Frontline Followup

I caught last night's show on the Alternative Fix. Massage was only mentioned once as the third most popular CAM modality following meditation/prayer and chiropractic.

One of the vignettes featured a Toronto man who went to a NY MD doing alternative therapies to fight pancreatic cancer. After paying $2800 in cash up front for the therapy, he died anyway because his cancer was too advanced to be helped. I hope an ethical doctor would caution them that the therapy had less of a chance of working in advanced cancers. I wish his family at least had gotten a partial refund.
