Puncturing The Acupuncture Myth

A session at CSICON

  • Harriet A. Hall

Saturday 29th October, 2011

8:30am to 9:00am (CST)

Alternative medicine is sometimes defined as medicine that hasn’t been proven to work. But what about acupuncture? Isn’t there plenty of evidence that it works? Yes, but the evidence is weak, inconsistent, flawed, unconvincing, and compatible with the hypothesis that acupuncture is only an elaborate placebo system.
