  1. David Taylor, MD, PhD says:

    The headline “Prestigious NY Cancer Center Will Spend $3.7M To Study Bogus Cancer Treatment” is a bit deceptive — MSK is proposing to use acupuncture for pain management, which is often part of “cancer treatment” regimens, but is not treatment of cancer. Acupuncture may be a bogus form of pain treatment, but to imply that it’s a form of cancer treatment might not be accurate.
