Suckers: How Alternative Medicine Makes Fools of Us All - Rose ShapiroHarvill Secker, 2008, Paperback (Uncorrected Book Proof).
Condition: Near FIne.
From the cover: “’Alternative’ medicine is now used by one in three of us, and in the UK we spend more than £4.5 billion a year on it. Treatments like homeopathy, acupuncture and chiropractic are widely available and considered reputable by many. Endorsed by celebrities and embraced by the middle classes, alternative medicine is surrounded by an aura of unquestioning respect and promoted through uncritical airtime and column inches. “Suckers” reveals how alternative medicine can jeopardise the health of those it claims to treat, leaches resources from treatments of proven efficacy and is largely unaccountable and unregulated. In short, it preys on human vulnerability and makes fools of us all.”.
