There are two assigned texts. One is on alternative medicine and the second is this book.
The book gives the student a broad range of articles from different authors. It presents it's arguments using a science based route of inquiry. It has made my students think about a subject that most of their future patients believe in.
I will use this book again.
If your idea of "scientific progress & technology" is eating high fructose GMO corn syrup loaded processed poisons by KFC, Domino's Pizza, Dunkin Donuts, Coke, Pepsi...grown on massive scale factory "farms"...destroy your immune systems, develop gluten/peanut/lactose/spring pollen...allergies, cancers, juvenile diabetes, Alzheimer's disease....get loaded on poisons of chemotherapy, Lipitor, Prozac, Viagra and Aspartame to cure these ills....then sure, by all means knock yourself out & subscribe to this author's ideologies.
