The following websites (in our opinion) offer highly UNRELIABLE information on alleged "alternative" and "complementary" therapies. (Learning about "alternative medicine" by reading the material these sites provide is, in our view, very much like investigating evolution by reading the material provided by "Creation Science" advocates. Some of the information offered is accurate, but much of it is demonstrably false, and much of the remainder is highly misleading. Accurate information tends to be cited only if it supports the particular "alt modality" the website operators are promoting. Scientific studies and literature refuting their claims and beliefs tend to be "invisible" on their sites. Many of the individuals responsible for these Websites are practitioners of the modality or modalities they are promoting. It seems reasonable to assume many of them are heavily "invested" in their favored "alt med modality" -- emotionally, intellectually, professionally and even financially.) * * * Denotes Veterinary websites.
