More people than ever are using alternative medicine. But, as expert Dr Paul Offit explains, these untested therapies are ineffective, expensive & even deadly. Now that homeopathic remedies are offered on the NHS, it's clear that various therapies once considered alternative or complementary, have become mainstream
- prescribed to burn fat, shrink prostates, alleviate colds, reduce stress, eliminate pain & prevent cancer. At the same time, uptake of effective vaccines such as MMR has fallen
- a disturbing trend which, in the case of the MMR, has lead to a sharp rise in the number of measles cases. In ' Killing Us Softly' Paul Offit reveals, alternative medicine
- an unregulated industry under no obligation to prove its claims or admit its risks
- can actually be very harmful. In ' Killing Us Softly' he exposes how: * Homeopathic asthma preparations & bogus cancer cures have replaced life-saving medicines. * Acupuncture needles have pierced hearts, lungs, & livers & transmitted viruses, including hepatitis B, hepatitis C & HIV. * Chiropractic manipulations have torn arteries. * Megavitamins increase the risk of cancer & heart disease-a fact well known to scientists but virtually unknown to the public. Using real-life case histories to back his argument, Dr Offit shows us why any medical treatment
- alternative or conventional
- must be properly evaluated. ' There's no such thing as alternative medicine. There's only medicine that works & medicine that doesn't.'
