TODAY'S eTIP(TM): Looking Into Alternative Cancer Treatments

Some vendors of nonregulated dietary supplements that claim to
cure cancer insist that the healthcare industry, working hand in
hand with the government, suppresses the scientific truth about
such products because the profit margin is smaller than from
sales of standard anticancer drugs.

That's a fine conspiracy theory, but it isn't true. In 1992, the
U.S. government established the National Center for Complementary
and Alternative Medicine, which is "dedicated to exploring
complementary and alternative healing practices in the context of
rigorous science." Medical researchers conduct studies of
traditional and indigenous medicine (such as Native American
medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, and traditional Chinese medicine),
as well as studies of plant-based supplements. Curious about the
results? See the Web site [ http://nccam.nih.gov/ ].
