    Hi Christopher,

    It seems the argument you had all relates to whether or not there are significant number of high quality, fully randomised, placebo controlled clinical studies about the effects of acupuncture.

    If you have somehow remained completely completely blind to their existence, then i would suggest you are making highly non scientific or evidenced based assertions. It is always important to not be the very thing you are complaining about.

    I can link you to quality acupuncture studies in various fields of medicine, just ask.

      I have never come across any quality acupuncture studies that have stood up to scrutiny. Not that this means they do not exist of course, but further is the point that the top evidence-based medical colleges (i.e. RACS and RACGP) and scientific societies (the Royal Society, the Australian Academy of Science and the US National Academy of Science) do not advocate its use. Dr. Steve Novella of Science-Based Medicine has done some great debunking of numerous acupuncture studies you might be interested in looking up.
