Some horrific cases of CAM and autism

Filed under: General,Medicine,Science — tildeb @ 3:55 pm

Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) is growing in popularity and can be quite lucrative for practitioners of these therapies. CAM is also wending its way into publicly funded scientific medicine in spite of a lack of researched efficacy from solid studies. The strongest support for CAM usually comes from people who give the most weight to anecdotal stories and/or who believe that pharmaceutical companies (and their products) are, for lack of a better word,  evil. To at least balance in some very small way this reliance on positive anecdotal evidence, I offer these case studies from Science-Based Medicine’s blog.
