Alternative medicine is not medicine,it is a gimmick and misinformation-health

Category:Common Interest - Health & Wellness

Description:Alternative medicine is not medicine, it is a gimmick and/ or misinformation that is accepted as truth and distributed to either the ignorant, unaware, or desperate. Billions of dollars go into these alternative techniques that do not have any scientific basis. I believe that if we were to stop spending money on this alternative medicine industry that we could possibly lessen the health crisis in this country.

Like Richard Dawkins stated, "There is no alternative medicine. There is only medicine that works and medicine that doesn't work."

If alternative medicines were able to stand up to laboratory testing, then they would no longer be considered alternative.

There are many thousands of more conditions that people suffer from that hinders their lives. And again, alternative medicine is there with the promises to cure it.

Lets end alternative medicine once and for all. Lets put a stop to quackery. I have listed some recommended sites that can help you if you are having trouble understanding alternative medicine or if you just need to find out the truth. Each of these websites has been researched by myself and I promise you that they are reputable.
