Professor Edzard Ernst is reportedly against regulation of alternative medicine until there is evidence. In an article in the British Medical Journal on 5th May 2007 he argued that regulation would be interpreted by the public as having sufficient evidence to recommend it.

People are saying: 'We are fully regulated so don't ask us questions about whether this works or not.'" Science and Progress (7th May 2007)
