"Taken as a whole, the pattern of the acupuncture literature follows one with which scientists are very familiar: the more tightly controlled the study the smaller the effect, and the best controlled trials are negative. This pattern is highly predictive of a null-effect — that there is no actual effect from acupuncture." Steven Novella, MD, NeuroLogica Blog (25th August 2008)
