Chiropractic is Dead!

Or, at least, that's what Harriet Hall and I would like for newspapers to say. Check out her article about a study by four chiropractors which finds no connection between subluxations and disease.

Of any kind.

At all.

Did I mention that the study was published by chiropractors?

The Institute for Science in Medicine

The Institute for Science in Medicine is a new organization know what? I'll just reprint their mission statement:

The ISM is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to promoting high standards of science in all areas of medicine and public health. We are a watchdog group of medical professionals who believe the best science available should be used to determine health policy and establish a standard of care that protects and promotes the public health. We oppose legislation that seeks to erode the science-based standard of care and expose the public to potentially fraudulent, worthless, or harmful medical practices or products.

And there you go. It turns out that some mission statements actually rock.
