"A new study in the December issue of Contemporary Pediatrics recommends the use of acupuncture to treat children with chronic pain or nausea, claiming to have evaluated the effectiveness of acupuncture for children by examining its use in adults. However, the flaws in the research reflect ongoing problems in other acupuncture studies……[the authors] only recommend it [acupuncture] for patients with "values and world views consistent with acupuncture". This admission handily illustrates what years of research has shown — acupuncture is a matter of belief, not medicine." Howard Fienberg, Tech Central Station (December 2002)
