Toft, Mike – Alternative Medicine on Trial!!
Alternative Medicine on Trial!!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned during my years on this planet, it’s that believers in alternative medicine are rarely swayed by facts or logic. So if you’re one of those people, you’ll most likely just feel that this comic is an attack on you personally and will be offended. If, however, you are at all willing to be convinced, or if you already know that most forms of alternative medicine are pure quackery, you’re going to love this book. This tells the story of a trial involving an acupuncturist, a lady who practices homeopathy, and the head of an actual government organization. This government group is actually real and funded by taxes, in theory to investigate the efficacy of various types of alternative medicine. Mike brings some facts into the discussion, and they’re pretty damned convincing, but nothing drives his point home more effectively than the actual quote of the head of the government group. I thoroughly enjoyed this comic, and you probably will too if you’re willing to give it a shot.
