so.Conclusion: CAM is unethical
Ernst and Smith make a strong case that CAM is unethical, that it does more harm than good. Ethicists should be convinced. CAM practitioners and patients will not be, because their belief systems preclude an unbiased, rational scientific assessment. They will object as Ernst and Smith have predicted, but their objections have already been handily refuted. This book is well organized and well thought out. It was written to inform, not to entertain. It is not an easy or “fun” read, but it’s an important one.
