Offit's book is all about propaganda, dutifully pushed by the corporate news media while they neglect to publish accounts that truly debunk his supplement-slandering works. Besides that many alternative methods work but Offit fails to acknowledge it (read ), rather than asking "Why is some alternative medicine considered medicine at all?" the public should ask "Why do we consider that conventional medicine works when it kills a mountain of people every year with its products and treatments?" This is about politics.
