Report top hospitals promote unproven therapies

They truly are one of the country's greatest health centers, at the top edge of scientific research. Yet hospitals connected with Yale, Duke, Johns Hopkins, along with high medical care centers also vigorously promote alternative treatments with very little if any scientific backing. They feature”energy healing” to help heal multiple sclerosis, acupuncture for infertility, and homeopathic bee venom such as fibromyalgia. A general forum hosted at the University of Florida's hospital also promises to spell out the herbal therapy could reverse Alzheimer's. This embrace of alternative medicine was around for several years. However, a STAT study of 1-5 academic research centres across the usa underscores how profoundly these treatments have come to be embedded into esteemed hospitals and healthcare schools.
